I'm happy to have been invited to deliver the keynote speech for Host City Americas 2021, which took place on June 29th.
I was thrilled to participate in Host City Americas, as they are a forum supporting many of the same values and ideals that I do: one of which, is a call to the return of normalcy after the world suffered a highly challenging 2020. I believe one of the ways the world can unite and come together once again is through our shared appreciation and enjoyment of sports events, athletic competition, and fair and free play. Enjoy!
