Published

on

PROGRAM 15 continues to push the game of baseball and its amateur athletes into new territories through innovation by partnering with ProPlayAI as the Official Biomechanics Player Development Partner for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series.

ProPlayAI is a leading human motion intelligence company that brings lab-grade biomechanics data and insights to users’ fingertips through proprietary computer vision software that captures data directly from a smartphone.

“We used to need a full biomechanics lab, or complex multi-camera systems to deliver these types of reports in the past, but with PitchAI – one camera is all we need to deliver an accurate biomechanics assessment to identify deficiencies, strengths, and areas for development in these top prospects.” says ProPlayAI’s Chief Scientist, Dr. Michael Sonne “Working with PROGRAM15 puts the technology in the hands of some of the top prospects, and we’re excited to be a part of their development process- both in practice, bullpens, and games.”

With the new partnership, ProPlayAI Biomechanical analysis feedback will be captured in real-time and incorporated into PROGRAM 15’s player evaluation model for select New Balance Future Stars Series events, including:

NBFSS Regional Combines
NBFSS Underclass Combine
NBFSS National and World Combines
NBFSS Underclass Elite
NBFSS Caribbean Classic
NBFSS Main Event at Fenway Park

PROGRAM 15 Founder, CEO and President of Baseball Operations for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series, Jeremy Booth, says, “We’re excited to take this step with ProPlayerAI toward better analysis designed to be used for player growth. It’s cutting edge technology, and this relationship continues our mission to wade through the noise and ineffectiveness of the market at large and focus on what truly has impact and longevity.”

Players attending New Balance Future Stars Series select events will have ProPlayAI Biomechanical analysis feedback included in their P15 Scouting Reports as well as their player profiles on PROGRAM 15’s proprietary Scouting Database, which is available to college recruiting staff and pro scouts.

PROGRAM 15 Scouting Reports are just one of the reasons Future Stars Series Scouting and Evaluation events have built a reputation as the most comprehensive amateur baseball player identification and development experiences available. Backed by decades of Pro Baseball experience, PROGRAM 15’s National Staff of former Major League and professional players, scouts, and coaches provide in-depth and credible evaluations that are trusted by Major League scouts and college coaches across the country.

Premier Travel Founder Anne Kulhanek Reveals How To Plan A Bucket List Vacation On Influencers Radio

Published

on

On a recent episode of Influencers Radio with Jack Mize, Anne Kulhanek, founder of Premier Travel, talks about how she is helping travelers, especially those 50 and over, plan once-in-a-lifetime bucket list vacations.

Since the COVID-19 travel shutdowns, would-be vacationers have been cooped up for a long time. Now that much of the world is opening up, they are ready to get out and about.

While planning a vacation was a DIY exercise for many before the shutdowns, things have certainly changed. More and more discerning travelers aren’t willing to jeopardize their vacation experience trying to navigate travel restrictions and COVID protocols on their own. Instead, they are turning to pros like Anne Kulhanek.

Specializing in once-in-a-lifetime bucket list vacations, Anne’s team at Premier Travel amplifies traveler’s vacation dreams beyond what they thought was possible. Her vacations are never cookie cutter and always customized.

During the interview, Anne explained that what makes a trip ‘once in a lifetime’ is defined by her clients, saying, “Luxury for everyone is so different. The word luxury is commonly used in travel, and it’s funny because every travel supplier considers themselves to be luxury. But it really is defined by you. For you, luxury might be a first-class airline ticket to Europe, and staying in a penthouse suite at a certain hotel. For somebody else, luxury might be traveling to Ireland just being among the locals, staying at an authentic hotel, and meeting the owner of a little pub. So luxury really is, in my opinion, about doing what you want to do in the way that you want to do it. Whether it’s off the beaten path or an iconic place that’s very popular, it is about you, what you want out of this trip, and what’s customized just for you.”

With over two decades of travel agency experience, Anne’s strong relationships with quality travel providers, along with her network of local partners and guides, ensures her clients have the trip of a lifetime. As independent agents, Anne’s team at Premier Travel works on behalf of their clients, shopping and selecting travel providers who will deliver exactly what they need and at the best price.

“I have always felt that good communication is what differentiates those who advance within their organizations or their profession vs. those who don’t,” said Scott Reddig, Christian Care Ministry CEO. “You can be great at your job, but if you can’t explain to others what you do or what you are proposing, it limits your effectiveness. I encourage all our employees to take advantage of Toastmasters. It undoubtedly can help your career.”

 “When I was elected club president in the middle of a pandemic, I knew it would be challenging as our employees were all working remotely at the time. But being surrounded by a team of strong club officers and with the continued support from the leaders in our organization, we have been able to not just sustain our club, but thrive by adding new members,” says Rebecca Barrack, Acts2Speak Club President and Asst. Manager of Communications at Christian Care Ministry.

Headquartered in Englewood, Colo., Toastmaster’s International membership exceeds 357,000 in more than 16,600 clubs in 143 countries. Since 1924, Toastmasters International has helped people from diverse backgrounds become more confident speakers, communicators, and leaders.
