Sports analogies have never been used in a more powerful way...

n addition to being a television broadcaster for Motorsports (10 years with ESPN and 10 years with FOX Sports/Speed Channel), Derek has also been a professional speaker for the past twenty years.

He has competed against world champions - raced for some of the worlds most successful teams - won all over the world- lived in Monte Carlo - dined with Royalty - and was almost killed three times.........The experiences are breathtaking .......and they provide the model of Speed and Flawless Execution so vital for corporations who want to be successful in the next decade.

 Background: Derek's background is all Motorsports, television and business. He was a professional Formula One and Indy Car driver before moving to a career in television broadcasting. He founded the first high speed motor sports information service in partnership with USA Today. His training and employee development company, MotorVation has worked with companies such as, Wellpoint, Raytheon, Kraft and CNN.

His keynote topics are peppered with colorful real life motor sports analogies that relate in a powerful way to business. He has personal friendships and works with people such as Mario Andretti, Roger Penske, David Letterman, Paul Newman and Sylvester Stallone. Clients that he has spoken for include, Benetton, Rolex, BMW, Honda, Bentley Motor Cars, Gallo Wines, Sony, First Energy, Prudential, Deloitte, Abbott Laboratories, etc.

Because his presentations are so strong in the motivational field but his background is television and that of a professional athlete, he falls into several categories, motivation and celebrity/athlete. He's from Dublin, Ireland and is definitely NOT like many others
