John Wilson is a championship winning athlete, change maker and relentless advocate for the importance of fun, play and passion in work and life. Humbly starting his soccer journey in a pair of Converse high tops, John’s winning mentality and talent with the ball allowed him to experience the sport at the highest levels of the collegiate and professional game.
He currently serves as an Assistant Coach with the Charleston Battery, ambassador for the sport to under-served communities and thought leader for business communities on risk taking, trailblazing and teamwork.
Whether at the office, at home or in the community, we often feel our actions are not moving the needle in ways that make a difference.
He believes three letters can change all that and is excited to launch his new venture, Yes with John Wilson, a unique initiative dedicated to recognizing the power of YES!
“YES” shapes change-makers and results in the “YES” stories he lives to share.
"After getting to know John and his public speaking and motivational skills, competitiveness, and utmost professionalism, I invited him onto a national sales team call at Cisco Systems, and he hit it out of the park! He has an authentic style and a real way of connecting with the audience. I'd highly recommend him to help ignite your team!"
