Derek DalyIrish driving legend Derek Daly is the epitome of the complete champion. From the victory circle to the announcer’s desk, Hall of Fame Race Car Driver and network television color analyst Daly has spent nearly three decades as the face of the motorsport world.

His early dreams became reality when he won Irish, British and European championship events. In 1978, he competed in the Formula One World Championship, and two short years later Derek was ranked 10th in the world. In 1983 he made his first of six starts in the Indianapolis 500. Derek’s professional racing career spanned 17 years and his experiences are nothing short of breathtaking.

In 1985 Derek started a 10 year association with ESPN as a motor sport color analyst. He became the face of motor sports, seen on NBC, CBS, Fox and Speed Channel. USA Today highlighted Derek as “the best new face on sports television” and IndyCar Racing magazine voted Derek “the most popular motor sports television announcer.”

Derek DalyCross the finish line with Derek Daly as he speaks on The Culture Gearbox Shift: How to Shift From Good to Great to Extraordinary. Remember good to great? Today, it has shifted from great to extraordinary. Align this platform with the right culture, and you develop something truly unique: a culture of extraordinary. Derek will help you to think and act differently as you push your people to the edges and boundaries of what might be possible. You will embrace what it means to go beyond your best. Derek uses powerful, real-life sports analogies in a unique, compelling, and often hilarious manner, which leaves audiences in awe.
