Emmitt Smith Named 2014 Operations Summit Thursday Keynote Speaker

Emmitt Smith, former Dallas Cowboys tailback, was once considered too small and too slow for pro football. In October 2002, Emmitt Smith became the NFL's all-time rusher, breaking Walter Payton's 1984 record of 16,726 yards. Now turned a respected entrepreneur, a sought-after speaker, best-selling author and one of the most valuable personal brands in the sports-entertainment field, Emmitt Smith will share his recipe for success at Operations Summit 2014.

In the keynote Smith will outline the principles that helped him become a winner on and off the football field – and how to develop the focus it takes to be the best personally and to be part of the best operations team. Smith, who in 2006 was crowned winner of the hit ABC reality show “Dancing with the Stars,” will reveal that it's not only vision and talent that propel us toward our dreams, but also a combination of determination, persistence, humility, courage, and faith.

Smith’s keynote will take place Thursday April 24, 2014 at The 3rd Annual Operations Summit in Indianapolis, IN. On Wednesday, April 23 the Operations Summit 2014 will host an industry Top Operations Keynote Power Panel that will include senior operations executives from Newegg, OSP Group, Finish Line and Guitar Center.
