Lying on a bed paralyzed, with a bullet hole in his chest, Mike Schlappi 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!

Mr. Schlappi 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 Schlappi 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).

Mr. Schlappi's latest book is Shot Happens--I Got Shot, What's Your Problem (2009). He is also the author of Bulletproof Principles for Personal Success, which is about his true story of courage, conquering, and hope and Motivational Leaders, co-authored by a group of well-known motivational speakers.

Mr. Schlappi has his life, health, and securities licenses. He is a managing partner in a financial planning firm, and has his MBA from Arizona State University giving him credibility in the financial industry. He has had much success inspiring and motivating sales forces and support personnel within these organizations.

As a paraplegic due to a gunshot accident as a teenager, Mike Schlappi was the recipient of quality healthcare. This experience pointed him to a career in healthcare administration. He earned advanced degrees and went on to spend 10 years as the Director of Rehabilitation at IHC.

Mr. Schlappi comes from a family of educators. He taught Liberal Arts at Arizona State University while earning his MBA with an emphasis in Healthcare Administration. More importantly, his presentations center around the support he received from his friends, teachers, and family as he put his life back together.

Mike Schlappi's motivating and entertaining story will make your audiences laugh...and cry.
