Nosa Eguae is a former collegiate national champion, and professional football player turned TEDx speaker, social entrepreneur, and philanthropist. Eguae’s transition from sport came in the Fall of 2014. A journey that found Eguae riddled with insecurity, and blinded by a lack of self-trust, would soon lead to a purpose awakening—a reinvention that would take Eguae to the top of his field in the healthcare industry; while leveraging his experience to help hundreds of athletes in their transition post sport.
Widely regarded across sectors for his expertise in leadership development, diversity and inclusion, and social impact; Eguae maximizes his gift as a storyteller to shed light on the epidemic that athletes face in the extremely difficult yet inevitable transition from sport.
Eguae holds a Bachelor's degree in Communication and Business from Auburn University’s Harbert College of Business.
