Michael is one of few men to be diagnosed with breast cancer. Told he’d never regain full use of his arm, he asked if he could climb a mountain. He was told that while it was possible, the chances of success were slim. Michael responded by trekking across an Alaskan glacier and climbing two mountain peaks – thereby turning possibility into reality. The following year he climbed 18,000’ to the base camp of Mt. Everest In 2006, he reached the 19,344’ summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in East Africa. He speaks about the power of the possible; about defying the odds; and how to build strong support systems. These lessons are valuable not only in personal life but also in business life. Whether you are an individual looking for Inspiration from a cancer survivor or an executive looking for a powerful presentation for your next meeting.
Michael is highly regarded as a health and productivity speaker who can help shape your strategic plan, deliver your message, and most important, achieve your goals.
