TRSA Second Annual Leadership Summit Welcomes NFL Icon Archie Manning As Keynote Speaker

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — February 8, 2019 — The TRSA 2nd Annual Leadership Summit will be held on June 19 at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans. This summit will build on last year’s highly successful outing which created opportunities for industry leadership to improve management team relations within participating companies. Scheduled as a pre-event to the Clean Show, industry CEOs/Executives should take this opportunity to recognize their young executives and emerging leaders (a concept critical to retaining talent) and foster collaboration in developing the next generations of top management.

TRSA welcomes keynote speaker and NFL icon Archie Manning, who will bring his unique perspective on leadership and teamwork to summit attendees. Manning is a beloved legend of the NFL’s New Orleans Saints, author, and sought-after speaker on leadership and family dynamics. Manning knows the importance of instilling and living by four principles for success: leadership, depending on others, being flexible, and playing the game, and he’s ready to coach you and your team to victory with this fail-proof game plan. Gain a deeper understanding of top traits shared by great leaders such as attitude, work ethic, preparation, and why skills that foster an attitude of teamwork need to be cultivated.

Archie Manning attended the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) where he was the starting quarterback for three seasons, two-time All-Southeastern Conference selection and third in the Heisman Trophy voting in 1970. Manning was the second overall pick in the 1971 National Football League (NFL) Draft and played 10 seasons for the New Orleans Saints, earning two Pro Bowl selections and was the NFC Player of the Year in 1978. He has mentored and inspired sons Peyton and Eli Manning, who were top quarterbacks in college and have had award-winning professional level careers with the NFL, with both having been awarded Super Bowl MVP’s. Archie and son Peyton Manning coauthored Manning: A Father, His Sons and A Football Legacy, which follows two generations of this family’s drive to succeed in life and in football. Manning was selected Father of the Year by the National Father’s Day Council in 2006. He currently serves in public relations and is a popular speaker on leadership, teamwork and motivation.
