ECIA 2022 Executive Conference Closing Keynote Speaker Announced 
Ross Bernstein Explains “The Champion's Code”  

Atlanta — The closing session of the ECIA 2022 Executive Conference is all about the DNA of what makes champions in sports so unique and how that relates to business. It’s based on a series of books written by Ross Bernstein in which he was able to interview more than 1,000 professional athletes and coaches that all had one thing in common — they were all members of championship teams. In his research he concluded that the same metrics and characteristics that were common among champions in sports, were also common among peak performers in business. There are reasons certain teams win consistently, whereas others don't... and Ross explains why. It's based largely on the "Good to Great" concept of how the best companies are able to separate themselves from the rest of the pack through servant leadership, by creating a culture of excellence, by developing deeper relationships, and by giving extraordinary customer service. This session is sponsored by Cornell-Dubilier Electronics. 
Ross Bernstein is a best-selling author of nearly 50 sports books, and an award-winning peak performance hall of fame business speaker who has keynoted conferences for Fortune 500 companies on all seven continents and has been featured on many major television networks and publications. 
“The last speaker on the schedule of a business conference has got to be very dynamic, and Ross will not disappoint,” commented ECIA President and CEO David Loftus. “Ross comes highly recommended, and I know his research into what makes a champion will inspire us all. Thanks to Cornell-Dubilier Electronics for bringing this excellent presentation to wrap up what I expect to be a memorable conference.”  
The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Bucking Normal, the Resilient Thrive Through Disruption.’  
The schedule has been posted and the latest information on the conference is available now.  
The Executive Conference runs October 23-25 at the Loews Chicago O'Hare.
