SPEAKER/SPOKESPERSON: JOJO STARBUCK
As an Olympic and professional athlete, businesswoman, wife and mother, JoJo Starbuck's busy life has brought her insight that crosses many boundaries. Her speech topics vary as widely as her life experience, but share common themes of learning through life and the importance of providing and accepting support along the way. Her wisdom, elegance and charm have made her a popular spokesperson for the baby boomer generation.
Many thanks to JoJo for speaking to our organization on the opening day of the Winter Olympics. The feedback I received from the entire staff was universally positive. Especially meaningful was how she was able to tie her personal experiences to lessons we could all learn from in business and our private lives. JoJo reminded us that with hard work, dedication, a strong support system and teamwork, all our dreams can come true.

For our quarterly advisory council business reception, Valley National Bank was fortunate to bring in JoJo Starbuck. She enlightened and entertained our guests with her presentation entitled, "The Olympic Journey: The Thrills and Spills of Reaching Your Dream." Not only was her journey humorous, insightful, and a fresh departure form our norm, but she fascinated a packed room of senior level lawyers, accountants, and bankers with her collection of memories about dedication, perseverance, and life from the inside of the elite world of sports. Her visuals flowed well, and JoJo carefully tailored her presentation to this audience of accomplished professionals.

In skating, as well as in the world at large, ethics and example play an extremely important role in advising today's youth. JoJo so eloquently impressed on our membership the awesome responsibility we have in dealing with young, impressionable minds ... her topic couldn't be more timely.
