A real-life account of how Greg Gadson helped build an organization from scratch, and through his personal leadership style, inspired the soldiers that ultimately saved his life.

How the lessons of an athlete translate to life lessons in the service and in organizations of all sizes and missions. Greg Gadson illustrates the importance of developing and maintaining a culture of excellence through an ethos of personal accountable, fostering consistent organizational habits and working as a team to achieve great results.

Overcoming adversity implies we have come through some difficulties and everything turned out okay. We are looking at adversity as a negative. However, prevailing through the challenge means we look at the adversity as a positive. A purposeful challenge meant for us to learn and grow from, not just overcome, but to prevail—coming out better than we were before. Greg Gadson shares how his challenges have led him to the unexpected: winning two Super Bowl rings, acting in a movie and just taking on life’s challenges.

As the son of parents raised in the segregated South, Greg Gadson understands and appreciates the importance of diversity and inclusion on multiple levels. His unique perspectives on the challenges based on race and disability can add significant value to an organization seeking to improve their diversity.

Think about what you learned in school: The Pythagorean theorem. The Gettysburg Address. Music. Art. These are important things to learn about; however, sometimes we’re taught them in lieu of a subject central to everything we do – money. In their most frequently requested speech, David and Tom Gardner take the audience through a list of simple financial lessons to fix the bad habits (credit-card debt; managed mutual funds) and begin the good (investing for our future). Along the way, they put the financial world in its proper context, explain the at times confusing terminology of the financial world and give audiences the confidence and clarity to make good, sound investment choices.

Not only are David and Tom Gardner media entrepreneurs who created an extraordinary service and a formidable business with The Motley Fool, but they’ve also been students of the game of business, following the corporate world like sports fanatics. In building the Motley Fool, they have created a business and a workplace that are the envy of employers everywhere—including recognition such as being named one of the “Top 10 Best Places to Work” by Washington Business Journal and the #1 “Media Business to Work For” by Business Insider beating out ESPN, Disney and Turner Broadcasting. Their passion for business trends and for being creating a workplace that people are proud of combined with the brothers' distinct ability to deliver the obscure and esoteric in a friendly, easy-to understand manner makes for an informative and entertaining presentation on almost any business topic specifically suited to your organization.

Who’s teaching our kids about money? Though our high school graduates enter a world where job searches, salaries, expenses and an extraordinary array of personal finance decisions—both dangerous and opportune—await, very few of this nation’s high schools or universities offers even basic lessons on saving, investing, or planning for the future. 
As educators, The Motley Fool co-founders feel there are some things young adults should know about investing and finance. Experienced speaking to both student and parent audiences, they have put together a humorous and engaging speech, based on their successful book, The Motley Fool Investment Guide for Teens. Some of the practical advice they’ll share:

  • Money equals opportunity
  • Every dollar spent is an investment 
  • You don’t need to be rich to get into—or succeed at—investing 
  • You have more money to invest than you think

The Motley Fool will deliver the know-how young adults need to become more sophisticated investors, financial planners – and spenders.

Before settling on a stock investment to add to his portfolio, Tom Gardner investigates up to a hundred companies. Why? Because he’s seeking out the market's “Hidden Gems”: companies valued at less than $2 billion that, for a variety of reasons, isn't on Wall Street's radar screen, companies that big institutional money managers cannot yet invest in. Tom Gardner believes that hard work correlates well with sustained outperforming of the market, and that the probability for excellent returns rises based on the number of investment prospects you can regularly evaluate and eliminate. In this presentation, Tom Gardner shows investors how focusing on the undiscovered, undervalued companies generating heaps of free cashflow to mine profit where Wall Street can't.
