Derek Daly knows the world moves fast and he wants to take audiences on a thrill ride that shows businesses why speed and accuracy matter.
Derek is a world class Formula One and Indy 500 Driver and entrepreneur. He has also been a television analyst for 25 years.
With his native Irish wit, the Hall of Fame race car driver presents powerful analogies with straight forward and fascinating details, delivered with the same energy and humor that has made him one of television’s most popular sports commentators and a world class speaker.
You can’t remain emotionally neutral during his keynotes and his promise is to have you on the edge of your seat.
Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland to a middle class working family, Derek’s career path was set at the age of twelve when he attended his first auto race.
In 1984, Derek suffered one of the hardest crash impacts that a driver had ever survived when he hit the wall at Michigan International Speedway at 212 MPH. After fourteen surgeries and three years in therapy, he returned to full-time racing. He competed in the 12 Hours of Sebring – one of the premier motorsport endurance races in the US – and won the race two years in a row.
Derek has taught the timeless principles of his most valuable asset – speed. Companies like Xerox, Bayer, Deloitte, Growmark, USDA, Department of Defense, Federal Reserve Bank, Pepsico, State Farm, Zurich Insurance and Gallo wines have depended on Derek’s Complete Champion Model to motivate, inspire and enlighten their teams.
