John Naber is one of America's most successful Olympic champions. He was America's most highly decorated Olympian at the 1976 Games in Montreal (the second highest ever, at the time) earning four gold medals in swimming, each in world record time. Naber became the first swimmer in history to earn two individual medals on the same day of Olympic competition, and earned the Sullivan Award as America's top amateur athlete of 1977. He is enshrined in various Halls of Fame and is one of America's top Olympic ambassadors.

For over a quarter century, Naber has delighted audiences with his stories of ordinary people accomplishing extraordinary results in the area of life that is most important to them. Standing ovations attest to his ability to customize his remarks with humor, personal anecdotes and "Power Paragraphs" appropriate for each occasion. Naber consistently receives "gold medal reviews" from each of his clients.

During Naber's climb to the top of the sports world and his subsequent role as a TV sports commentator and host, John has become an observer of excellence and outstanding motivational speaker. He has worked as a Master of Ceremonies, keynote speaker, seminar leader, panelist, moderator, and dinner speaker for small audiences of twenty to full auditoriums of 50,000.

What has made him a successful motivational speaker is that John has conceptualized an effective eight-step method (which he calls the "Gold Medal Process") by which all people can see their dreams come true. His wide variety of Olympic stories involving discipline, dedication, sacrifice and teamwork, can make anyone feel like "going for the gold." John uses his experience as an athlete and a television commentator to draw analogies between the graphic world of sports and the less easily seen battleground of business.

Naber customizes his material for each new audience, and using humor, he shares the "behind-the-scenes" stories of the athletes and their accomplishments while matching his comments to the specific needs of his audience. John is always well received by his audiences...the standing ovations, powerful reference letters, and return engagements testify to his speaking abilities.
