Ross Bernstein Bio


The best-selling author of nearly 50 sports books, Ross Bernstein is an award-winning peak performance hall of fame business speaker who's keynoted conferences for Fortune 500 companies on five continents and has been featured on thousands of TV and radio programs over the years including: CNN, "CBS This Morning," ESPN, and Fox News, as well as in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and USA Today.

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 "The Champion's Code: Building Relationships Through Life Lessons of Integrity and Accountability from the Sports World to the Business World" is all about winning... with integrity.

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 around the world -- 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.
