Baseball’s “Iron Man” to Speak at Agilysys’ Three-Day User Conference in Las Vegas

Hospitality professionals and industry thought leaders from a variety of backgrounds will share their insight on how to increase revenue and create stronger connections with guests and partners. The event will also include an Executive Summit, a golf event on Sunday, January 28, and a series of pre-conference product training sessions for Agilysys users.
"We are excited to have a sports icon of Cal Ripken, Jr.'s caliber as a guest speaker at Inspire," said Robert Shecterle, Director of Marketing at Agilysys. "Cal truly is the personification of leadership, commitment and excellence, and we believe he will deliver an inspirational and thought-provoking presentation to our audience. His keys to success are based on personal experiences and founded in an uncompromised work ethic, and he will be a wonderful addition to our event."
In addition to his world-famous baseball career, Ripken authored several books on sports and parenting and his autobiography is a New York Times bestseller. He visited tsunami- and earthquake-ravaged towns and ran baseball camps using baseball as a good will bridge. Cal has also promoted teamwork and cross-cultural communication to Japan, resulting in him being named as a special envoy for the U.S. State Department.
