Lance Armstrong Speaker Biography


In 1996, as one of the top ranked cyclists in the world, Lance Armstrong was diagnosed with advanced testicular cancer. With the help of his medical team, family and friends, Armstrong recovered and went on to win the Tour de France a record seven consecutive times, from 1999 to 2005.

Armstrong founded The Lance Armstrong Foundation after his diagnosis. The LAF became LIVESTRONG and to date, it has raised more than $500 million for the fight against cancer. He has five children and splits his time between Austin, Texas and Aspen, Colorado. Armstrong is the founder and managing partner of Next Ventures. NEXT VENTŪRES is a new venture capital firm designed to maximize growth opportunities in the exploding sports, fitness, nutrition and wellness markets.

A globally known cyclist and endurance athlete, Lance remains passionate about the benefits of an active lifestyle. Through his decades of competitive racing, Lance has developed extensive worldwide contacts in the sports, fitness and health markets, regularly being invited to review early stage companies. His extensive connections have resulted in highly successful early investments in Docusign and Uber that reflect his strong investment insights. In this digital age Lance understands the importance of digital brand building and the power of influencers.

Lance currently hosts THEMOVE, a podcast that provides analysis of stages of the Tour de France and other cycling and endurance races; this podcast has had millions of downloads and has been ranked in the top 10 in the sports and recreation category on Apple’s iTunes. He also hosts a podcast called THE FORWARD where Armstrong interviews authors, musicians, athletes, politicians and influencers from all walks of life. These form the cornerstones of WEDŪ MEDIA, part of his WEDŪ brand, a budding community of endurance athletes who go Forward, Never Straight.

FROM HERO TO ZERO TO HUMAN: HOW TO BOUNCE BACK FROM BIG MISTAKES
How do you come back from your biggest mistakes? When confronted with losing everything, some people give up—while others use those setbacks as inspiration to reach new goals. In cycling, Lance Armstrong was the “comeback king” when he overcame testicular cancer to win the Tour de France seven times. In the process, he became one of the most well-known athletes in the world. However, his biggest comeback was not athletic but personal when he came back from the doping scandal that stripped him of his Tour de France titles. After going from hero to zero, he worked hard to take responsibility for his mistakes, learn from them, and rise again with his new podcasts and organization WEDU. In this revealing talk, Lance tells stories from his career and shares what it takes to come back from your mistakes. Audiences will learn that you need to be honest, vulnerable, and stay positive in order to come back even stronger than before.

WINNING AT ALL COSTS IS NOT TRUE LEADERSHIP
The key to leading a team is honesty. While Lance was doing all the right things to win as a team —working hard, good tactics, great teammates—he was doing the worst thing you can do as a leader: lying. He lied to himself, his team, and his supporters. His win-at-all-costs mentality eventually lost him his cycling titles and resulted in his banishment from the sport. He learned how the decisions you make as a leader can have an impact on everyone—from your team to your fans to your family. In this brutally honest talk, Lance shares what he learned about himself, winning, and leadership as he had to confront his wrongdoing. Audiences will come away with what it takes to lead and work as a team: communication, persistence, and most of all honesty.

CORPORATE ATHLETE
How do you become—and stay—resilient in your body and mind? Lance Armstrong became one of the best-known athletes in the world for his hard work and mental strength as a cyclist. He learned from the best coaches and athletes how to stay healthy and mentally strong. While today Lance no longer competes and is just happy to finish a race, he still practices what he learned as a professional athlete to stay fit. In this candid talk by Lance, audiences will come away with world-class coaching on how to train effectively, improve their health, stay mentally strong, and maintain their fitness throughout life.

FIRESIDE CHAT
In those no-holds-barred, no questions off-limits fireside chat, Lance Armstrong will answer anything audiences want to know about his entire career. Interviewers can go deep on any topic. You can learn how Lance overcame cancer, his time as a professional cyclist, his experience with the Livestrong charity, his banishment from the sport, and his new activities as podcast host of The Move and The Forward or his Next Ventures investing.

Lance also talks about redemption and reinvention and now is a successful advisor and investor in health care start-ups. Embracing his past mistakes with an endurance athlete’s tenacious mindset of powering through pain, challenges, and adversity; Armstrong’s inspirational talks champion resilience, integrity, leadership, and the ability we all have to overcome challenges and rise up from defeat.
