and Bestselling Author

When motivational speaker Mike Schlappi takes the floor, a dazzling smile greets you. Then you notice the wheelchair. If ever a man was defined by what he can do instead of what he can’t do, it’s Gold Medalist and Author Mike Schlappi.
 
At the age of 14, Mike had expectations of a career in sports as a top notch athlete. A gunshot to the chest at point blank range challenged his dreams. He would never walk again. After months of rigorous physical therapy, he began playing basketball from his wheelchair and went on to become a standout athlete.

What do you get when you combine comedic talent with corporate know-how? A couple of funny motivational speakers who understand people.

A long time ago (in a galaxy not so far away) Tim and Kris O’Shea honed their comedic skills in comedy clubs and theaters by night, while working in sales, training, and HR by day. They learned the importance of laughter to connect with others and to deal with the stress of a constantly changing work environment.

Their experience in the workplace now enables them to use these skills on their mission to boost moral while motivating their audiences to thrive in a changing world.

Voted top motivational speakers by Speakers Platform four consecutive years, Tim and Kris O’Shea described as “Saturday Night Live for Business”.
