Why are they trending you might ask? Let the experts at Sports Speakers Bureau break down who’s hot and uncover why these Sports Speakers are making headlines.
Michael Strahan: To say sports speaker Michael has been busy since retiring from the NFL would be a huge understatement. From his work as a TV personality on Live! with Kelly and Michael and Good Morning America to FOX NFL Sunday and now a new acting role in the upcoming Magic Mike XXL film, it’s clear- Michael was born to entertain! There might not be a harder working guy in showbiz right now so his availability is somewhat limited, but sports speaker Michael would be a truly inspiring keynote speaker for any upcoming event.
Abby Wambach: Could the 7th time be the charm for U.S. Soccer’s leading lady? Abby is the running to claim her 7th, that’s right, 7th U.S. Soccer Female Athlete of the Year Award. Also nominated this year are teammates Carli Lloyd, Lauren Holiday, Sydney Leroux and Christen Press. Since her first action with the national team in 2001, sports speaker Abby has become known for her impressive skills but even better for the way she leads her teammates. Motivational sports speakers make great keynote speakers and Abby could be the perfect sports hero to inspire the audience at your next leadership conference.
Tim Duncan: He’s got NBA championships and MVP awards, but possibly the best attribute of sports speaker Tim Duncan is his big heart. This year the San Antonio Spurs future Hall of Famer donated $247,000 to fund the San Antonio 1000 Cancer Genome Project. Compared to some of the NBA pre-Madonnas of today, Tim has been a model ambassador for the league and this is a cause close to his heart after losing both his parents to cancer. It’s time for you to make the game winning play for your team and hire a sports speaker like Timmy D as a motivational speaker for your next event.
Michele Roberts: Since making history in July when she became the head of the NBPA, sports speaker Michele has wasted no time in making her presence felt. She has set out to remind the league and those associated with it that the players should be the center focus of the league and not the owners and their huge profit margins. Michele understands the value of her clients and is not afraid to fight for them and that is why she was the perfect hire for the players. As a strong female voice in the world of sports, consider hiring sports speaker Michele Roberts for your next corporate event or leadership conference.
Michael Sam: His professional football career is in its early stages, but Sports Speaker Michael and one of the coverboys for GQ’s Man of the Year issue has learned more about life in his short amount of time on this earth than many will ever have the chance to. From his abusive childhood to becoming the first openly gay player in the NFL, Michael Sam has become a man of forgiveness and thankfulness. Some members of the public might only have a narrow view of the road he has taken to get to the NFL, but hire Sports Speaker Michael and let him share with you his inspiring journey of triumph in the face of adversity.
Tim Tebow: He may not be an NFL quarterback, but he is really ridiculously good-looking according to People Magazine. The major publication announced Sports Speaker Tim to their 2014 Sexiest Men Alive list that also included fellow gridiron star turned Good Morning America co-host Michael Strahan. Tim has a new role as a contributor on Good Morning America himself while continuing to nurture children in need through his Tim Tebow Foundation. Tim is continuing to expand his career outside of the game of football and has become a popular keynote speaker for a variety of different functions and events.
Gabby Douglas: The story of her incredible performance at the 2012 Olympic Games and the inspirational journey that got her there has been told countless times in the 2 years since she competed, but it just doesn’t get old. It was announced last week that the United States’ most popular gymnast is officially back on the U.S. women’s gymnastics team as the they ready themselves for a number of international events in 2015. The clout surrounding sports speaker Gabby will be at an all-time high leading into the 2016 Olympic Games in the next year and this is the perfect time to hire her for a keynote speech or moderated Q&A.
Mike Ditka: Can you think of a better NFL personality to host a VIP Cigar Party at this year’s Super Bowl than Bears legendary coach Mike Ditka? Bravo to those responsible for that booking! Cigars With The Stars will allow VIP guests to chop it up with several NFL legends including coach Ditka and all proceeds from the event will go to Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund, Pro Football Legends and The Kevin Turner Foundation. While sports speaker Mike continues to line up a host of different endorsement opportunities, he is a highly sought after keynote speaker and celebrity guest for paid appearances.
Anthony Davis: Sure DNA results might come back negative, but NBA sensation Anthony Davis has got to be a distance descendent of the Monstars. He’s taken the league by storm in his first 3 years of action and is averaging the type of numbers that even the greatest of centers weren’t producing at such a young stage in their career. This month, the sports speaker appeared on the cover of the December issue of Sports Illustrated. Anthony has the opportunity to not only become one of the greatest to ever play, but to elevate himself as a positive role model for his fans and others.
Tim Howard: As if there was any doubt, the heart of the United States National team and the most popular player on the team Tim Howard was named this year’s U.S. Soccer Male Player of the Year. Soccer is gaining clout in the U.S. like never before while player’s like Tim and Clint Dempsey have welcomed new endorsement and sponsorship deals. Tim’s availability is packed with all his exciting new opportunities as well as his duties to play for Everton, but booking a sports speaker like Tim would be the perfect kickoff to any event.
