Expected to die, John O'Leary now teaches others how to truly live.
In 1987, John O'Leary was a curious nine-year-old boy. Playing with fire and gasoline, John created a massive explosion in his home and was burned on 100% of his body. He was given a one percent chance to live. He has since survived and thrived - as a college graduate, business owner, author, husband and father. John is proof of the power of the human spirit.
As an internationally acclaimed speaker, John shares his message with an average of 50,000 people at more than 120 live events each year. John's clients include Southwest Airlines, LEGO, Verizon Wireless, Enterprise and many others.
John's first book, ON FIRE: The Seven Choices to Ignite a Radically Inspired Life publishes March 15, 2016 by North Star Way, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.
With emotional story-telling and great humor, John reminds audiences of the significance of daily attitudes, the power of personal choices and the profound impact of our actions. He reawakens each audience member to realize the gift of today and the possibility of tomorrow.
