Former Harlem Globetrotter Tracy Williams announced as Global Ambassador
Former Harlem Globetrotter and Internationally Acclaimed Transformational Speaker, Tracy A. Williams is set to inspire positive change as the Global Ambassador for Charity Bounce. The Global Ambassador role has been developed for Tracy Williams to engage with organisations around the globe to expand opportunities for Charity Bounce to deliver community initiatives using basketball to deliver health, education, and employment outcomes. While in Sydney, Tracy will be participating in events and activities to support Charity Bounce programs and achieve positive outcomes for participants.
Tracy Williams will be able to use his experiences from his childhood to his time with the Harlem Globetrotters, to his lessons learned coaching professional basketball in Japan, to all the time he’s delivered as a transformational speaker, to inform and inspire people to do more, and change more, like he did. Tracy is passionate about helping nurture and develop the innate potential that will make people productive and successful, having developed high energy programs from 30 years’ experience in business, media and professional sports.
Williams performed in one of the greatest spotlights in all of basketball as a Harlem Globetrotter and said “Charity Bounce provides a great opportunity to expand the programs that are making a difference for young people. The programs are innovative and show that the organisation has been able to deliver real outcomes for young people using basketball.”
Tracy is perfectly suited to the role of Global Ambassador, having shared his creative approach to success with thousands of people, including appearances in media and television, speaking to Fortune 500 companies, and presenting to the President and over 4000 people at a White House event. As Global Ambassador he has committed to harnessing the same drive that carried him all over the world playing basketball to provide opportunities to teach young people how to shoot, score and win big on and off the court.
Charity Bounce CEO, Ian Heininger, believes “the partnership with Tracy provides access to an inspirational speaker who will be a strong advocate for the young people we work with, inspiring positive change and promoting the strength based programs for more young people.”
