About the Presenter: Dr. Matthew Raidbard has spent the past 16 years as a men's college basketball coach and senior level college athletics administrator. While pursuing his Doctorate in Educational Leadership, he conducted research on athletic coach leadership practice that led him to determine that coaches were not being provided the tools and resources required to take on the outsized leadership role they were asked to take on for their athletes and team. This discovery was the inspiration for his new book, "Lead Like A Pro: Effective Leadership Styles For Athletic Coaches," where he provides coaches, at all levels of sports, with tools to enhance their leadership practice and become more effective leaders.
