Learn how a Rookie Driver Used Teamwork and Communications to  Beat the Best
Rick DeBruhl is a lifelong communicator. With a career that started in radio and now finds him covering auto racing for ESPN, he’s learned the art of storytelling. Not only can he take you through Alexander Rossi’s amazing victory in the 100th running of the Indy 500, but he can help your organization understand how they can use the same tools to find success.

Alexander Rossi’s victory was an incredible achievement. Here was a rookie who had never driven in this race, beating drivers and teams with decades of experience. So how did he do it?

Two words: communications and teamwork. Telling that story is more than just entertaining, it’s an amazing lesson in how any business can find a victory.
