Jim Craig, Olympic “Miracle on Ice” Goaltender, to Keynote 2016 Partnership for Performance Executive Summit
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA, February 23, 2016 – The Results Companies recently announced that Jim Craig will deliver the Opening Keynote Address at the 2016 Partnership for Performance Executive Summit taking place May 11 - 13, 2016 at The Ritz-Carlton Naples Beach Resort in Naples, Florida.
An All-American goalie at Boston University and standout for the Terriers’ 1978 NCAA championship squad, Jim was selected as the starting goaltender for the U.S. 1980 Olympic hockey team. At the Lake Placid games his performance was phenomenal. Indispensable to Team U.S.A.’s epic – what some have called miraculous – upset of the Soviet Union was the play of Jim Craig. In the game against the Soviets, the Americans were outshot 42-16, but Jim made 39 saves, many of the spectacular variety, and his teammates scored four goals to secure the victory. Two days later, against Finland, Jim was again superb, and Team USA won, 4-2, to take home Olympic gold.
In his keynote speech, Jim will discuss his experience on what inspires the pursuit of excellence in those who achieve greatness. He will cover what is it that separates those content with good enough, and with all right, and with the okay… and those who have an unquenchable thirst and drive to make history and establish the highest standards.
Jim uses the same principles from the 1980 Olympics, including a commitment to excellence and a shared dream, to help companies achieve unprecedented levels of success. The methods worked for the “Miracle on Ice” team and they have proven to work in the business world as well.February 23,2016
