Keynote Topics

A Purposeful Life – Helping audiences unlock the extraordinary within themselves, Steve talks about finding deep meaningful work from within.

He provides insights and tools to aim for boundless heights with relentless commitment, yet without attachment to the outcome. “The truth is that we all experience pain in our lives, but I believe that the problems we face are our opportunity to find our human purpose.

Life is difficult. Not just for me or other ALS patients.

Life is difficult for everyone. Finding ways to make life meaningful and purposeful and rewarding, doing the activities that you love and spending time with the people that you love – I think that’s the meaning of this human experience.”

In this talk your audience will be inspired to look at their life differently, from a perspective of hope, positivity and purpose.

Steve shares how life’s limitations cannot hold us back from achieving our full potential. Resilience becomes critical to our success and requires us to accept our powerlessness, revealing an unknown future which offers limitless potential.

He’ll describe how to overcome personal difficulties, and your audience will take away three key lessons

Steve Gleason | Inspirational Speaker

In 2015, Congress passed “The Steve Gleason Act” unanimously to make communications devices available to those who need life-sustaining support. By 2018, after 3 years, the “Enduring Voices Act” passed in February, replacing the first law to ensure the availability of life-sustaining communication devices for those who are most in need.

Steve Gleason’s enduring commitment to serving as a spokesperson to raise awareness about ALS has garnered national support. On an international level, the NFL player turned political activist has placed ALS on the forefront of Congressional and United Nations agendas. He travels the world encouraging those with ALS and all of humanity to find purpose in life’s challenges.
