Motivational Speaker

There is no hid­ing Mark Eaton’s height and pres­ence when he enters a room. At sev­en feet four inch­es tall most peo­ple nat­u­ral­ly assume he played bas­ket­ball. What many don’t know is that Mark only played 3 min­utes in his entire high school bas­ket­ball career. He hat­ed bas­ket­ball. As a moti­va­tion­al  speak­er, Mark talks about how he made an unusu­al jour­ney. He was a 21-year-old auto mechan­ic who couldn’t play bas­ket­ball who became an NBA All-Star.

Some know peo­ple know Mark was named NBA defen­sive play­er of the year (twice!) and a for­mer NBA All-Star. Most prob­a­bly don’t know that after high school Mark want­ed noth­ing to do with bas­ket­ball what­so­ev­er. Being a moti­va­tion­al speak­er allows Mark to share his per­son­al sto­ry of growth and commitment .

Success is a Commitment

Look­ing back, Mark says he nev­er would have dreamed he would go from nev­er want­i­ng to see anoth­er bas­ket­ball to becom­ing an All-Star. He attrib­ut­es his per­son­al suc­cess to com­mit­ment, pas­sion for hard work, com­mu­ni­ca­tion, and team suc­cess. These char­ac­ter­is­tics and more are what helped Mark achieve high goals both as an ath­lete and as a moti­va­tion­al speak­er. These are also some of the top­ics he shares in his inspir­ing talks and break­out ses­sions.

In pro­fes­sion­al ath­let­ics, the most pros­per­ous ath­letes are the ones who are in the gym before the lights turn on and who refuse to leave before the job is done. 

In the world of sports that job is to improve at your craft. As a moti­va­tion­al speak­er, it is Mark’s job to show cor­po­rate teams that this same prin­ci­ple applies to the board­room and the office.

The work­place may be dif­fer­ent but the prin­ci­ples still apply. Few things look bet­ter to a boss than an employ­ee who works longer and hard­er than the bare min­i­mum. Being a moti­va­tion­al speak­er allows Mark to spread this prin­ci­ple to cor­po­ra­tions and their influ­en­tial members.

Speaking to Your Team

The prin­ci­ple of hard work is what helped Mark achieve the high­est lev­el of pros­per­i­ty his NBA and speak­ing careers. While sit­ting at the end of the bench at UCLA, Mark con­tin­ued to work on his skills every day. When the time was right, he was skilled enough to try out for the NBA.

As a moti­va­tion­al speak­er, he works around the clock to keep his speak­ing skills honed at all times. These skills allow him to teach oth­ers how to:

  • con­sis­tent­ly play at the top of their game,
  • how to build the trust and loyalty,
  • and the secret to estab­lish­ing an inspir­ing, ener­giz­ing, and har­mo­nious work environment.
