Two-time heavyweight champion, Olympic gold medalist and successful entrepreneur George Foreman will be the featured speaker at the annual Weldbend IPD Breakfast Oct. 19 in Orlando, Fla., during Network ASA 2012, the American Supply Association’s annual convention.
Weldbend - an industry leader in domestically-manufactured carbon steel weld fittings and weld flange products - brings another larger-than-life personality to headline its annual breakfast. In 2011, Gene Simmons of the rock band KISS and various business ventures spoke at the event.
“George Foreman is a terrific speaker who we all know will both entertain and inspire our guests,” Weldbend President Jim Coulas said. “Hosting the IPD Breakfast each year is one way for us to let our customers know how much we appreciate them.”
Foreman won the gold medal at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City and went on to have a 76-5 professional record with 68 knockouts. Foreman won his first heavyweight title in 1973 with a second-round knockout of the then unbeaten and undisputed champion Joe Frazier. He retired in 1977 with a 45-2 record, but returned to boxing in 1987. On November 5, 1994, Foreman defeated Michael Moorer by knockout in the 10th round to become the oldest heavyweight champion of all time.
George Foreman retired in 1997 at the age of 48. After his retirement, he became the face of the highly successful ‘George Foreman Grill’ and has authored a half-dozen best-selling books, including the recent The Knockout Entrepreneur.
This event is open to IPD members (and their spouses) that are registered to attend NetworkASA 2012. Don't miss out...Register today!
