Archie Manning Speaking Topics

  • Playing the Game

    We all love to win and hate to lose, however, the greatest rewards don't always come from winning the game, they come from playing the game. Motivational speaker Archie Manning touches on the idea that success is not a destination it is a journey. There is no road to happiness, happiness is the road. Sales, marketing, your career, your friendships, your family, no matter what the role you should know that you are fortunate to even get to play. Amateurs are those people who play because they want to win. Professionals win because they come to play. Play every down. Wake up every morning, suit up, and play the game.

  • Being Flexible

    You should always know how to follow your plan but also, and more importantly, you should know what to do when your plan fails. No matter what the scenario, there is always a better way to do something. Archie Manning demonstrates that this new and better way will always be discovered by someone who is flexible.

  • Depending on Others

    High achievers want to stand out and be successful, but everyone needs someone to help them and all successful people have had someone help them at one time or another. Archie Manning explains why it is a good thing to depend on others.

  • Leadership

    A talented leadership speaker, Archie Manning delivers a unique message: We must all develop an attitude of leadership. Every team member must take this attitude on in order for the team to succeed. Each team member should be asking: "What can I do? What is my part in this? How can I help the team?"
