Pat Riley

President, The NBA's Miami Heat

One of the most successful coaches in NBA history, Pat Riley understands the keys to gaining a competitive advantage─ and winning. Current president and former head coach of the Miami Heat, Pat Riley is the consummate competitor who knows the exhilaration that comes with winning. He guided the Heat to the playoffs in each of his first three seasons with them, led the team to win the 2006 NBA Championship─the franchise's first title and most recently the 2012-2013 Championship. Riley shares his strategies for winning and outdistancing the competition on the court─and off. Riley understands the psychology of teamwork and personal excellence and is a master at creating organizations whose achievements are greater than the sum of their parts. He shows how to recognize the cycles of team change and make the most of every opportunity. Author of Showtime and The Winner Within, the Sporting News recently named Riley one of the 50 greatest coaches of all time. Mr. Riley will be speaking at the opening night dinner on September 9th, sponsored by MassMutual Retirement Services.
