Soccer Analyst, Sports Leadership Expert, & Past Olympian: Angela Hucles Gives Exclusive Interview

Soccer, or fútbol as it is known in some nations, is arguably the most popular sport in the world. The game has been cultivating superstars for centuries for the world to see. As a result of soccer’s massive and dedicated following, men’s soccer was added to the Olympic Games in 1900 with women’s soccer being added in 1996.

hucles-angela_4129

Midfielder Angela Hucles, was a standout player on the United States Women’s National Team, which won her two gold medals in 2004 and 2008. Even during that highly competitive time, she developed a passion for helping others achieve their “goals!”

Hucles later founded an organization focused on discovering sports leadership skills and athlete transitions that translate to life success.

Today she has become an excellent speaker on leadership, and overcoming adversity!

Hucles answered questions on “equal pay for equal play” in men’s and women’s professional sports, soccer popularity in the United States and internationally, and why bullying is a serious issue to herself and others:

 

1. Where do you stand on “equal pay for equal play?”

“While it might take some time, we are still fighting the good fight to get to equality.”

2. Why do you feel soccer players and fans do not translate into professional soccer viewership?

“We have had so many other sports in our country; baseball, basketball, football, that have taken precedence in terms of viewership. It’s going to take some time for soccer to translate from the world’s greatest most popular sport into viewers watching the sport, especially United States viewers.” 

3. What is the significance of bullying as a speaking topic?

“Bullying is one of those things that prevent people from feeling empowered. While nothing has specifically happened to me growing up in terms of bullying, I still can feel and understand. It still resonates with me when I hear cases of people being bullied.”

ESPN Broadcaster, Speaker & Past Olympian Jessica Mendoza Gives Exclusive Interview

The 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil will be watched on millions of televisions across America. The world’s most athletic men and women will display their skills while competing for gold medals in numerous events.

276188From 1996-2008, softball was one of the most popular events the Olympics had to offer. One amazing player from that era, was its star outfielder, Jessica Mendoza, who helped Team USA win the gold medal in 2004 and a silver medal in 2008.

Today, Jessica is an ESPN sports broadcaster widely known for being the first female MLB Analyst in postseason history! She also continues to inspire both adults and children as a keynote speaker showing them how to work as a team, and “begin with the end in mind.”

 

Recently, Mendoza took time to answer questions about female barriers in professional baseball, softball and baseball in the Olympics, and her transition from athlete to keynote speaker:

 

1. What barriers do you see being broken by women in baseball?

“I think the first and the next barrier that is going to get broken is the front office, that General Manager/Vice President role that we are seeing in each baseball organization. There is going to be another powerful female.”

2. Do you see softball and baseball returning to the Olympic Games?

“It’s coming back in 2020 in Tokyo. I have a strong belief that in 2024, if Los Angeles gets that bid to host the Olympic Games, softball and baseball will be in those Olympics as well.”

3. How did you transition into public speaking?

“I just wanted to share my message as a Hispanic athlete to get out there and talk about my own upbringing and a lot of the challenges that I faced.”

Past Olympic Gymnast & Keynote Speaker Peter Vidmar Still Knows How to Pleases A Crowd!

Peter Vidmar, keynote speaker, legendary gymnast, and Olympic gold medalist is used to being the center of attention on the world’s biggest stages for over 20 years! As the highest scoring American gymnast in Olympic history, Vidmar is an expert on leadership and doing whatever it takes to be victorious.

vidhomepic-1

After accumulating numerous national and international titles, his performance in the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, CA is his most notable accomplishment.

Not only was Vidmar the captain of the USA men’s gymnastics team, but he led it to America’s first ever team gold medal victory with a tremendous upset over the People’s Republic of China, the defending world champions.

During that same Olympics, Vidmar also became the first American to place in an Olympic All-Around event by winning a silver medal in the individual all-around competition.

However, his halo shined brightest in the “City of Angels” when his perfect 10 score in the pommel horse competition won him the gold medal!

His stellar Olympic accolades preceded his induction into the US Olympic Hall of Fame, twice as an individual and as a member of the mighty 1984 USA men’s gymnastics team.

Vidmar’s post-athletic career includes being a gymnastics commentator for CBS Sports and ESPN. He is currently the Chairman of the Board of USA Gymnastics, the national governing body of gymnastics in the United States.

His team-building experience and knowledge on performing your best under pressure have molded him into a marvelous keynote speaker.

Jones Loflin On Getting The Most Out Of Your Work

imgresKeynote speaker Jones Loflin’s newly relased article, “How To Be More Productive And Less Busy,” provides tips to anyone who feels that they are overworked or feel that their workloads are in high volume, but of little importance.

He outlines ways to combat these feelings of frustration and disappointment in his four main suggestions:

1. Have clarity about your priorities and the work to be done to accomplish them.

2. Start with a couple simple tasks.

3. Break down the big stuff.

4. Alternate tasks in your schedule.

Loflin conveys how people feel more validated at their workplace after having completed several simple tasks instead of a few harder tasks in one day.

He also points out possible variables that could lead to people feeling worn out or down on themselves at work.

“One of the reasons for this lack of productivity is the sheer number of distractions and crises vying for our attention each day. These items keep us moving, but not necessarily in a forward direction,” Loflin says.

Loflin is a master of motivation and offers a variety of programs for any organization on stress management, time management, and dealing with change.
