NBA Speaker

Mark has had many incred­i­ble cir­cum­stances occur in his life because of hard work and deter­mi­na­tion. One of those cir­cum­stances was a 12 year career in the NBA, dur­ing which he won NBA Defen­sive Play­er of the Year twice, and was named an NBA All-Star. His pas­sion for suc­cess has now has shift­ed from the court to the cor­po­rate world as a moti­va­tion­al NBA speak­er. He uses the tips and lessons he learned while play­ing in the NBA to help cor­po­ra­tions and lead­ers become more pros­per­ous.

The NBA bas­ket­ball court and your office share at least one cru­cial aspect: Team suc­cess is every­thing. As an NBA speak­er Mark takes the team skills he learned play­ing sports at the high­est lev­el and trans­lates them to the world of busi­ness.

These team skills are far reach­ing. For instance, one aspect of being a great team play­er is not to make excus­es. In order to do your job to the best of your abil­i­ties you have to make sure you elim­i­nate all pos­si­ble dis­trac­tions, espe­cial­ly excus­es. They are neg­a­tive obsta­cles that will bring you and your team down. This is some­thing Mark expounds upon as an NBA speak­er.

When he first entered the NBA, Mark was very hard on him­self and out­ward­ly showed it. His coach, Frank Lay­den, got very frus­trat­ed and told him, “Mark! No one cares about the last play. Just go make the next one!”  Mark said he was mak­ing excus­es and draw­ing him­self away from the job he had to do. He quick­ly learned the invalu­able les­son about why not mak­ing excus­es is so impor­tant and shares that now as an NBA speak­er.

Just as in the sto­ry above, Mark’s pro­gram as an NBA speak­er is wrapped around the sto­ries he accu­mu­lat­ed dur­ing his career as a pro­fes­sion­al bas­ket­ball play­er. You’ll hear about his unusu­al jour­ney from a twen­ty-one year old auto mechan­ic who could­n’t play bas­ket­ball to an NBA All-Star and record hold­er. He shares tales from through­out his col­lege and pro­fes­sion­al career while also teach­ing you and your team how to become more suc­cess­ful.

In his speech­es, Mark reveals the secrets of team­work to indi­vid­u­als and orga­ni­za­tions world­wide. He shares the prin­ci­ples and com­mit­ments he has lived and learned, and ulti­mate­ly what took his team TO THE TOP OF ONE OF THE MOST COMPETITIVE ARENAS IN THE WORLD! As an NBA speak­er Mark imparts his knowl­edge of suc­cess, bas­ket­ball and busi­ness and shows how all three of these top­ics con­nect with each oth­er. In order to hear more of Mark’s amaz­ing sto­ries and his rise to the top in the NBA and as an NBA speak­er call 800–998-7067 or email wecare@7ft4.com to book me for your next speak­ing event!
