Ashley Fox: From the Sidelines to the Headlines

Ashley Fox can take you from being an armchair quarterback to the coach of your own life.  With over twenty years’ experience reporting in a largely male-dominated profession, sports journalist Ashley Fox has picked up some things along the way. Those things are what makes Fox an excellent keynote speaker.

She has learned a lot from working directly with the world’s most accomplished athletes and coaches. For seven years, she covered the NFL for ESPN. Additionally, her career has taken her around the world. She’s reported on many prestigious sporting events including Wimbledon, the Super Bowl, the NBA Finals, the World Series, the PGA Championship and the Stanley Cup Finals. Her reputation as a journalist has been described as accurate, fair and honest.

A seven-minute documentary she created called “Brothers In Arms” is a compelling story that took her career to an even higher level. Made for ESPN’s SportsCenter, it features the compassionate friendship between Alejandro Villanueva and Arif Azimi. Before he was an offensive tackle for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Villanueva was an Army Ranger who served in Afghanistan. Azimi was his interpreter. Knowing that Azimi’s life was endangered because of his cooperation with US forces, Villanueva ensured that Azimi could immigrate to the United States.

While her background is in sports, Fox’s speaking delivers motivation, leadership and overcoming adversity. Her takeaways are relevant to any group – topics include:

  • Communication to Build Trust
  • Storytelling
  • Delegating to Empower
  • Media
  • Overcoming Fear

One of the things that makes Fox a good speaker is that she has mastered the art of listening. She also understands the value of good relationships and the importance of maintaining those relationships. Add to that her down to earth nature, positivity and optimism. The result is the benefit of her experience distilled into practical insights that can be incorporated into everyday life.
