Sports Speakers

Anyone who has watched a sports game, a championship match, or an Olympic meet knows athletes and athletic professionals are some of the most determined people in the world. Whether they are working as a team to achieve a common goal or pushing themselves to their absolute limits, athletes take dedication and commitment to a new level. 

How Sports Legends Can Inspire Your Team

If you want to move your team with the kind of inspiration that wins championships, choose a coach who led a team to a title. Brian Billick, a former National Football League Super Bowl-winning head coach, will bring your team together to think as a “we” in an environment that promotes the individual. He takes his lessons in competitive leadership and applies them to the business world and corporate teams all over the world. 

Looking for someone to motivate your team beyond what most think is possible? Tim Grover, the former trainer of Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, and other elite athletes, knows how to motivate others to achieve greatness. Grover’s approach to instilling resilient motivation moves away from the cliches that create mediocrity and pushes his athletes and audiences to embrace reality with a single-minded intensity. His keynote speaking will help your team assess themselves and any situation with a mindset of pure determination. 

Maybe it’s the big name you want and all the legendary stories that come with it. National Basketball Association legend, Earvin “Magic” Johnson, opens up about his life as the number one pick of the 1979 NBA draft to battling HIV and all its stigmas to starting his own non-profit — the Magic Johnson Foundation. He shares his stories and the lessons he learned through them to help your team grow stronger. 

Or maybe you prefer a science-driven approach to winning. Dr. Jen Welter, the first female coach in the National Football League, uses her background in sports psychology to break down the psychology of winning to cultivate a championship mindset. Her keynote speaking will inspire while providing tactical methods for your team to implement after the keynote is long over. 

Hire a Sports Motivational Speaker

Whether you are looking for a keynote sports celebrity, a panel participant, or a motivational presentation on how the lessons learned on the playing field can impact your corporate bottom line, Executive Speakers Bureau is your first stop for finding the most talented sports speakers.
