We represent candid, funny, and inspiring speakers from the buzzing and high-energy world of sports who captivate audiences while imparting serious wisdom and insight about leadership, marketing and sales, and getting ahead.

Bill Rasmussen

Founder of ESPN

ESPN founder, Bill Rasmussen, draws on his humorous and relaxed speaking style to take audiences back to 1978 when an all-sports network was just a fledgling idea. With an honest look at the creation of a major global brand, Bill calls upon his audiences to be better leaders, more effective risk takers, and more entrepreneurial business people by avoiding complacency at all costs.

Molly Fletcher

Pioneering Female Sports Agent & CEO

Called the “female Jerry Maguire” by CNN, Molly Fletcher is an incredibly personable and inspiring sports agent and CEO who paved the way for women in her field. Fletcher’s speeches are tailored and offer behind-the-scenes intel on making connections with clients—including her confidence-driven, trademark sales advice to “behave as if you already have the business.” See more on Molly Fletcher here.

Susan O’Malley

Former President of the Washington Capitals and the Washington Wizards & First Female President of a Professional Sports Franchise

Susan O'Malley was the first female president of a professional sports franchise and one of our most-popular motivational speakers. She over saw the largest ticket revenue increase in the history of NBA franchises. Now a business professor, she shares hilarious and upbeat anecdotes and lessons learned from a life of unprecedented success. See more on Susan O’Malley here.

Sarah Robb O’Hagan

CEO of Flywheel Sports, Former Global President of Gatorade, & Former GM at Nike

Sarah Robb O'Hagan, the CEO of Flywheel Sports, former global president of Gatorade, and former GM and marketing director at Nike, is a rock-star who fires up audiences with the tactics she used at Gatorade and Nike to reinvent tired lines of business and expand market share. A unique combination of motivational speaker and practical business advice, Sarah pairs stories about reinventing products (putting Apple sensors in Nike+ shoes, for example) with personal anecdotes of her successes and failures (she talks about being fired and how it taught her to be bold). She’s high-energy and NICE—whether meeting your CEO or an audience member, Sarah is personable, easy to work with, and goes out of her way to connect. See more on Sarah Robb O’Hagan here.
