MADISON, Wis. – Hear the inspiring story of acclaimed speaker and bestselling author John O’Leary, who was given just a 1% chance to live after burning 100% of his body at nine years old. John’s story reminds audiences of the significance of daily attitudes, the power of gratitude, and the impact of serving others with courage.

How One Attitude, One Action, and One Person Can Change the World will take place Thurs., May 9 at the Fluno Center Auditorium from 3 – 5 p.m. The Wisconsin School of Business Family Business Center will be hosting this unique and life-changing program.

John’s story doesn’t focus on his own life. It centers on the heroes who served him and his family during their hardest times, including a Hall of Fame sports announcer and a visionary burn nurse, and how one person can make a profound impact on another’s life.

This program is open to the general public. Anyone who is seeking inspiration and motivation in their life both personally and professionally is encouraged to attend. Registration information can be found on the Wisconsin School of Business Center for Professional & Executive Development website or by going to go.wisc.edu/oleary.
