Motivator, Entertainer, and Financial & Insurance Strategist
Veingrad is a motivator, entertainer, and financial & insurance
strategist. He may be the only former NFLer in history to become a
Torah-observant Orthodox Jew. Alan has shared his inspirational
messages of positivism, personal excellence, leadership, and spiritual
connection to corporate and business audiences worldwide.
Alan's candor and charisma keep audiences spellbound while he shares
stories of the intense training, ruthless competitive atmosphere, and
performance requirements of professional football life. His dynamic
presentation style and post-retirement experience in business
development have made him a much sought-after speaker by Fortune 500
companies, professional services firms, and owner-managed businesses.
In a one-of-a-kind presentation, Alan shares the story of how, after
retiring from professional football, he became aware his lifestyle was
more "style" than "life." A captivating speaker and storyteller, Alan
describes how the lifestyle he fell into after his retirement from
professional football left a void that unwittingly lead him to the
Torah and Mitzvos.
