Sugar Ray Leonard to Inspire at AGS Conclave 2017

The American Gem Society is pleased to announce that celebrated boxing legend, Olympian and record-breaking world champion Sugar Ray Leonard will headline as one of the primary keynote speakers at the 2017 Conclave in Hollywood, CA, taking place April 5-8, 2017 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel. Mr. Leonard will speak at the general session breakfast during the Society’s 83rd Conclave on Friday morning, April 7th.

One of the most enthralling sports figures of our time, Sugar Ray Leonard faced the difficulties of life head-on and then swept them aside. Mr. Leonard took home Olympic gold and fought his way to world championships in five weight classes, a record still standing today. Voted “one of the top 25 athletes of the last 25 years” by ESPN, he is a successful entrepreneur who started his own sports promotion firm. He has also shared his success by fighting for a worthy cause. In 2009, Leonard and his wife founded the Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation to raise funds for research and awareness towards a cure for Type 1 Diabetes and to help children live healthier lives through diet and exercise.

Recently, the Hollywood spotlight turned to Mr. Leonard in the movie Hands of Stone. The legend is portrayed by Usher in the film, which was released in August.

“Mr. Leonard’s endurance, drive and record-breaking success are a source of inspiration for millions,” says Ruth Batson, CEO of AGS and AGS Laboratories. “We look forward to his presentation and his insights on persevering through adversity, and achieving his goals through hard work, passion and dedication…traits our members share!”
The AGS will be making more announcements in the near future regarding additional speakers, registration information, breakout sessions, and more.
