Alex Kip's Kindness Cards Challenge
Alex Kip- Public Speaking Reel
Alex Kip is a personal development coach, speaker, singer, and author of “My Other Voice,“ named “Best of the Best” by the Detroit Free Press. During Alex’s senior year of college, about to embark on a Broadway career, he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer, lost his singing voice, and told he had a 15-30% chance of survival. Now in complete remission with his singing voice restored, he is a leading voice in teaching others how to overcome unbeatable odds. He’s been called a “Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Hero” and has spread his message of hope to major clients like UnitedHealthcare, Nationwide Insurance, and the University of Michigan as a leading expert on personal development, young adult cancer, and the arts. Alex has been featured on PBS, NPR Stations, the Huffington Post, Syfy, Chiller TV, feature films like “The Avengers,” and stages across the country. His unique understanding of survivorship, blended with his performance training from the University of Michigan, and training as a Tony Robbins-Cloe Madanes Strategic Interventionist is reinventing the way organizations and individuals think.
So how did he get here? Since Alex was six he’s been performing on stages, eventually ending up at the University of Michigan in the best musical theatre program in the country. He thought he was Superman, his superpower was his voice… then, everything changed…
Two weeks before graduation, he was diagnosed with cancer and later told he had a 15-30% chance of survival. But for him, the worst news had already been realized: during his treatment, he lost his singing voice. Suddenly Superman was falling from the sky, as kryptonite found it’s way into his body. Still, he knew he would fly again if he fought with all he had. And he did. For over two years he fought with all his strength and survived!
Now in complete remission with his voice restored, he’s combining his story, performance skills, and coaching style as a Tony Robbins-Cloe Madanes Certification student to reinvent the way organizations and people think. Given a second chance at life, he knows his talents are meant to contribute to the world at large rather than for his own personal gain. From giving keynotes at conferences like the UnitedHealthcare National Conference to emceeing major events like Pelotonia for over 7,000 people, he’s living out that vision.
More importantly, he teaches others how to live out that vision! For instance, after speaking at the UnitedHealthcare National Conference he started a kindness card revolution where over 300 cards were written for patients in need giving birth to larger kindness card initiative within the company. Alex is obsessed with making his message unique by delivering powerful content through engaging stories, content, songs, and videos that will challenge and change you.
His biggest hope is that everyone follows their bliss and shines their light on this world. Through direct interaction, he’ll show you how to spread light in other people's darkness.

“Thank you Alex, it was a pleasure hearing your story and meeting you, you are a true inspiration and I hope your speaking endeavors multiply by the thousands from this exposure.”
CEO University of Michigan Health System
“Alex Kip is the epitome of courage. In the face of having his Broadway dreams destroyed, he adapted to his new reality and turned it into a way to evolve and reinvent himself as a person and as an artist. It can be easy to give up and become a victim of circumstance. It is not easy to confront and surmount obstacles that get in the way of your dreams. Yet, that’s what Alex has done. Alex’s story is not unlike many we encounter all of the time in our Health System. Day in and day out, we engage with people who are dealing with scary and stressful life-altering and life-threatening situations. Let’s be honest – we deliver a lot of bad news. But, more often than not, in the face of that bad news and the journey that follows, we are privileged to witness and experience transformational moments of strength, survival and courage. Nothing is more inspiring.”
