If you want someone to motivate your group to do more than you ever dreamed possible, then look no further than Jay Platt.
Jay doesn't talk theory, or discuss things he's only read about, or was taught of in school. And he doesn't tell the same tired old stories you've probably already heard a hundred times.
Rather, he speaks from a first-hand knowledge of what it takes to keep going in the face of almost overwhelming adversity, and to accomplish the seemingly impossible. And he'll teach you and you organization how to do exactly the same.
In 1998, after fifteen years of service, a rare cancer syndrome attacked his eyes, brain, spinal cord, and kidneys — suddenly bringing his Marine Corps career to a screeching halt.
Down, but not defeated, he reinvented himself and went on to become an accomplished adventure athlete, while raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities in the process.
He was one of less than 300 people to southbound thru-hike the Appalachian Trail, is one of only 3 people to swim from Alcatraz to San Francisco with his hands and feet tied, and is the only person in history to swim across the Mississippi River while handcuffed, shackled, and blindfolded!
Jay is the author of several books and audios, including his top-selling, No Matter What! How to be Unstoppable, Despite the Obstacles, Starting Today, and he is the subject of the new documentary film, Living Unstoppable.
His powerful message has motivated thousands of people, in organizations like IBM, TAP Pharmaceuticals, and the U.S. Naval Academy. And he can do the same for you.
