NBA Speaker

Mark has had many incred­i­ble things hap­pen in his life because of hard work and deter­mi­na­tion. One of those  was a 12-year career in the NBA, dur­ing which he won NBA Defen­sive Play­er of the Year twice. And don’t for­get that he was named an NBA All-Star! Mark has now shift­ed his pas­sion for suc­cess 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 and trans­lates them to the world of business.

No Excuses

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 elim­i­nate all pos­si­ble dis­trac­tions, espe­cial­ly excus­es. They are neg­a­tive obsta­cles that will bring down both you and your team.

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.

Mark’s pro­gram as an NBA speak­er is wrapped around sto­ries like that. You’ll hear about his unusu­al jour­ney from a 21-year-old auto mechan­ic who couldn’t play bas­ket­ball to an NBA All-Star. He shares tales from through­out his col­lege and pro­fes­sion­al careers while also teach­ing you and your team to be more successful.

Speaking to Your Team

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. Those lessons are 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.
