Biography

W Mitchell, who prefers to be called just "Mitchell," has told his story about overcoming seemingly insurmountable disaster to millions of people around the globe, including Parade Magazine, Time Magazine, USA Today, Good Morning America, The Today Show and Maury Povich.

Having overcome two life-threatening and life-changing accidents, the first a fiery motorcycle accident and the second an airplane crash, W Mitchell says, "Before I was paralyzed there were 10,000 things I could do. Now there are 9,000. I can either dwell on the 1,000 I've lost or focus on the 9,000 I have left." His remarkable message inspires audiences to shed self-imposed baggage and obstacles that prevent them from achieving their goals.

The title of W Mitchell's book is also his philosophy on life, It's Not What Happens to You...It's What You do About It. This expert on taking responsibility for change shows audiences how to gain perspective, how to cope, and how to prosper with personal and professional change.

W Mitchell speaks about the battles and the victories of life: co-founding a metal casting company that put thousands of people to work, his election as mayor and being a congressional nominee, a fiery motorcycle accident that left him burned over 65% of his body, and the airplane crash that took away his ability to walk. W Mitchell speaks with passion about the human spirit, focusing on the positives of change, taking responsibility, and the proven result...himself.

Across the globe, from the Indian Ocean to Indiana, from presidents to parliaments and from non-profits to multinational giants, audiences herald his thought-provoking words about perseverance and becoming more than just a survivor. W Mitchell has spoken to audiences in Africa, Asia, Australia, and Alabama, and for corporations, companies, conferences, and clubs. He opens participant's minds with stories and anecdotes, as he speaks with enthusiasm and tells his own poignant story.

The former Marine also worked as a gripman on the San Francisco cable cars, and was twice elected mayor of Crested Butte, Colorado, where he won worldwide recognition as "The Mayor Who Saved a Mountain." W Mitchell has been inducted into the Speakers Hall of Fame and awarded the Council of Peers Award for Excellence (CPAE), which is the pinnacle of recognition in platform speaking. W Mitchell earned an executive masters in Public Administration from the University of Colorado, and has offices in Colorado and Australia, and lives in California and Hawaii.
