    Join us for a lovely luncheon with renowned acting coach and success life trainer & author Bernard Hiller. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, he lived in Germany and then moved to New York City as a young man. He attended the High School for Performing Arts and studied at the prestigious Alvin Ailey Dance Studio.

    He started his career as an actor, singer and dancer and performed in six Broadway musicals and touring companies including Grease. He was also the lead in the touring company of West Side Story throughout European Opera houses. His vast film and television credits include work alongside George Clooney, Anne Hathaway and Michelle Pfeiffer. Most recently, he was in Amazon’s Hunters and HBO’s Euphoria.

    After years of experience and coaching actors on TV and film sets, Bernard developed his own revolutionary film acting and success methods for the artistic and business worlds and is a sought after international transformational teacher and coach for performers, athletes and business executives. Bernard trains some of the top artists in Hollywood and has started the careers of many well-known television and film actors around the world including Cameron Diaz among others. He coached Jeff Goldblum, Lindsay Lohan, Shira Haas, Evan Peters, LL Cool J, Jamie Dornan, Vanessa Hudgens, Milena Smit,  Suki Waterhouse, Fernando Cayo, A.R. Rahman, Emma Roberts, Lionel Richie, Billy Crystal, Michael Bolton, Emilio Rivera, and Chace Crawford.

    He is honored to have the support of his work from Samuel L Jackson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Deepak Chopra, and many others. His sold-out acting Masterclasses are held all over the world and he has taught in over 26 countries to date. Al Pacino, Peter Farrelly, Bruce Dern, and Bryan Cranston - amongst many others - have spoken at his Masterclasses as well as over 66 Academy Award winners and nominees. In addition, Bernard has also trained opera singers in Los Angeles, New York, London, and Venice, as well as sports and business leaders around the country. Bernard has written about his acting and coaching techniques for various magazines and outlets including The Huffington Post and is a sought after expert on predicting winners for the Academy Awards. He has also been a jury member at many film festivals around the world. Bernard held a special workshop, in Tel Aviv, at the Shimon Peres Peace Center for Palestinians and Israelis and he works with C.E.O.s and Fortune 500 companies around the globe.  His Dynamic Public Speaking techniques teach people how to discover their star quality inside themselves and become transformational communicators.

    Companies that have worked with his “behavior transformation” methods have seen unprecedented results. His book “Stop Acting-Start Living” has been translated into several languages. His second book “The Revolutionary Guide to Acting: A Transformational Journey to Achieving Success in Show Business” was just published August 30, 2022 by Matt Holt Books, an imprint of BenBella Books, Inc. and is distributed by Penguin Random House.
