With his trademark irreverence, candor and humor, Barkley will take the podium during the Spring 2006 Channel Partners Conference & Expo to speak on lifelong learning as a foundation for a career and life marked by success and social responsibility.
Sponsored by Voila IP, Barkleys commentary will draw from his own colorful career, which began in the NBA, where he was named a league MVP and one of the 50 greatest players of all time. He also is a two-time Olympic gold medalist. Following 16 seasons in the NBA, the outspoken Barkley embarked on a second career as a sportscaster and journalist. He is in his fifth season as a commentator on Turners NBA on TNT post-game show. He also is a frequent guest on CNN, The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman and Real Time with Bill Maher.
Barkley has not only moved effortlessly from the basketball court to the TV screen, he also has put pen to page. The authors most recent titles are the New York Times bestseller, I May Be Wrong, But I Doubt It, and his latest effort, Whos Afraid of a Large Black Man? which is due out in paperback in February.
