I can’t thank you enough Brittney for making this happen. Muggsy was awesome!!! The students and families loved him. They gave him a standing ovation after he spoke. He was so gracious. After the event was over, all the students wanted to have their photos taken with him and get an autograph. He accommodated everyone.
I hope we’ll have an opportunity to work together again. It was such a great experience.

“I read Muggsy’s book twice, watched every video I could find, communicated with his highschool coach, Coach Wade, and talked to you (Brittney his publicist), but I was not ready for yesterday. I have never been around someone with the perfect mix of confidence and humility.
“We were honored to have Muggsy Bogues speak at our event February 2018. He inspired the audience with his personal story of triumph, and his heartfelt words captivated everyone in attendance. We greatly appreciate his support of our oral health programs for children and his efforts to give underserved youth opportunities to succeed and thrive.”

“Muggsy was the perfect addition to our event. His knowledge of the game and experience on the court brought just the right mix of information to the stage to keep our audience captive during a morning motivational business session. His testimony is inspiring and something that all types of people, athletes or not, can relate to.”

“Mr. Muggsy Bogues was the keynote speaker at Teen Health Connection’s 25th-anniversary luncheon held on February 28, 2017. Muggsy gave a heartfelt and passionate speech about his childhood years, his upbringing and the obstacles he surpassed to succeed in life. The audience was moved by his words, which underscored the depth of his support for the Charlotte community, his long-term commitment to our youth, and his unwavering advocacy for youth development. We were very pleased to have Muggsy with us as Teen Health Connection celebrated 25 years of service to teens and families.”
– Terry Albanese
“American Express greatly enjoyed working with Muggsy for our exclusive Watch Party event. Muggsy was a big draw for the fans and had a great presence at the event. He integrated himself into the role seamlessly and was extremely personable. We look forward to working with Muggsy at future events in support of our Warriors partnership!”
“We truly enjoyed our day with Muggsy. He not only inspired our youth with his motivational speech but our staff as well. His story speaks to everyone, believe in yourself and anything is possible.”

“Muggsy painted such a thorough/rich picture of his journey. A number of people indicated that they were surprised to hear about the many other obstacles he faced beyond his height. I received a lot of positive remarks about his willingness to mingle before and after the event, including the long line of folks wanting to meet him and get their picture – and then wanting to join a small group of people for lunch at the conclusion (which was spontaneous/not planned). Finally, so many people were touched by how open and authentic he was, and were deeply touched by his comfort in expressing his emotion.
Bottom line, everyone loved him. He was central to making our program a success.”
-Kevin Farrell, Enterprise Supplier Management
“It was a true pleasure to have Muggsy as our featured speaker last week. There are so many parallel messages and points that he was able to discuss that fit into the experiences that we face on a day-to-day basis. As a “small, undersized” company, we constantly hear that “we can’t keep up with the big guys…..” As such, it can be a challenge to continually motivate our team and have them focusing on playing our game – – – not what the competition is trying to make us play. Well, Muggsy brought it all together by not only discussing his on-court challenges, but also his personal life experiences and what he faced growing up to the proud, accomplished person he is.
In addition, you and Muggsy were AWESOME to work with. You certainly went out of your way to understand our company, our challenges, and its philosophy so you could make our time together as meaningful as it was. To top it all off, the personal touch of spending time with each one of our teammates during and after made the event a huge win!”

“Muggsy did an excellent job relating to all of the kids and ensured each child improved their skills both on and off the court. He was great with the kids throughout his time at Chelsea Piers for the WAT-AAH! Foundation and Drink Up Event. It was such an honor to have him host the event. Muggsy helped communicate our message by emphasizing the importance of drinking water and staying active through physical activity. He spoke about his past experiences and how he overcame obstacles to succeed in the NBA and in life. No matter how long it took, Muggsy made sure each kid completed the drills. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience that the kids will remember for years to come. It achieved more than we could have ever hoped. The parents who were there loved it almost as much as the kids who were doing the drills. He did an excellent job ensuring the kids paid attention and were engaged, from the moment he stepped on the court and greeted all of them. His ambition and desire was truly inspirational. At the end of his time, the kids (and even some of the parents) did not want him to go.”
