Increasing evidence shows that playing sports can transfer into your professional

career, helping you become a better and more influential leader.

Playing sports is often considered a male thing, but the expectation that sports can

help your career holds for women, as well as men. In a 2014 report of women

executives by Ernst & Young (EY), Women Athletes Business Network and espnW,

74% indicated a background in sport can help accelerate a woman’s career. 

In another report, they found an overwhelming correlation between athletic and

business success -- 94% of women in the C-suite played sports and 80% of female 

Fortune executives played competitive sports.

Against the backdrop of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, this year’s conference will

address the character traits and attributes that are common among great athletes

and business leaders.  The speakers will highlight leadership qualities that are

both effective on and off the field, and share skills learned in athletics that

have a direct workplace crossover.
