Ruben Gonzalez'S SPEAKING FEE Under $25,000

The only person to ever compete in four Winter Olympics each in a different decade, Ruben Gonzalez takes people’s excuses away and inspires them to produce more than ever before.

At 47, Ruben was the oldest luge competitor in the Vancouver Olympics. At 55, he became the oldest person to compete internationally in the sport of luge. 

Ruben’s is a common man who achieved extraordinary things. He wasn’t a gifted athlete. In school he was always the last kid picked to play sports. 

He didn’t take up the sport of luge until he was 21. Four years and a few broken bones later, he was competing in the Calgary Winter Olympics. 

People buy into what Ruben teaches because they can relate to him. The most common comments after his presentations are, “He’s so real. He’s so genuine.”

Since 2002 Ruben has spoken for over 100 of the Fortune 500 companies. His bestselling books have sold over 300,000 copies and have been translated to over 10 languages.

Because of his copier sales background, Ruben’s spoken at hundreds of Sales Kickoffs.

His leadership TED talk, “The Power of Following the Leader,” is a must-see.

Ruben’s incredible story will take your people’s excuses away and fill them with the belief and inspiration to face their challenges and fight for their goals.
