John's story is so riveting. Not only did he survive but he learned to LIVE. That is a lesson everyone needs to learn.

Dave Ramsey, New York Times best-selling author and radio host

“I have been involved in putting together four National Sales Meetings for Stryker Biotech and we have had a variety of speakers, from a POW to an astronaut to a special ops military person – all heroes of some sort. Although they had interesting stories of how they overcame their situation to prevail, non was as compelling or personal as your story. I think I speak for the whole audience when I tell you that it was the most meaningful for all of us.”

Kathy Beard, Director, Marketing and Sales Education, Stryker Biotech

“The evaluation summary from John’s talk at our conference is hands-down the best summary I have ever compiled. I am not a bit surprised. He was amazing! His presentation was undoubtedly the high point of the entire event. He changed lives that day, as I am sure he does whenever he tells his story.”

Kristin Holt, Acute & Emergency Care Pediatrics Conference, Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt

Of the many Annual Meetings I have been involved in over the years, I thought John's presentation was one of the best, if not THE best, I have witnessed. His message hit home with the vast majority of the audience. I heard rave reviews from the membership. He would have my utmost recommendation!

Larry Jansen, President, Grinnell Mutual Reinsurance Company
