Mike Ditka, NFL Hall of Famer and Chicago Bears coach, will deliver the keynote address at the United Fresh 2015 General Session, set for Wednesday, June 10, 2015, at McCormick Place in Chicago IL. He will share insights from his decades of experience as an NFL player, coach, and analyst on the importance of leadership and the value of teamwork. Ditka’s name is synonymous with the Chicago Bears. Known as “Da Coach” or “Iron Mike,” he played for and coached the Bears for 17 seasons. Over a single decade (1982-92), he coached the Bears compiling a win-loss record of 112-68 during that time. He guided the Bears to six NFC Central Divisional titles, in addition to three NFC title games. Most notably, the 1985 Bears are considered amongst the NFL’s “Best-Ever Teams” going 18-1 that year culminating with the Super Bowl XX title.
Twice, Ditka was named the NFL’s Coach of the Year (1985 and 1988). From 1985-1988, he led the Bears to 52 wins – the most ever by an NFL team in a four-year span in NFL history. He left the Bears football organization in 1992. Ditka has won three Super Bowls, as a player (Dallas, Super Bowl VI), as an assistant coach, (Dallas, Super Bowl XII), and as a head coach (Chicago Super Bowl XX). He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1988. Continuing to play a notable role in the NFL, Ditka serves as a commentator and analyst for ESPN. The keynote address will be held at the General Session June 10, from 7:30 am to 8:45 am in the Vista Ballroom at the McCormick Place Convention Center. Participation in the keynote session is available only to those attendees who have purchased United Fresh’s educational packages. Co-located with FMI Connect 2015 and the International Floriculture Expo, United Fresh 2015 will bring together retail, fresh produce, and floral leaders searching for unique products and looking to enhance relationships with business partners. Registration is available at www.unitedfreshshow.org.
