)-- Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, business expert and former NBA player Walter Bond, and motivational speaker Ken Blanchard will take center stage at the host site in Indianapolis on Wednesday, May 18, to inspire and motivate business leaders nationwide during the 2011 Refresh Leadership Live Simulcast, sponsored by Express Employment Professionals.
The Refresh Leadership Live Simulcast is designed to motivate business leaders, as well as educate and inspire future generations of leaders.
“The measure of success for any great leader is their ability to inspire those they lead. It's a tremendous responsibility and one that should never be taken lightly,” said Robert A. Funk, CEO and chairman of the board for Express Employment Professionals, one of the nation’s largest privately-held staffing companies. “The speakers for Refresh Leadership Live were chosen for their unique and proven ability to lead and motivate a team.”
Manning will challenge leaders on “Victory through Teamwork and Leadership.” He will share some of the insights he has learned over the years about leadership, teamwork, and success – both on and off the football field. Manning led the Indianapolis Colts to victory in Super Bowl XLI and is the NFL’s only four-time most valuable player.
Blanchard will discuss “Leading in the New Business Reality.” He will focus on the challenges leaders face in an ever-changing marketplace, while sharing valuable tips on keeping people focused, productive and motivated. Blanchard is an author, speaker and business consultant. He has authored and co-authored nearly 40 books. His well-known favorite, The One Minute Manager, is still on the best-seller lists 25 years after its release.
Known as “Mr. Accountability,” Bond will share powerful insights on how to build healthy confidence and become a peak performer as he speaks on “Attitude: The Winning Edge.” Bond is a business expert, broadcaster, and former NBA player for the Utah Jazz, Detroit Pistons and Dallas Mavericks. His personal credo, No one can stop you but you, encapsulates a message of hope, resiliency and positive change.
