Oscar Robertson    

Former NBA Player; Only Player in NBA History to Average a Triple-Double for a Season

Robertson has been an all-time all-star at every level from high school to the National Basketball Association, and remains an international ambassador for the game even years after his retirement. He is a member of the National Basketball Hall of Fame, past President of the Retired NBA Players Association and served for 11 years as President of the NBA Players Association.

Robertson's leadership abilities have also propelled him to success off the court as one of the nation's most successful entrepreneurs. He has more than a half-dozen startup ventures to his credit, including the definitive book on basketball fundamentals, "The Art of Basketball." He runs his small business empire on the same principles that made him a basketball legend: hard work, visionary thinking, adaptability, a winning attitude and an unflinching devotion to the value of teamwork.

Robertson's philanthropic work is legendary as well. He is a national advocate for organ transplantation through his work with the National Kidney Foundation and the U.S. Transplant Games. Through organizations such as the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, he has helped to mentor and encourage thousands of youngsters. Now The Big O brings his winning game plan to the lecture stage for an inspiring presentation that motivates everyone who has ever wanted to reach for more.
