About Speaker John Register…

People have the courage to change their lives after hearing John’s presentation.

Guaranteed to be one of the most authentic, riveting, edge of your seat, presentations, that will inspire you and your team to create the new normal.

John’s authenticity means your team will not be listening to a talking head who shares stories and examples from other peoples experience; it will be 100% John.

John also couples his presentation style be not being a talking head, as he puts it, “I’m not the talking head expert, I am the facilitator of the brilliance already in the room. Together we discover what is greater.” – John Register

Testimonial: “John is one of those rare authentic inspirational catalysts who make you believe anything is possible. As the first female amputee of the Iraq War, it was John Register who totally changed my direction in life. He is one of those rare individuals who makes everyone believe anything is possible.” -Melissa Stockwell, United States Army, Purple Heart recipient, bronze medalist, 2016 Paralympic Games, Triathlon

What happens when a four-time all-American collegiate track athlete; 2 times Olympic Trials Qualifier; and United States Army Gulf War Veteran; suffers a career-ending injury and then subsequently has his left leg amputated?

Well, for John Register, just 27 months post surgery he qualified and made the Paralympic swim team. Four years later, after re-learning how to run on a prosthesis, John ran and jumped into the history books winning the long jump silver medal in Sydney, Australia.

John now uses the lessons he learned about change management, competitive advantage, and resilience to demonstrate to business leaders and sport collegiate professionals the process of hurdling Adversity and creating a new normal in life.

John has a unique ability to take the lessons he learned and make them relevant to each audience. His dynamic, authentic and engaging personality coupled with his expertise to facilitate real change during his presentation, makes him a highly sought after experiential speaker and trainer. It is probably why he was asked to give not one, but two, TEDx talks.

  • “What a privilege to have John Register as our keynote speaker for Disability Employment Awareness Month at Southwest Airlines! Not only did John candidly and powerfully share his own story, but he also challenged our employees to think critically about everything from the opportunity around employing People with Disabilities to the various ways to create mindset shift and advance the conversation. He is truly a change management expert in the space of disability. Close to 85% of our employees rated John’s keynote as ‘outstanding’ and 100% of employees rated it either ‘valuable’ or ‘of significant value’. John Register’s voice is an important one and his passion and critical engagement around diversity will do much to advance our shared vision of creating a more inclusive world.”


    Senior manager of Diversity and Inclusion, Southwest Airlines Company

  • “I have seen my share of motivational speeches in corporate America over the last 20 years. None was so moving and humbling as was John’s message of overcoming adversity and capitalizing on the “New Normal.” For our corporate message he taught that everything we do is tying and linking to a vision of where the company is going, and those are our “New Normals” that we are after. I highly recommend John for your organization’s motivational and event speaker needs!”
