I really connected with what Ashley had to share. She talked about one way, one team, how she approaches her life and how she conducted herself in the newsroom with her stories and on the air. It really resonated for me in a way where I can rethink how I approach situations in life and how I approach situations at work, and it gives me a really inspirational story to share with my daughter. -Todd Gustafson, President Hewlett Packard Federal and Head of US Public Sector

Ashley Fox’ ease and poise as a host for our Bears Club Annual dinner was the “ticket” to success. Ashley’s thorough preparation was obvious as her questions were on-point and primed our guest coaches for thoughtful response.

Motivate Like A Pro

Professional athletes by nature are some of the most highly motivated people on the planet. But developing high-performing individuals into a cohesive, championship team takes skill, consistency and patience. In the National Football League, there is on average a 22-percent annual turnover rate among head coaches. Time, therefore, is of the essence. In this illustrative keynote, Ashley shares stories from her experience as one of the only female on-air NFL analysts at ESPN and what she has learned from NFL coaches about how to extract peak performance through motivation.

You will learn how to:

Inspire through incentives
Lead by example
Delegate to empower
Communicate to engender trust
Prioritize the minutiae

Three, Two , One — Jump!

Fear can be paralyzing. It can be debilitating. It can cause immense anxiety. We fear the unknown. We fear the future. We fear failure. How do we overcome it? In this highly personal keynote, Ashley explains her experience suffering three significant life-altering events – losing her marriage, her dream job and her father – in a 22-month span and how she refused to give up by uttering four simple words.

You will learn how to:

Overcome fear by taking three breaths and then jumping in
Find your resiliency within
Be courageous
Set and achieve goals
Never give up
