This expert on taking responsibility for change shows his audiences not only how to gain perspective, but how to cope, and even better, to prosper with personal and professional change.

W Mitchell knows about challenge, change and courage—all first hand. He speaks to you about the battles and the victories of life. From co-founding a metal castings company that put thousands to work, from his election as mayor and congressional nominee, from a fiery motorcycle accident that left him burned over 65% of his body, and from the airplane crash that took away his ability to walk, Mitchell now soars above the rest with grace, good humor and gumption.

Mitchell speaks with passion about the human spirit. He focuses on the positives of change—taking responsibility—and the proven result—himself. “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.”

He delivers from the heart, with warmth, wit and wisdom. You’ll hear an unforgettable speaker with an invaluable message.
