“I deeply appreciate your in-depth preparation and your ability to use information gathered to make a more effective, personalized presentation.”

Ray W. Owen, State Farm Insurance
Tony Robbins

“W Mitchell has refused to be overcome by two life-threatening and life-changing accidents–disastrous events, which, if given the power, could have ruled his life to its end. Instead, he decided to make the tragedies that befell him a starting point. When he says, ‘It’s not what happens to you in life, it’s what you do about it’, you can be sure that he is a living, breathing example of that message to us.

Anthony Robbins
Og Mandino

“Mitchell is the soul of inspiration.”

Og Mandino
Chicken Soup for the Soul

“Mitchell is one of the most inspirational speakers we have ever met.”

Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Authors of Chicken Soup for the Soul

You kept our audience spellbound throughout your story and I know it touched each of us in different ways… I want to express our profound appreciation for getting us to focus on what we can do.”


“Mitchell shows you how to turn your defeats into challenges and your challenges into victories.”

Patricia S. Schroeder, Former Congressman from Colorado

“Mitchell’s story is a moving tribute to the power of the human spirit.”

Jack Kemp, Former Secretary of HUD

“Words seem inadequate when it comes to expressing the profound impact your remarks had on the attendees of our meeting. Motivating a sales force is hard work. We give them compensation, incentives, tools and programs, but sales people need so much more. You reminded us clearly that we can make choices even under tough circumstances, that we can overcome adversity by celebrating what we learn from diversity.”

David Murray and Joanne Bauer, Kimberly-Clark

“Your ability to connect with an audience, who quickly become your friends, is remarkable. Your presentation skills, timing and style are superb. NASA sees a lot of briefings, and yours ranks in the ‘best of the best’.”

Kenneth J. Szalai, Director, NASA Dryden Flight Research Center
Envision International

“AWESOME! Mitchell wasn’t great… he was AWESOME!”

Matt Freese, President of Envision International
Texas Health Care Association

“On a pragmatic note, I appreciate the fact that you make it so easy to work with you. Frankly, I just don’t do business with speakers who expect to be treated like rock stars. You not only have a lot to say, your personal character and conduct underscores your message. It was a pleasure working with you.”

Jane S. Baker, LMSW Director of Education, Texas Health Care Association

“You had their attention all through the hour… right to the standing ovation at the end of your talk. Your presentation was the glue that held together all the other parts of the meeting. You received rave reviews from the management team and the pharmaceutical company guests invited to the meeting.”

Robert McHugh, President, Rx Distributions Solutions, Inc.
Illinois Health Care Association

The audience was deeply impressed by your story of triumph over tragedy. Although they don’t know it, they were also impressed by the skill of a master speaker who knows an audience before he even meets them, then reads them perfectly so that even the silences have meaning.”

Dana Saal, CMP, Director of Education, Illinois Health Care Association

“Two Thumbs Up.” “A Five-Star Presentation.” “Heartwarming, compassionate, enlightening.” “The wake up call we all needed.” These are among the comments received following your presentation in San Francisco this past Friday. From each and all of us at TV Fanfare, thank you for sharing your life with us. You have saved us years of self-education in the school of hard knocks.”

Keith Sonne, Sr. Vice President, TV Fanfare
US West

“Mitchell’s impact has been extraordinary. The following day we were all talking about his message and more importantly, NOW… over three months since his presentation, we are still responding. He helped remind us that attitude and great performance have a direct correlation, and his ability to relate is among the best of any I’ve ever seen.”

Randy Lunch, Vice President Marketing, US West
Smith, Bucklin & Associates

“Thank you for the OUTSTANDING presentation to our group. As you know, PCMA can be a pretty tough crowd to impress. In my opinion, and in the opinion of many others, your presentation was the highlight of our conference.”

Smith, Bucklin & Associates

“In the ‘seminar business’ we have to work with a lot of ‘egos’ and difficult people. Despite his considerable physical handicaps, Mitchell was one of the nicest people we’ve ever worked with.”

William Oakes, DDS, CEO, Excellence in Dentistry, Inc.
Ameriprise Financial

The response to your message was extremely positive! To this day, advisors who heard you speak still thank me for inviting you here.”

David S. Kreager, CFP, Group Vice President, American Express Financial Advisors, Inc.
State Farm Insurance

“I’ve been having these meetings three times a year for the last few years, and none of our previous meetings have received the kind of positive reaction this one did.”

W. Donald Sullivan, State Farm Insurance
Maricopa Community Colleges

“It has been just over a month that you spoke to our Success Conference and our folks are still talking about the positive effects of the day. I’ve had numerous people tell me that the October 1 conference was one of the best we’ve ever had in the 12 years we’ve been sponsoring the conference. This is largely due to your warm, inspiring, challenging and authentic message.”

Michael (Mike) Rooney, Ph.D., District Director of Student Development Services, Maricopa Community Colleges
State Farm Insurance

“Your presentation… provided us a tremendous opportunity to stop, reflect upon our strengths, give thanks for our many blessings, and inspire us to more fully utilize the opportunity we are so fortunate to have before us.”
