Keynote Presentation

What Great Coaches Taught Me About Leadership Presenter: Bill Walton Basketball Legend, ESPN Broadcaster, Humanitarian & Survivor
Basketball icon Bill Walton was part of legendary college and NBA championship teams: UCLA, the Boston Celtics and Portland Trail Blazers. He was also part of the last place San Diego Clippers. As Bill learned, and will share with you, the difference between winning and losing is leadership. The best coaches knew how to get the best out of their players. In Bill’s career no one was better than legendary UCLA coach John Wooden. He never talked about winning – and rarely even mentioned the opposing team. But Wooden did insist that players work together, not be selfish, execute flawlessly, and be accountable for doing their best.

Bill, the consummate storyteller, shares tales that are as insightful as they are entertaining – about lessons of leadership he learned from John Wooden, Red Auerbach, Jack Ramsey, and others during his storied career. Bill provides an inside look at how world-class performance is really achieved on the basketball court – sharing leadership and teamwork lessons based on principles that transfer off the court and into your business, too.

As contractors, we face countless challenges operating the day-to-day business. One of the primary challenges, and primary factors driving success, is an ability to help develop a team of leaders and managers to carry the workflow the way the company wants it to be delivered.

In this dynamic question and answer session, three of the industry’s brightest minds share established strategies and best practices for developing a mid-managerial team to scale a company. Join us for a spirited, fun, enthusiastic session discussing the ideas a company can implement and focus on to find, develop, and inspire the next generation of managerial talent to scale and grow.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How to identify the talent and team members who can get your busines to the next level
  • Anything else you want to know – live questions will be taken!

Bill Walton
Basketball Legend, ESPN Broadcaster, Humanitarian & Survivor
A basketball superstar and member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, Bill Walton made sports history playing for UCLA when he led the team to two NCAA championships and a record 88-game winning streak. Walton played under the famed tutelage of John Wooden, who coached “character” and “giving your best” first and before winning—lessons that guided Walton throughout his career.

Following a celebrated college basketball career, Walton went on to have a Hall of Fame NBA career, playing on two championship teams—the Portland Trail Blazers and the Boston Celtics—and earning numerous honors and awards, including citations for his humanitarian and leadership contributors. After basketball, Walton pursued his dream job as a sports broadcaster, but first had to overcome his lifelong stuttering affliction. Then in 2008, Walton endured risky back surgery to repair damage done early in his basketball career—through it all, Walton’s determination carried him through.

Now an Emmy Award-winning basketball analyst, Walton has appeared on a range of television networks including CBS Sports, NBC, ABC, ESPN, FOX and MSNBC, and has contributed to major events including the 1996 Atlanta and 2000 Sydney Summer Olympic Games. In 2009 he was named one of the top 50 sports broadcasters of all time by the American Sportscasters Association.

The author of Nothing But Net, Walton’s memoir, Back from the Dead reveals his inspiring story of a sports and cultural icon through devastating injuries and amazing recoveries.

Expertly merging comic narratives with valuable lessons on leadership and practical steps toward defining and achieving one’s own version of success, Walton inspires audiences to reach their goals through dedication, perseverance, flexibility and teamwork.
