I had a wonderful time in Fort Myers meeting with the very best Olympic athletes from around the world
Hollywood, California (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
Bernard Bonner, CEO of Business Development International (BDI) attended the The Art of the Olympians College of Life Foundation Premiere Golf Classic in Fort Myers, Florida in December, 2012. Nearly 60 celebrities took part in the 3-day event, which raised money for Art of the Olympians non-profit programs. Iconic sports superstars like Julius "Dr. J" Irving, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Al Joyner, Chris Mullin, Mike Eruzione, Tim Hardaway, Carl Lewis, Thurman Thomas, and Gary Sheffield were in attendance. Bonner's attendance of this event follows his attendance and co-chairing The Clinton Foundation - Night Out With The Millennium Network which was held in Los Angeles, California on October 8, 2012.
"I had a wonderful time in Fort Myers meeting with the very best Olympic athletes from around the world. It was a pleasure attending this charitable event." States Bernard Bonner. "These athletes are very much like everyday businessmen and executives because they really understand commitment to excellence. Sports and business can always be compared to one another because to have success in either requires the same successful traits and discipline. Bob Beamon, Carl Lewis, Jackie Joyner-Kersee can easily be compared to a Jack Welch, Bill Gates, or Steve Jobs. These people are winners and clearly understand what it takes to accomplish goals as an individual or with a group."
