SMC³ announced today that it has retained renowned American football coach, sportscaster, author and motivational speaker Lou Holtz as the keynote speaker for its January 20-22, 2014 Jump Start conference. “We are proud to have Mr. Holtz join us at Jump Start 2014 in Atlanta,” said Jack E. Middleton, SMC³ president and CEO. “He is well known for motivating both sports and business professionals to succeed, and his message transcends athletics and resonates—even for those who aren't sports-minded.”
Holtz’s focus on the people and values that make relationships and organizations excel will be a core message at Jump Start 2014, as attendees navigate complex business, economic and transportation challenges and opportunities. “Jump Start attendees will learn more about how to apply Mr. Holtz’s many useful philosophies and approaches in their pursuit of excellence.
