Special Guest

Henry Winkler

Henry Winkler's portrayal of The Fonz for 10 seasons on Happy Days (1974-1984) made him one of the most recognized actors in the world. He won two consecutive Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor in a Comedy Series (1976 and 1977), and three Emmy nominations in the same category. He was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the leather jacket the character wore has hung in The Smithsonian since 1980. Fonzie's lunch box was recently added to the exhibit.

In 2003, he began writing a series of children's novels with his partner, Lin Oliver, entitled, Hank Zipzer: The World's Greatest Under-Achiever. The books are inspired by Winkler's struggle throughout his education due to his learning challenges and have appeared on several Best Seller lists including The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times, among others.

In 2011, he published a collection of anecdotes and heartfelt observations I Never Met an Idiot on the River. The book is a collection of the lessons and photos Winkler gathered while fly fishing in Montana. Continuing his love for children's books, Winkler released the first installment of a new series in January 2012 entitled Ghost Buddy #1: Zero to Hero.

Henry Winkler executive produces and stars in NBC's celebrity adventure show Better Late Than Never, which premiered in 2016. Taking a note from The Amazing Race, Winkler, alongside Terry Bradshaw, William Shatner and George Foreman, trek across the world in search of new adventures and life-changing experiences in the critically acclaimed new reality series.

In 2018, Winkler will be featured alongside Bill Hader in HBO's Barry, about a hit man-turned-actor.

Audiences always leave Henry's presentations inspired and entertained. Through humorous anecdotes and inspirational life lessons about overcoming adversity to his storied career in television and entertainment, groups of all ages can learn from Henry's speeches. His passion for supporting others is the result of a lifetime struggle with undiagnosed dyslexia. Henry has worked tirelessly to bring awareness and support to children who learn differently by advocating for changes in the educational system and informing parents and teachers about learning challenges.
