Retired NBA All-Star Mark Eaton will serve as the opening keynote speaker for the 2014 Alabama Community Leadership Network (ACLN) Leadership Conference held Oct. 7-8 at the Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center.

"Mark has transformed the lives of many through his astounding story of triumph and record-breaking success," said Arturo Menfee, conference director and Extension specialist with the Economic and Community Development Institute at Auburn University.

Throughout his 12-year (1982-1993) professional career in the NBA, Eaton was awarded one NBA All-Star selection in 1989 and two NBA Defensive Player of the Year awards in 1985 and 1989. Retiring with 875 games, 5,216 points, 6,939 rebounds and 3,064 blocks under his belt, he is known as one of the best defensive centers in NBA history. He holds the record for most blocks in one season with 456.

Since his retirement from the NBA, Eaton has continued in his success to become an entrepreneur, TV and radio talk show host, world-class speaker, trainer and coach.

Today Eaton travels the country employing principles and coaching techniques to teach industry leaders, teams and individuals how to outsmart, outlast and outperform their competition and achieve record- breaking success.
