Professional 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, 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.
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 that communication and teamwork are two characteristics Mark has discovered follow successful teams.
Speaking to Your Team
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.
