Lying on a bed paralyzed, with a bullet hole in his chest, Mike promised that if he survived, he would share his unique story all over the world and help as many people as he could. This is happening!- Keynote Speaker Mike Schlappi-

As a speaker Mike Schlappi knows that the most important part of any meeting or organization is the people. Whether speaking to a global financial corporation or a community medical facility, he has seen their results change when the beliefs of their people change. He inspires real people, with real problems, to respond differently; teaching that attitude is not a mood, but a position we take regardless of circumstances. That is his specialty!

Obviously Mike has had a few challenges in his life. But he also has a few Olympic gold medals, a few college degrees, has written a few books, runs a few successful businesses, has a few passions and has a few kids (five to be exact). This is all possible because he “walks the talk” (or rolls the scroll).

If You Can’t Stand Up, Stand Out

When keynote speaker Mike Schlappi takes the floor, a dazzling smile greets you. Then, you notice the wheelchair. If ever a man was defined by what he can do, instead of what he cannot do, it is Mike. His award winning Keynote Presentation speaks to just about everyone.  Using entertaining and inspiring stories and real life photos, along with his Olympic Medals, Mike brings you along on his journey of success.  You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be inspired to be a “Stand Out”.

 

#1 With A Bullet

Mike’s entertaining and inspiring story motivates people to become better. Better spouses, better employees, better friends, better parents – you get the picture.   His theory is: When we resist change we fail. When we accept change, we survive. When we create change, we succeed.   Mike’s keynote; “#1 With a Bullet” offers vision to what we can become.

 

A Bullet Proof Mindset is No Accident

Mike Schlappi’s story is a moving and powerful example of the importance of safety.  At the age of 15 Mike was shot in the chest, by a friend, at point blank range; paralyzing 2/3 of his body.  Mike faces challenges daily because of the split second decision that was made in regards to safety or the lack of.  His compelling, motivating and inspiring message changes the way people think about carelessness and the magnitude of their decisions.

 

Attitude Therapy: Rx for the Healthcare Industry

Mike’s personal experiences with nurses, doctors and therapists not only saved his life, but also pointed him to a career in healthcare.  He served as the Director of Rehabilitation for Intermountain Healthcare in Salt Lake City for 10 years, giving him credibility with audiences in the healthcare arena.

 

Your people are your greatest asset: invest in them.

Mike knows that the most important part of any meeting or organization is the people.  Whether speaking to a global financial corporation or a local credit union, he has seen their results change when the beliefs of their people change.  He inspires real people, with real problems, to respond differently; teaching that attitude is not a mood, but a position we take regardless of circumstances.  That is his specialty!
