Bernie has been actively involved in the National Indian Gaming Association and is a major speaker at industry conferences. His talk on the history of Las Vegas (where he lived for 21 years) is exciting, interesting and popular as are his talks on business and relationship building.

When his internationally respected wife, Anna, was diagnosed with cancer in 2010, Bernie put his career on hold and spent the next two and one half years at her side making certain that her final journey was as comfortable as possible.

The Book “How to prepare for Old Age (Without Taking the Fun Out of Life), was published in May of 2015 and introduced at the New York Book Fair the end of May 2015. It is a humorous, touching and anecdotal book about the journey through life.

His first Book” Revenue Generation Through the Sale of Kumquats and ------- Other Things” has been most successful. To speak with Bernie contact his publisher Michael at mconant@incorgnitobooks.com.

Review:

"Written with practical insight, humor, and dedicated to the memory of Bernie's wife Anna Patricia Otis, "How To Prepare for Old Age" is as informed and informative as it is inspired and inspiring. Thoroughly 'reader friendly' in organization and presentation, "How To Prepare for Old Age" is a compelling read from cover to cover..."   - Midwest Book Review
