YOUniversity with DeMaurice Smith & David Siteman Garland

We are extremely excited to announce our inaugural cadre event, featuring highly sought-after speaker DeMaurice Smith, Executive Director of the NFL Players Association. De will be joined in conversation with our special guest, Internet celebrity David Siteman Garland, creator and host of Internet-based channel, blog and resource The Rise To The Top.

About DeMaurice Smith

dsmithDe will share his professional journey, which began at the US Attorney’s Office, where he prosecuted more than 80 jury trials and handled some of the most significant homicide, narcotics and white collar investigations in the history of that office. He then spent time as a Partner at two of the largest international law firms, Latham & Watkins and Patton & Boggs. De now represents the players of the NFL (past and present) and is finally coming up for air after spending the better part of the last two years negotiating with the owners and management of the National Football League on behalf of his players. The new Collective Bargaining Agreement is not only a guarantee of labor peace and Sunday Football for the next ten years, but is also generally acknowledged as a great win for all the parties, current and former players and NFL owners alike. De emulates what cadre is about. He is a connector who believes in “paying it forward” without any expectations, and his generosity and willingness to help almost surely contributed to his ending up with what a lot of people would consider to be their dream job.
