Bill Rancic burst onto the national scene when he was hired by Donald Trump as the winner of the first season of NBC’s breakthrough program “The Apprentice”. Mr. Rancic currently travels the world, speaking to businesses on motivational and business topics, produces and appears on numerous television programs and develops real estate in Chicago. His innovative business style and high energy led the High Desert Opportunity Committee to choose Rancic as keynote speaker for the October 2015 event.
A published author of a New York Times best-selling book, Rancic wrote “You’re Hired: How to Succeed in Business and Life”. This book chronicles his successful life, experience and advice.
High Desert Opportunity is an annual business event that focuses on bringing site locators, commercial real estate brokers and business owners from outside the area to the High Desert to demonstrate the value of expanding or relocating their business or clients to our region.
