When the "face" of your sport is a Wilhelmina model, you know you're off to a good start. Lisa Leslie is undoubtedly the most-recognized player of both the WNBA and Team USA, who brought considerably more than a stunning visage and statuesque body to the court. Throughout her storied career Leslie was the absolute most dominant player in the women's game.
Leslie carried the gold-winning Team USA in 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008. With the 2008 gold medal, she became the first team sport athlete to win four consecutive Olympic Gold Medals. In 2001, Leslie was the first WNBA player to win the regular season MVP, the All-Star Game MVP and the playoff MVP in the same season. That same year she also led the Los Angeles Sparks to their first WNBA Championship. In 2002, she became the WNBA all-time leading scorer, was named MVP of the regular season for the second year in a row in leading the Sparks to their first their first back-to-back championship, and shocked the world with the first slam-dunk in WNBA history. Leslie would go on to win her third MVP trophy of the WNBA in 2006. Leslie is the first woman to slam-dunk in a professional game. Leslie was inducted into both the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, and the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame, in 2015.
Leslie became a commentator for ESPN in 2004, and has since been an in-studio sports analyst for ABC, Turner, Fox Sports Net, Fox Florida, and NBC. She is currently a co-host of CBS Sports' "We Need To Talk", and the reigning Coach of the Year of the BIG3. Leslie also starred in the Lionsgate film Uncle Drew alongside NBA superstar Kyrie Irving and NBA legends Shaquille O'Neal and Reggie Miller, released in June 2018.
Leslie authored her own book "Don't Let the Lipstick Fool You" in 2008, and in 2010 became the first WNBA player turned Co-Owner of the Los Angeles Sparks. In 2012, she both received her Masters in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix and launched the Leslie Leslie Basketball & Leadership Academy.
Leslie resides with her husband, Michael Lockwood, and two kids Lauren Jolie and Michael Joseph, in Boca Raton, Florida.

I would highly recommend Lisa Leslie as a high school speaker (She did a moderated discussion, facilitated by two of our students, which was wonderful.). She is sooo good with young people. So many good messages and she was so patient with one of the students who was losing her place with a question. When she said something like, "Sorry, I'm thinking through this..." Lisa said, "Keep going, you're doing great!" She was calm, fun, loves to laugh, and had a lot of wisdom to share.

Lisa Leslie was enthusiastic and passionate - and very easy to work with on approvals and content. Some of the feedback we got was that she could go off track a bit, but all in all, we had a positive experience!

I have worked with many agencies to book guest speakers over the past 5 years. My experience with AAE has been the best. The website, search facilitation software, and speaker briefs were great. The follow-up and support from the sales agent and logistics manager were excellent. We will no doubt be in touch next year.
