Kyle Emanuel Keynote Speaker

Kyle has always had the “it” factor which was clearly evident at a young age through his dedication to mastering any challenge he faced.  That natural instinct is what led him to become a leader at NDSU on and off the field.  Ultimately leading to a successful career in the NFL.

In April 2019, Kyle Emanuel announced his retirement from the NFL to pursue other goals in life.  One initiative being to better support the community that has supported him for so many years, Fargo ND.  Kyle joined BNC Speakers to help him better spread his experience of overcoming adversity to the members of the community.

Kyle is available for keynote talks as well as smaller intimate training sessions for businesses looking to improve the performance of their teams.  His focus on mental toughness and creating a winning mindset are two of the most impactful topics Kyle shares with his audience.
