LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the seventh annual Agent Summit have announced that motivational speaker and former NBA player Walter Bond will deliver the opening keynote address on Tuesday, May 23. The four-day event begins Sunday, May 21, 2017, at Paris Las Vegas.
Undrafted after what he describes as an “average” college basketball career at the University of Minnesota, Bond clawed his way onto the rosters of three NBA teams after adopting a tireless work ethic and a “peak performance mindset.”
Bond parlayed that mindset into a second career as a professional leadership coach and motivational speaker. His list of current and past clients includes Fidelity Investments, Hilton Hotels, Lincoln Financial, Wells Fargo and Zurich.
“Walter Bond is the ultimate entrepreneur, a self-made man who made it to the highest level of professional sports through sheer force of will,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Agent Entrepreneur. “He comes highly recommended, and I can’t wait to see him take over the Agent Summit stage.”
