Brian Holloway


Hired by more than 250 Fortune 500 Companies from around the world, Brian Holloway has set himself apart in delivering high performance value for the hard charging corporate competitors. Multi-Billion dollar giant HP and Compaq called on Brian to help meld these two extraordinary world cultures into one single, focused, turned-on TEAM. (During the biggest industrial world mergers).

A Stanford All-American, 1st round draft pick and 5-time All-Pro, Brian Holloway excelled as the powerhouse and team leader at the core of the 1985 New England Patriots Super Bowl team. In 1986, Brian was elected by his peers to forge the new directions in NFL policy, becoming the youngest Vice President of the NFL Players Association at age 23. Holloway was one of the principal architects of the NFL's growth strategy that produced a landmark $18 billion dollar television contract in 1998. He retired from the NFL in 1992 after eight seasons with the New England Patriots and two with the Los Angeles Raiders.

Brian has been a featured guest lecturer at Harvard's Business School, Yale University, Stanford University, Princeton, New York Graduate School of Business and Williams College. He has also been featured on CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, ESPN and in USA Today.

Born to an Air Force family, Brian grew up to face and overcome many challenges. Persistence and an unstoppable spirit propelled Brian through his early struggles and on to academic and athletic awards though his high school and college years. He was heavily recruited by Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth and Princeton, and was showered with over 350 scholarship offers. He chose Stanford, and there he earned varsity letters in both football and track under Hall of Fame Coach Bill Walsh, who calls Brian, "A true champion. A playmaker and a leader that calls out the best in people."

Brian's commitment to service grew throughout his playing days when he helped develop the first College Degree Completion Program for Professional Athletes. Beyond the game, he helped establish the Challenger Center for Space Education--a living educational memorial to the ill-fated crew of the Space Shuttle Challenger. His community activism embraces the homeless and inner city youth, and he vigorously supports the Special Olympics. President Bill Clinton recognized Holloway in 1995 as one of America's top young leaders. In 2007, Brian was enshrined in Stanford Universities Hall of Fame, as one of the greatest athletes of all time.

  • The Wake Up Call - This is not a keynote...this is a WAKE UP CALL! This is high-level corporate learning when you are in a "must win situation!" (In the NFL, this is called "crunch time.") There are 7 very specific things a leader must do to take command of their team, re-establish the momentum and set the tempo to win! In the must win situation, it all comes down to energy, execution and a passion to win. The bottom line: it's crunch time, and there is no margin for error. You don't just turn this switch on and off, you must develop high octane muscle within the culture, conversation, attitude and beliefs. It's the only way to succeed in a super competitive business environment.

  • Unleashing the Passion of the Playmaker - For high-powered executives who make the impossible happen, this is the crown jewel of motivational keynotes. After spending 16 years inside the super culture of world class competitors and 12 years inside corporate boardrooms, this is the most important conversation those executives will ever have. My 5 Outrageous Promises:
  • I will ignite the team and the leadership within.
  • I will uncover the untapped success, power and productivity that lie harbored inside the toxic virus called business activity.
  • I will reveal the ultimate secrets of champions who consistently outperform the competition.
  • I will create the most intense, inspirational breakthrough for everyone to totally see, get and take action!
  • I will unleash the passion of the playmaker!

  • Dynasty Crafting! - The Power of Championship Teams - The most powerful and explosive asset an organization has is the total energy, excitement and knowledge base of their team. On championship teams, the knowledge, ideas, creativity and passion come together for a total team-focused effort. These efforts create synergies to achieve a future that before was not possible. In today's competitive marketplace where price competition is shrinking the margins, cost take outs are maxed and industries become commoditized, this is the only advantage that truly exists.

  • The DNA of Championship Teams - Your Game Plan to Win! - In this keynote, Brian provides some of the most important learning any business leader could ever have, solving some of the biggest dilemmas that prevent teams from coming together! You will leave this presentation with your "game plan to win" - an exact step-by-step process that will turn your team around instantly. Once you have this system in place, you will never again be blindsided by backbiting, blameshifting and withholding - organizational viruses that can quickly kill a company. One senior executive replied, "...I learned more about organizational excellence in this fast-paced jam-packed three hours than I did in MBA."

  • The Mindset of the Champion - Crack the Code to Incredible Success! - This high-impact keynote is a battle-cry to awaken the Champion Within and get your team from the sidelines as spectators to the field as playmakers. In today's high-paced, stressed-out business environment, the competitive charge has turned from winning to seeking security and hoping for survival. (Most people who are talking about being burnt out haven't even been lit yet!) This is not a time for resignation and despair, but rather a time to break out of the "box" and reinvent who we are in the face of the impossible. In sales we must have the mindset of the champions -- this is how we win the sacred customer experience of securing the client-for-life relationship.
