Kik with motivation? He knows how to coach college football, but getting people motivated with his speaking prowress is not his forte. I would put him right before lunch while people are heading out early.
No argument here, Ferentz is a great cure for insomnia. That said, Fred isn't exactly Mr. Charisma either. He's easily better than Ferentz but I don't think of him as an especially motivating speaker.
I went to one of these in Des Moines maybe six(?) years ago. It was Steve Forbes talking about the flat tax and Phil Town pushing his investment books and seminars. There was George Foreman and a couple of others too.
It wasn't all bad, but it was just slickly produced nothingness. They advertised tickets as being $200 or $300 if I recall, but they were literally giving them away outside.
Apparently they struck on the idea of having local celebrities participate, to help drive attendance. Good for Fred but I wish he wouldn't associate with it.
I was at that one too and it was 100% just an excuse to get out of work.
While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”
I've been to one of these... they're oustanding... you have to listen to big "improve yourself now tool" sales pitches in between the speakers you want to hear, but man... the other speakers are great. Anyone who can go (especially if your employer will pay for it) should go.
When I went, Colin Powell was great and Laura Bush was very good as well. Terry Bradshaw = OUTSTANDING! I'll be Joe Montana will be good.
