Almon Gunter is CEO and president of Almon Gunter Motivates Inc. He is a highly acclaimed motivational, inspirational public speaker, author, and consultant, as well as a former world-class sprinter in track. He is the author of three books: “Focus on the Final Seconds and Win the Game of Life,” a how-to book on achieving both mental and physical fitness success in life; “Focus To Win” analyzes personal traits needed to build a strong foundation for success and “The Essence of Teamwork” outlines the eight principles of a winning team.
