The Duke of Wellington is credited with saying. “The Battle of Waterloo was won on the playing-fields of Eton."  From before the 19th Century to today, sports have molded our business and professional leaders.  Sports can teach today’s accountants about many critical business issues, including strategy, culture, metrics, management, innovation, adversity and sustainability.  This session explores lessons we can all use from great, and not so great, moments in sports.  Quit feeling guilty about playing those extra nine holes or watching “March Madness”– you are learning important professional skills!
