Marilyn King is a two-time Olympian (Munich, 1972 & Montreal, 1976) in the grueling five event Pentathlon (100 meter hurdles, shot put, high jump, long jump, 800 meters). Her 20-year athletic career includes five national titles and a World Record.

An automobile accident in 1979 rendered her unable to train physically for her third Olympic Team. Using only mental training techniques she placed second at the Olympic trials for the 1980 Moscow Games.

This extraordinary experience launched her exploration into the field of exceptional human performance. Her discovery of the three elements that are always present when ordinary people do extraordinary things led to the development of Olympian Technology”.

The implications of her findings regarding human performance prompted Marilyn to give up her prestigious head coaching position at the University of California, Berkeley to found Beyond Sports. Through keynotes, trainings and consulting, Marilyn provides business leaders and educators with thinking tools that will serve them for a lifetime. Her work is a powerful example of applying skills learned through sports to the areas of business, education and peace.

Over the past 17 years Marilyn’s message of unlimited possibility has inspired thousands worldwide. Her techniques have been incorporated by businesses seeking to empower employees, embrace change and provide global leadership. Her corporate clients include American Express, Apple Computer, AT&T, Haas School of Business, Hewlett Packard, IBM, L.M. Ericsson, Monsanto, Sun Microsystems, Swiss Reinsurance Company and Xerox Business Services.

Marilyn has also presented at over 200 national and international education conferences with academicians and researchers who are designing schools of the future. She is the creator of an inner city Oakland youth empowerment program called “Dare to Imagine.”

Her most pioneering work, a joint Russian-American venture called the Peace Team prompted two invitations to speak at the United Nations. She is currently featured in numerous articles and books including, DreamMakers by Michele Hunt and Spirit Of Champions by Lyle Nelson & Thorn Bacon, and appeared recently on the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer.

“Marilyn King is a high-content, high-powered speaker who can inspire your people to Go for the Gold”
