The 2018 Major League Baseball (MLB) American League Rookie of the Year, Shohei Ohtani is the sensational “Babe Ruth of Japan” pitcher and hitter for the Los Angeles Angels. He will be honored for his positive impact on Japanese and American youth, specifically for being a great role model. His first year in MLB as a two-way player inspired fans on both sides of the Pacific. Ohtani's unprecedented performance during his 2018 rookie season attracted many Japanese tourists to visit Los Angeles and extended opportunities for the people of Japan and the U.S. to continue building on the strong bonds between the two countries. This year marks Ohtani’s second season with the Angels. He returns as one of the league's most feared designated hitters, while rehabilitating as a pitcher.
Marie Kondo will be honored by JASSC for her positive contributions to mainstream American’s appreciation of Japan through her best-selling book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing,” as well as her hit Netflix series, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo,” a cultural phenomenon that has inspired home makeovers, helping American families clear out the clutter -- and choose joy.

Los Angeles Sparks BIO
Additional Speakers will be announced soon.
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 and Young (EY) Women Athletes Business Network and espnW, 74% said 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.
