I think Peyton Manning could get used to earning money for these types of engagements.
According to the Tulsa World, Manning was paid a nice hefty fee of $105,000 for a 30-minute speech and a 30-minute question-and-answer session at the university.
The money was paid by the OSU Speakers Board.
Manning gave his speech to 4,250 people inside Oklahoma State’s basketball gym, Gallagher-Iba Arena on Wednesday night. Never known to be the most motivating guy around, Manning did his best to uplift those in Stillwater.
“This is your world,” Manning said. “Own it.”
“I challenge each of you in this arena tonight to invest your time to become a game-changer,” Manning said. “A gamer-changer looks deeper and senses something others don’t and then acts on it.”
“You either get better or worse every day,” Manning recalled one of his college coaches telling him. “You don’t stay the same.”
There was debate on campus as to whether Manning was worth the price tag to bring him to Stillwater.
