Athlete Speaker

Being a pro­fes­sion­al ath­lete for over ten years pro­vid­ed Mark with many lessons includ­ing coop­er­a­tion, team build­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tion. As an ath­lete speak­er he relates inter­est­ing bas­ket­ball sto­ries that direct­ly cor­re­late to busi­ness prac­tices.

The lessons passed on to him through coach­es, team­mates and expe­ri­ences now serve him in the pro­fes­sion­al speak­ing are­na. He shares what he was taught with indi­vid­u­als, busi­ness lead­ers and teams who want to be more suc­cess­ful.

What would it be like if you came to work and there was no inter­nal com­pe­ti­tion …none? On the bas­ket­ball court this was cru­cial and Mark learned how to work har­mo­nious­ly with oth­ers.  In sports, and busi­ness, team­work is not a lux­u­ry, it is is nec­es­sary for last­ing suc­cess.

As an ath­lete speak­er at 7ft4.com, Mark takes his affin­i­ty for coop­er­a­tion and trans­fers it to the world of busi­ness lead­er­ship and man­age­ment. Imag­ine com­ing to the office to find your team work­ing togeth­er with no inter­nal com­pe­ti­tion. Sound amaz­ing? Using his skills as a speak­er and expe­ri­ences as an ath­lete, Mark will show you how to make that dream a real­i­ty.

Team­build­ing. Mark wasn’t in the front office, mak­ing deci­sions on which bas­ket­ball play­ers to bring in or trade, how­ev­er, he did gain knowl­edge on how to assem­ble a win­ning team. He shares that knowl­edge with you and your team in his Four Com­mit­ments of a Win­ning Team speech.

In a team set­ting, it is impor­tant to assem­ble a group of peo­ple who have a com­mon goal. It is also impor­tant to under­stand what dri­ves your team and how to com­mu­ni­cate with them. A team is a group of peo­ple com­mit­ted to each oth­er. Mark teach­es you how to get your team per­form­ing at the high­est lev­el in his team­build­ing pro­gram as an ath­lete speak­er.

Learn­ing how mem­bers of your team oper­ate is cru­cial to your over­all suc­cess.  You will find exam­ples through­out this web­site which show com­mu­ni­ca­tion and team­work are two char­ac­ter­is­tics Mark has dis­cov­ered fol­low suc­cess­ful teams.

After he retired from the NBA, Mark took the lessons he had learned as a pro­fes­sion­al ath­lete and become an ath­lete speak­er to share his sto­ries with indi­vid­u­als, cor­po­ra­tions and their lead­ers. His incred­i­ble sto­ry being a 21 year old auto mechan­ic who didn’t play bas­ket­ball to becom­ing an NBA All-Star, shows oth­ers how to make their teams more suc­cess­ful and pros­per­ous.

As an ath­lete speak­er Mark has seen that these com­mit­ments are fun­da­men­tal in cre­at­ing a win­ning envi­ron­ment. He will coach you on how to max­i­mize your team’s poten­tial and devel­op a game plan to turn every mem­ber of your team into a peak per­former.
