Mike Schlappi – CSP, MBA, Author, Gold Medalist, Hall of Fame

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!

Mike 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). 901-754-9404

"If You Can't Stand Up, Stand Out"

"If You Can't Stand Up, Stand Out", helps his audience realize that the best way to predict their future is to create it. His message includes humor and motivation as he tells his personal story -- A story that began with a tragic shooting accident has evolved into a lifetime of lessons and victories. Although Mike was paralyzed, his dreams were not. Mike uses a media presentation and his Paralympic medals to teach his "Bulletproof Principles for Success".

"Attitude Therapy!"

Mike inspires his audiences with a powerful dose of his patented "Attitude Therapy". He builds a strong case for getting started and taking personal responsibility for their successes and failures. Mike's example and entertaining style will challenge everyone to relish adversity as an opportunity to change and improve. People will learn to love themselves from the inside out and walk away with the realization that if Mike can do it, so can they!
