Bob Eubanks

Relive your glory days with never-before-seen-or-heard photos and stories of the Beatles! Bob Eubanks, acclaimed TV host of the Newlywed Game, shared an intimate and long-standing relationship with this beloved musical group. Lean in as he shares private photos and videos of the Fab Four and reveals the story behind their hit songs Hey Jude, Let It Be and Sgt. Pepper.  Look back fondly on our many years singing and dancing to the Beatles, and sharing some of our most special memories huddled around the record player and turn dial!

Most successful planners possess the ability to communicate and connect regardless of the situation. In a highly-competitive environment filled with countless communication channels and digital distractions, delivering your message is more challenging than ever. Not only do planners need to communicate effectively, but they need to connect on a much deeper level. Learn to create critical relationships that drive productivity, engagement and collaboration and see your planning take flight!
