John  O'Leary

John O'Leary

John began speaking in 2005 to a total of eight organizations. Since then, John has partnered with over 850 organizations in 46 states and nine countries. His life is proof of the power of the human spirit. At nine years old, he was burned on 100% of his body and given less than one percent chance of surviving the first night. He endured months in the hospital, years in therapy, dozens of surgeries, and lost all of his fingers to amputation. As a boy in a hospital bed, John could not have foreseen his many accomplishments. Yet his experiences throughout the journey are what fuel the incredible compassion and authenticity that are evident in every presentation he gives focused on personal awareness, clarity of purpose and personal mastery.
