NOTED NFL commentator and analyst Steve Wyche and high-profile Atlanta Sport Media and Entertainment attorney David Cornwell Sr will join power speakers at this year's Business of Sport International Conference scheduled for May 1 and 2 at the Jamaica Pegasus hotel in Kingston.

"I am excited, for both gentlemen have undoubtedly the knowledge and experience to ignite the conference," said Carole Beckford, president of Business of Sport.

Wyche, known in NFL circles as an incisive commentator with balanced views, and lauded for his wealth of experience, will address the conference on policing commercial and marketing rights at sporting events and protecting them in athletes.

Cornwell, a member of the board of directors of the Sports Lawyers Association, is considered to be one of the premier attorneys in the United States for professional athletes, coaches, teams, sport executives, agencies and franchises. He is a household name in the NFL and Major League Baseball and will speak on the topic 'I own my face and intellect: Protecting and monetising your image and intellectual proprietary rights in sport'.

Currently, Cornwell is representing Jonathan Martin of the Miami Dolphins in the high-profile case in which Martin alleges he was bullied by his teammates.

The conference is hosted by Carole Beckford & Associates and Strategic Corporate Interventions Limited and is this year celebrating its fourth anniversary.
