Earvin Johnson, better known to most as Magic Johnson, will serve as keynote speaker at Mindbody’s annual Bold conference, taking place this year at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront, September 27-29.

Johnson will deliver his keynote on the final day of the conference, September 29, to an expected audience of 1,500 wellness practitioners. Topics to be discussed include “The Magic of Winning” and “The Magic of Caring for Others.” Johnson, a two-time Basketball Hall of Fame Inductee and the current president of basketball operations for the Los Angeles Lakers, will also discuss how giving back is a key factor in becoming a successful leader, as well as how he found that even the smallest efforts can empower others.

The chairman and CEO of Magic Johnson Enterprises will share his entrepreneurial expertise that has made him a successful business owner across multiple ventures. Johnson’s enterprise provides products and resource to underserved, urban communities. “Magic’s success both on-and-off the court is unrivaled, and we are honored to have him keynote this year’s Bold conference,” says Rick Stollmeyer, Mindbody CEO and cofounder. “His business and leadership insights will directly connect with our attendees, who are also committed, hard-working entrepreneurs.”
