Matt Mayberry, former NFL linebacker for the Chicago Bears and top-rated national keynote speaker, and Garry Ridge, CEO and member of the board of directors of the WD-40 Company, will provide keynote and closing Addresses at the 2020 Top Producer Summit, slated for Jan. 27–30 in Chicago.
As a former NFL player, healthcare industry business professional and entrepreneur, Mayberry has a real-world understanding that success is based on four key areas of peak performance: overcoming adversity, motivation, culture and teamwork. Currently one of the most-read columnists for Entrepreneur magazine and recently featured in Forbes and Business Insider and on NBC, ESPN, ABC and Fox News, his message delivers powerful take-home value and a detailed action plan for every attendee. Mayberry’s presentation is sponsored by Rabo AgriFinance.
Garry Ridge, CEO and member of the board of directors of WD-40 Company, will be the 2020 Top Producer Summit’s closing speaker. Ridge is responsible for developing and implementing high-level strategies and the oversight of all relationships and partnerships for the WD-40 Company. He also serves as a member of the board of governors of The San Diego Foundation and the University of San Diego’s School of Business Administration, where he’s an adjunct professor teaching leadership development, talent management and succession planning.
Both of these speakers will provide attendees valuable insights and fresh perspectives on adapting to changing environments and achieving success by learning how to lead through change.
