The Game of Life (Keynote Speaker: Dick Vitale)
Sponsored by Ergon 

Perhaps no one understands the game of life — and particularly how to play it with enthusiasm, energy and verve — than the inimitable Dick Vitale. Vitale will share his secrets for tackling the problems of life head-on, the lessons he’s learned from sports and how to apply them to business and daily life. ILMA members will appreciate the combination of humor and inspiration drawn from his career as a sixth grade teacher, a college and professional basketball coach, and years as one of the best known — and perhaps most beloved — network TV basketball analysts in history.

 

One of America’s most beloved sports personalities, Vitale exudes optimism and a boundless passion for consistently giving 110% — qualities that put him on the path towards coaching and broadcasting success. For Vitale, winning the game of life begins with a can-do attitude that he inspires in audiences, motivating them toward achieving their individual and organizational goals by applying lessons from the sports world. 

 

Known for calling nearly 1,000 basketball games for ESPN, Vitale is a true American icon recognized for his catchy “Vitale-isms” as well as for his tireless work for the V Foundation (named for the late NCAA coach Jim Valvano), an organization dedicated to curing cancer.
