The best-selling author of nearly FIFTY sports books, Ross Bernstein is an award-winning peak performance business speaker who’s keynoted conferences on four continents for audiences as small as 10 and as large as 10,000. He’s spent the better part of the past 20 years studying the DNA of championship teams and his program, “The Champion’s Code: Life Lessons of Ethics and Accountability from the Sports World to the Business World,” not only illustrates what it takes to become the best of the best, it also explores the fine line between cheating and gamesmanship in sports as it relates to values and integrity in the workplace.

Ross and his books have been featured on thousands of television and radio programs over the years including CNN, ESPN, Fox News, and “CBS This Morning,” as well as in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and USA Today.

“Having the good fortune to have witnessed some great presentations throughout my career in the various associations that I belong to, I was not only inspired, but I was mystified by Ross’ knowledge, expertise and pure passion for a topic that I know nothing about. I am not a sports enthusiast, but every time he related a sports story to a business principle, I was immediately able to draw a connection. I had a lot of take-aways. It was fantastic!” — VP, Coaster Company of America
“We had Ross come in and be our keynote speaker for about 200 people in our sales operations and support organization. He was very conscientious about meeting with me beforehand and making sure to tailor his presentation to our audience as well as the tenor of our meeting. It is a tough audience in that it has a wide range of people, from back office order entry folks to people who do field training in a our highly technical field to three sales VP’s there to lend support. Ross did a great job during his presentation of capturing the attention of everybody in the room with his attitude and enthusiasm but most importantly with the substance of the message. Everybody could find something to relate to, and the message fit perfectly with what we were trying to get across to the team. We gathered feedback after the event, and it was literally universally positive, with Ross’s contribution a big reason why. We will certainly be looking for opportunities to work with Ross in the future.” — Director, Boston Scientific
