Few people have an overcoming story like John O’Leary. He is regularly described as “the best speaker we’ve ever had” and offers inspiration with emotional storytelling and surprising humor.
John had his whole body burned after an explosion in his home when he was 9 years old. The accident happened when he was playing with fire and gasoline. The story was first told by his parents in 2008 when they wrote Overwhelming Odds. Now, John feels his message of hope is more needed than ever since the COVID-19 pandemic changed the world and how people view things.
John authored the #1 National Bestselling books On Fire and In Awe. He hosts the top-rated Live Inspired Podcast and has taught more than 50,000 annually on how to gain inspiration.
He focuses on team burnout among business clients in his keynote speeches, as he found that to be the biggest issue for his clients since the pandemic.
John considers his greatest success to be his marriage to his wife Beth, their four children, and his relationships with friends and family.
