In a very engaging and humorous presentation, Costas shares with audiences his insight into today’s current events and his experiences in the sports and broadcasting worlds. He is happy to take questions from the audience.

Very few things great are done alone. Epic achievement is almost always the result of successful and enduring collaboration. Jim explains and details the elements of winning teamwork. He provides specific examples from the experience of the U.S. “Miracle on Ice” hockey team, and how it confounded the experts, made history and made it to the top of the podium.

Playing U.S. President Mackenzie Allen in the critically acclaimed ABC series Commander in Chief was more than a television role for Geena Davis, one of the world’s best-known actors. An Academy Award-winner, film producer, accomplished athlete and role model, she truly believes that, with determination and focus, women can achieve virtually anything they set out to accomplish. She empowers audiences with her moving personal stories of how she broke into acting and her success at the highest levels in the traditionally male-dominated fields of Olympic archery and film production.

Using her skills as an archer—she ranked 13th in the U.S. in 2001—as a metaphor for achievement in life, Geena Davis shares her risk-taking, entrepreneurial spirit that has led her to the pinnacles of success as an actor and producer as well as a gifted athlete. She inspires audiences with her message of overcoming obstacles to success in athletes, in the arts and in life itself.

Dominique Dawes won Olympic gold. But, for her, success is so much more than medals and accolades: it’s something she worked hard to achieve everyday en route to Olympic glory. Today she shares her personal and professional philosophy with audiences across the country. Called “D-3”—Determination, Dedication, Desire—it’s what gave her the strength and confidence to handle the professional and personal challenges in her life, to persevere amidst defeat and triumph in victory. In emotionally uplifting presentations, Dawes shows audiences how to use D-3 to reformulate negative situations into positive ones and turn obstacles into victories—all while clearly demonstrating that success is a journey, not a destination.

ENVISION is Dawes' signature, most uplifting and captivating message. It is also the title of her motivational line of products. ENVISION is an acronym for the 8 principles that helped Dawes become successful in and out of the athletic arena. She crafts this speech specifically to motivate and empower the audience to envision greatness in their own lives. The core focuses are passion, plan and perseverance.

Building a solid foundation was one of the keys to Dawes' success. Her emphasis on a solid foundation touches on multiples areas: from healthy lifestyle choices to developing positive self-esteem where she addresses issues such as peer pressures, productive attitudes and values. The audience will walk away empowered, motivated, and, more importantly, clear on what it takes to build a strong foundation worthy of your dreams.

D-3 became Dawes' personal motto when she was an Olympic athlete in the making. Fatigue, frustration and loss of focus was common is such a perfectionist sport. D-3 kept Dawes focused on what was going to allow her to stay on the path to success. She paints a vivid picture of moments in the gymnastics arena where D-3 inspired her to persevere through setbacks and struggles, sacrifices and insecurities, en route to Olympic Gold. D-3 has become a staple in Dawes' athletic and professional accomplishments. She inspires audiences to develop their own personal motto that will help define and direct them in life too!

Every four years in the Olympic cycle, the surge of national interest in swimming grows, and with it a desire to be captivated by its stars. In this dazzling keynote, Ervin tells the dramatic, surprising, and sometimes provocative path that led him to become one of the most captivating Olympic heroes. Do not think of this as a typical keynote speech, but more a reflection of Ervin's restless, multifaceted life.
