Success: Nature Or Nurture? | TEDx

Success: Nature Or Nurture? | TEDx


Bill Clement claims that his greatest achievement was simply surviving 11 years in the National Hockey League with the Philadelphia Flyers, the Washington Capitals, and the Flames, both in Atlanta and Calgary. A closer look at his career, however, shows that he was on two Stanley Cup championship teams, served as a captain for an NHL team, and played in two NHL All-Star games. Since retiring as a player, Bill has become one of TV's top sports commentators and a top NHL analyst. He also wrote an autobiography entitled, EveryDay Leadership: Crossing Gorges on Tightropes to Success.

Although Bill has experienced a lot of success both on the ice and off the ice, he has also known the depths of emotional and financial ruin and shares his inspirational turnaround story and the important lessons learned at TEDx CapeMay 2013.
