Byron T. Embry is CEO and Founder of Closing Remarks, LLC, a premier leadership development and communications organization. Byron has used his 12 years of experience as a professional baseball player to establish himself as an international speaker. He is regarded by many to be one of the most dynamic speakers in the world relating to leadership, personal and professional development.
Byron’s unyielding desire is to implement practical concepts to individuals and organizations that enables them to utilize their strengths to cultivate a passion for success. One of the keys to his success is customizing his presentations to speak to the unique needs and culture of each organization. “He thoroughly researched our field and gave a riveting talk that impressed elite scientists and government officials alike,” says Thomas M. Lachocki, Ph.D. of The National Swimming Pool Foundation. His attention to detail and the understanding of the uniqueness of organizations is what sets Byron apart from traditional speakers.
As a “closer” during his baseball career, Byron learned early on that closers are generally the teams most dominate pitcher who is selected to pitch the last few outs of a game . . . when the game is on the line. Teams that win championships often have the most consistent closers. Byron has discovered that to be a champion in life is not much different - it takes passion, consistency and desire. “As a closer, you come in when the game is on the line," says Embry. "A closer makes certain that his team comes out ahead. Corporations, families and organizations do not need more leaders...they need more closers.”

The Three Little Pig Syndrome
We live in a day that folks are often offended by competent leadership. It causes their ego breaks out in a rash. It causes their personal agenda break out in hives. And this allergic reaction they have toward accountability irritates them to the point that all they want to do is get rid of you. I call it Leadership Assassination!! When folks will talk about you, lie on so they can get rid of you. Leadership Assassination. In this presentation we will take a semi- exegetical approach to the story of the three little pigs to gain a unique perspective on who is after you, why they are after you and what you can do about it.
THE THREE LITTLE PIG SYNDROME
Byron takes an in depth look at the story of the Three Pigs as he examines the personality traits each pig and that of the wolf that comes to inflect harm. Byron will teach you and your audience how to identify and build a leadership structure with the "brick" you have been born with.
