Brian France Speaking FeeThe NASCAR CEO and chairman Brian France spoke to high school and college students at the Detroit Economic Club during a luncheon on March 20. The tell-all speech by the top businessman answered some tough questions for his audience, but in the end was able to show how resilience is the key to true success. France was very open about his many successes and failures during his 12 year career as the CEO of NASCAR, and readily explained how even the most popular and famous of companies experience hardships from time to time. In addition to that, he touched on a array of topics for the students during his talk such as NASCAR’s diversity initiatives, the company’s growth, safety standards, and the retirement of big time racer Jeff Gordon who is racing for his last season this year.

In 2003 France took the position as the head of NASCAR after his father, Bill France Jr., stepped down from the job. It was noted in Time Magazine that Brian France was in their list of “100 Most Influential of the Century” in recognition of his involvement in one of the most recognized sports brands around the world. He has already accomplished a lot during his time in the position such as allowing Toyota vehicles to race in the NASCAR circuit and creating the Chase for the Sprint Cup which he got a $4.5 billion deal with NBC for a 10 season contract.

Students who listened to France’s speech were given a great opportunity to learn about being in charge of a company that big, and were informed that everyone in the world makes huge mistakes over the course of time but having resilience can always be a great asset to getting out of trouble.

Since March Madness is upon us, people are paying lots of attention to the big college basketball event that goes on each year. Using that theme, the restaurant chain has decided to incorporate the two sports figures into the show to give the advertisement a fun “madness” theme.

In 2003 he authored his first book about his experiences as a camp counselor, and his second book in 2009 about March Madness.

Smith was born in Queens, New York and played college basketball for North Carolina before joining the NBA in 1987 when he was drafted to the Sacramento Kings. He played for a number of franchises including the Atlanta Hawks, Houston Rockets, Detroit Pistons, Orlando Magic and Denver Nuggets before retiring in 1997 and joining Turner Sports broadcasting in 1998.

jim abbott speaking feeFormer MLB star Jim Abbott traveled to Flint, MI to promote childhood literacy on March 19, where he took the time to read to the kids on site and worked with the United Way of Genesee County to make this special event successful. Abbott traveled all around the town, which happens to also be his hometown, and gave numerous talks to get children at the grade-level enthusiastic about reading. He started out the day by giving a press conference talk at the General Motors location nearby at around 9:30am, and then went on to make a few hospital visits to interact with the children who are staying there. In addition to that, he visited the maternity ward and talked to many of the families who were inside the centers.

Abbott was born without a right hand, but that didn’t stop him from pursuing a sports career that many would think impossible with such a handicap. He took on the role as a pitcher and found that he was very good at it, and went on to play with the California Angels in 1989 to 1992. From there he did seven more years in the MLB with teams such as the New York Yankees, Chicago White Sox, and Milwaukee Brewers until he retired in 1999. One of his highest moments playing baseball was on September 4, 1993 when he pitched a no-hitter game. Prior to joining the big leagues he also played for his university, Michigan, who inducted him into their hall of fame in 2007.

The retired pitcher was happy to return home to see friends and family, and to inspire the children of the town to read more books and work hard in school.

Kriste Lewis Speaking FeeSaintsation Kriste Lewis was a guest speaker at the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation’s Leadership Conference which was attended by over 100 people including representatives from each state and from Canada as well. Kriste’s goal was to bring awareness to the audience about the extreme dangers of kidney disease which is the cause of over 90,000 deaths each year in the United States, a larger amount than both breast and prostate cancer put together. When Kriste was diagnosed with the disease 15 years ago she felt that it was her duty to spread the word so that other people would be able to catch it in time to discuss options with a medical professional.

Saintsation Kriste (whose real name is Kriste Lewis) is one of the NFL cheerleaders for the New Orleans Saints. Since she has been going around and creating awareness on the matter, she has commented that many people suffering from similar issues and on dialysis have come up to her during the games and thank her for being so active in the kidney community. Fans of hers take comfort in knowing that someone in the spotlight is using their fame for a good purpose, and hopefully she will continue to recruit new listeners as she attends for events. In fact, she has also been invited to promote kidney disease awareness at the National Convention in June 2016 in Orlando, Florida.

Overall, her speech was a big success and it can be easily assumed that Kriste felt good about getting to speak to so many representatives who have the power to do something about it in their state and region.
