Michael will share his remarkably inspiring story of overcoming extreme adversity to achieve incredible outcomes in both his personal and professional life. Global audience numbers exceed 600,000 people and despite spending nearly 1/4 of his life in the hospital, Michael’s ability to help you shift your mindset, instill perspective, and have you determined to become the best version of yourself, will amaze and inspire.

Representing Austrailia in his chosen sport, holding an executive position with one of the largest companies in the world at the age of 23, and then throwing it all away with a dream to make a global impact will leave you in awe. Opening an orphanage and school in Haiti, sharing the stage with the likes of  Richard Branson and the Dalai Lama along with a recent video being viewed by more than 60 million people, you can say he is certainly making an impact.

Michael’s story will undoubtedly bring a tear to your eye and a smile to your heart, but above all will teach you the importance of embracing change, the mindset needed to push through whatever this world throws at you, and the power of courage in the face of adversity.

Now is the perfect time to give your valuable team some fuel to top off the tank and a healthy dose of inspiration. This is a presentation not to be missed.

What separates successful and unsuccessful people, is not genetic material, their past, or their ability, but it is their mindset.

They choose to stay above the line, they choose to be optimistic through challenging times and they choose to grab their OAR and steer their life in the direction they want to take it!

We all know that life is in our hands, we control how we deal with every adversity, every challenge, and every victory. A wise man once said: “Do not allow success to go to your head nor failure to affect your heart.”

This training program will see you look deep into the mindset of a Victim and a Navigator, equip you with the tools to become the best version of yourself. You’ll also be committing to three behavioral shifts that will assist greatly in dealing with anxiety, fear, doubt, and uncertainty.

About Keynote Speaker Michael Crossland

Michael Crossland is an extraordinary young man who has defied the odds of a life threatening cancer to build a life of exceptional achievements.  An accomplished businessman and an elite sportsman, his life is a remarkable success.

Michael is at the forefront of today’s new generation of inspirational speakers and after releasing his first ‘tell all’ autobiography in January, he is now a number 1 bestselling author across 6 different countries. Michael speaks to businesses, schools /colleges and professional sporting groups around the world.  In the past 12 months his total audience numbers both nationally and internationally exceed 250,000.

Diagnosed with an aggressive life threatening cancer before his first birthday, doctors told him school and sport were not options – infection and fatigue were too great a risk.  As a boy Michael’s only wish was to lead a normal life and be able to do all the things that other ‘normal’ kids took for granted every day.

Now an accomplished businessman, Australian of the Year finalist, Australia Day Ambassador, Camp Quality Ambassador and international Hall of Fame inductee, Michael inspires many people from all walks of life with his story and inspirational message of self-belief and achieving the impossible dreams.

Michael captures audiences no matter what size and inspires each individual to achieve ongoing positive change in their life.  He has an absolute passion and belief in people’s ability to change direction, achieve success and become who they truly want to be.

Testimonials

Recently, the Toronto Blue Jays had the distinct honor to hear Michael Crossland speak. His story of perseverance was simply incredible. Not only did he captivate all of our players, but our coaches as well. He knew his audience, and was able to convey his inspirational message to everyone in attendance. Numerous players were eager to stay connected with Mr. Crossland and volunteered to help him however they could. His tireless work across the globe, in particular in Haiti, is simply remarkable. He has made such a difference in so many lives in a relatively short amount of time. He also shared his journey on the baseball field and capped it off with throwing batting practice to some of our biggest prospects!  His interaction with our players and overall upbeat attitude is something that any baseball manager cannot get enough of. Throughout my own baseball journey, I have never seen or heard such a positive perspective on not only the game, but on life itself. I would recommend Mr. Crossland to share his story with athletes, companies, and any other organization around the globe. We were honored to have him be part of the “Blue Jay Family” for a day, and we look forward to having him back soon.

We have never had a speaker connect with the audience the way Michael did, he is truly a remarkable man and touches everyone he comes across.  My favorite comment from a delegate was “Michael makes me want to be a better person”.  I would recommend him to anyone looking to inspire their team.

Michael Crossland was truly one out of the box. His story was at times heart wrenching, but the overarching message of refusing to let adversity define you struck a chord with our audience that I don’t believe we have hit before, or will manage to again. Never have I seen 500 people leap to their feet so quickly in a unified standing ovation. As a professional speaker, Michael’s attention to detail, ability to speak to brief and skill with an audience’s focus was second to none. From a booking point of view, he was friendly, approachable and entirely focused on what we were trying to achieve at our event. I cannot recommend him enough.

Michael is an amazing and tenacious human being with a rollercoaster of a story to share.  He is also an absolute professional to work with and doesn’t lose a single member of his audience. I’ve listened to him twice now and he’s received a standing ovation on both occasions. I cannot recommend Michael highly enough and can’t wait to have him back at our event’s in future.

Your achievements in the face of adversity in both business and sport are truly remarkable. Hearing about your tenacity and persistence in the face of so many hurdles was inspirational and highly motivating for those of us who work in a competitive sales environment and have our wins and disappointments, albeit no comparison with yours. Perhaps your experience in sales and sales management helped but we felt you connected particularly well with our people from the outset and the feedback since has been nothing short of exceptional. We are all better for the experience.
