Football Great Joe Theismann to Present Keynote Address at SupplySide West 2006

LAS VEGAS--Virgo Publishing announced Joe Theismann, ESPN’s Monday Night Football Analyst and football great, will present the keynote at SupplySide West 2006 on Oct. 19 at The Venetian and Sands Expo. The keynote address is co-sponsored by BASF and Natural Products INSIDER magazine.

"BASF is pleased to sponsor Joe Theismann as the keynote speaker for SupplySide West 2006," said Emile Henein, Industry Manager, Dietary Supplements, for BASF in North America. "Joe's message will focus on having a 'game plan' for success, and in the dietary supplement industry--just as in football--you need a strong team to win."

Theismann will discuss his “Game Plan for Success”, which outlines the game plan that brought him success both on and off the football field. Former National Football League Most Valuable Player quarterback and Super Bowl champion, he will reveal his “Game Plan for Success” by drawing parallels between winning in football and in business. Theismann will focus on how to succeed under pressure and adapt quickly to unexpected situations.
