Citius, Altius, Fortius. These three Latin words are the foundation of the Olympic movement. They make up the dogged determination mindset of Olympians and Paralympians. They are the press that pushes athletes to pursue despite the obstacles in the way.

If Olympic and Paralympic athletes are training the same way four years from now the way they are training today, they have already lost the gold medal.

If you are trying to grow your speaking business the same way you grew it four years ago, you are already behind.

So then, what lessons can be learned to from Olympians and Paralympian to deploy in your speaking business and what systems can be engaged to reach one’s own speaker medal podium?

John Register, a three time Olympic hopeful in the sport of track and field, and a silver medalist in the Long Jump at the Paralympic Games, shares how sports and speaking are similar and how we all can elevate to win more business by applying just a few of values and tactics of Olympians and Paralympians.


By the end of the session you will leave with:

  • 3 tactics to always leave an audience remembering you.
  • Greater determination to grow your business.
  • A desire to help others on their journey.
  • A blueprint for a killer keynote speech.

John’s story: From Olympic hopeful to amputee in a single week

John is a four-time all-American collegiate track athlete, a two-time Olympic Trials Qualifier, and a United States Army Gulf War Veteran.

But while training for his dream of becoming an Olympic hurdler, one misstep over a hurdle in a practice session left him with a life-changing choice: Live the rest of his life in a wheelchair or amputate his left leg.

John chose to amputate his leg and be fitted with a prosthesis. For any other athlete, this could have been devastating, but John found a way to create a new normal.

He rehabilitated by swimming. 22 months later he made the Paralympic swim team. It was at the Paralympic Games, in Atlanta, John was introduced to Paralympic track and field. Four years later, he won the Paralympic silver medal in the long jump in Sydney, Australia.

His talk, “embrace the new normal,” takes a deep dive into three areas which lead us from fear to freedom.

John is an international professional speaker who honed his craft as a facilitator. He says, “As a professional speaker, I like to think of my style as the facilitator for the brilliance already in the room.”
