"The Champion's Code"

Ross Bernstein

The best-selling author of nearly 50 sports books, Ross Bernstein is an award-winning hall of fame peak-performance business
speaker who’s keynoted conferences for Fortune 500 companies on ALL SEVEN continents for audiences as small as 10 and as
large as 10,000. Ross and his books have been featured on thousands of television and radio programs including CNN, FOX
News, “CBS This Morning,” MSNBC, Bloomberg and ESPN, as well as in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and USA Today.

There are reasons certain teams win consistently, whereas others come up short... and Ross explains why. Inspired by the
“Good to Great” concept of how the best companies are able to separate themselves from the rest of the pack through dynamic
leadership, by creating a culture of excellence, by developing deeper relationships, and by giving extraordinary customer service— Ross’ program is all about winning... with integrity.

Ross’ signature keynote, “The Champion’s Code,” is based on more than six years of research that resulted in two critically acclaimed series of sports-business books. The first examines how and why certain teams win world championships; while the other chronicles the unwritten and unspoken rules in the world of sports, or “codes” as they are known, which explores the fine line between cheating and gamesmanship — and the ethical consequences involved when that line is crossed. Ross interviewed more than 1,000 professional athletes and coaches for
the six books and along the way he saw some fascinating trends, patterns, metrics and analytics develop among certain peak
performers who possessed a very unique DNA. For these special individuals, or “champions,” it wasn’t always about winning, it was about following their moral compass’ in order to play the game the right way — with respect — in order to achieve success.

Weaving inspirational stories and poignant life lessons from the world of sports, along with success stories and best-practice
ideas of businesses and executives who he has worked with — Ross challenges his audiences to think about the differentiators
they possess which would ultimately lead customers to choose to do business with them, or be influenced and led by them. At
the core of his message is the simple fact that we like to do business with people who we trust, who we like, and who just “get
it” — CHAMPIONS. Ross’ message reinforces the fact that individuals win games, but TEAMS win championships. Momentum,
roles, buy-in, motivation, consistency, sacrifice, trust, failure, chemistry, culture, work-ethic, innovation, karma, and
being humble — they’re all a part of what it takes to become the best of the best — a champion both on and off the field.
