San Jose, CA (PRWEB) January 4, 2011

Three distinguished speakers: Super Bowl Champions Ronnie Lott and Trent Dilfer, and inspirational speaker/author Keith Potter will each share their own personal and life altering experiences on two separate evenings, January 20th and 21st, at the Elizabeth A. Hangs Theater, Santa Clara Convention Center. The speakers event theme is “Overcoming Adversity: When Life Puts the Hit on You.” Tickets are available now at http://www. championproject. com.

Each speaker will share their personal adversity experience: from personal tragedy to family illnesses, and from business challenges to the ups and downs of winning and losing on the field, Lott, Dilfer and Potter are prepared to be transparent and deeply personal in sharing how they managed the lows, the difficulties they did not foresee, and the lessons learned along the way.

Proceeds will go to two important initiatives: the Champion Project and All Stars Helping Kids non - profit organizations. The Champion Speaker Series will offer inspirational and life-equipping experiences for leaders and teams of every kind in diverse communities throughout the U. S. The Sponsor-A-Class Program, offered by All Stars Helping Kids strives to provide 360 degrees of support for disadvantaged children, enabling them to escape the cycle of poverty and realize their dreams.

“Adversity happens to all of us, no matter your level of success or notoriety,” said Keith Potter the co-founder of the Champion Project. “It brings you down hard, makes you doubt yourself and creates a level of stress where you are unable to see the upside. Each of us will share our own personal story of adversity, how we handled or didn’t handle it, and ultimately, how we worked through it. We hope to bring a fresh perspective from the challenges we faced, and how we’ve survived, grown, and even flourished in the face of these adversities.”
