John grew up in Milford, CT and lived like any average teenager would up until the day that changed his life forever. To save his life, doctors had no choice but to amputate his legs due to a rare bacterial infection. For the past five years, John has been traveling the country, speaking about his experiences at organizations.
John's keynote speeches focus on leadership, positivity, teamwork, and overcoming adversity. His presentations empower and challenge audiences to reach and surpass their goals. John begins by speaking about his personal experiences: from the day he was told that he would never walk again, through his journey of recovery, to becoming the first full leg amputee in history to run and complete a marathon without the aid of a wheelchair. John uses these life lessons to inspire his listeners to succeed and overcome their own obstacles. If your company is looking for a speaker to have a profoundly positive impact on the audience and help further mold the culture of your company with a "will do" attitude, then John is right for you.
