Keynote Speaker - Neelay Bhatt

Vice President, PROS Consulting INC.

NRPA Board of Directors


Neelay’s experience on four continents includes Disney, The Super Bowl, The Summer Olympics and Paralympics Games, besides years of consulting, public speaking and training. TEDx, the global platform for ideas, describes him as a business and communications visionary, and his service on the National Recreation and Park Association’s Board of Directors is committed to ensuring that ‘no child is left indoors’. Additionally, VisitIndy, America’s leading convention and visitors bureau, profiled him as one shaping the future of the City.


He believes in the ‘Power of One’ – one person / one action to change the world and his messages on empathetic leadership, magical customer service and the art of storytelling have benefited executives, professionals, and students from North America to China and from Europe to New Zealand.


Besides leading a TED Global workshop in Canada, presenting multiple TEDx talks and coaching TEDx presenters, he is a sought-after keynote speaker for parks and recreation, sports and events conferences globally.


He has led 130+ strategic and master planning, sports facility development, customer service training, and marketing and branding projects while focusing on innovation, partnerships, financial sustainability, and a guest experience of the highest quality. These projects have recommended facility development and infrastructure improvements totaling over $2 billion USD, and are helping to shape a better vision for parks, recreation, and sports all over the world.
