THE FOUR COMMITMENTS OF A WINNING TEAM
MARK EATON, FORMER NBA ALL-STAR, UTAH JAZZ
    
Mark is a team building expert who shares with organizations and audiences nationwide, how he went from a 7’4″ twenty-one year old mechanic who couldn’t play basketball to a twelve year career as an NBA All Star with the Utah Jazz. He reveals the secrets that skyrocketed him to fame as the Two-Time Defensive Player of the Year, enabled him to break the NBA record for the most blocked shots in a single season and be selected to play in the 1989 All-Star Game. Today Mark travels the country employing principles and coaching techniques from his twelve years playing pro basketball to teach industry leaders, teams and individuals how to outsmart, outlast and outperform their competition and achieve record breaking success.
