John Register Biography

For organizations on the brink of transformation, looking to rally their teams and overcome current challenges, John Register represents a unique and compelling opportunity. His approach goes beyond mere speeches about overcoming adversity; he demonstrates resilience and lessons learned from walking through the fires of life's toughest moments.

Today's leaders face not just the uncertainty of changing times but also the resistance from employees wary of reverting to pre-pandemic norms. Common complaints include feelings of being overwhelmed, burned out, and exhausted. In this new era, as Register articulates, a return to the "normal" we once knew is impossible.

Register doesn't merely talk about resilience and transformation; he lives these principles every step of the way. His journey is a masterclass in turning adversity into triumph. From being As an award-winning speaker and a beacon of strength, Register’s life story inspires everyone he meets, from U.S. presidents and foreign dignitaries to celebrities and C-suite executives.

Register’s story is one of remarkable triumph over adversity. As a celebrated athlete, Persian Gulf War U.S. Army veteran, amputee, and Paralympic silver medalist, Register has faced and overcome unimaginable challenges. His athletic career faced a pivotal moment with a severe injury leading to the amputation of his left leg. However, he chose not to be defined by this incident, instead redefining victory itself. By embracing a "new normal," he not only returned to competitive sports but also achieved Paralympic glory, forever marking his place in sports history.

Register’s spirit has extended far beyond the track. He founded the U.S. Olympic Committee Paralympic Military Sports Program, inspiring the creation of the Department of Defense's Warrior Games and Prince Harry's Invictus Games. This initiative reflects his unwavering commitment to uplifting those facing their darkest moments.

With a wealth of experience advising U.S. Secretaries of State on foreign policy and leading the Amputee Coalition as the acting CEO, Register stands as a guiding figure for leaders everywhere. His narrative, characterized by overcoming adversity, resilience, and the courage to push beyond limitations, engages audiences through his transformative model encompassing The Reckoning, the ReVision, and the Renewal. His prestigious Certified Speaker Designation places him among the elite speakers worldwide, a recognition earned by less than 10% in the field.

Register’s insights on leadership and overcoming adversity are not just theoretical but are drawn from his lived experiences, as shared in his acclaimed book, "10 Stories to Impact Any Leader: Journal Your Way to Leadership Success." These lessons, which were written to uplift U.S. Ambassadors at the beginning of the pandemic, are invaluable for anyone navigating the complexities of professional life with grace and determination.

Engaging Register for your event is not merely about booking a keynote speaker; it's about sparking a transformative shift. He encourages teams to confront their challenges head-on, cut away their fears, and strive for excellence in all areas of life. Invite Register to share his extraordinary journey at your next event. Let his transition from adversity to the pinnacle of Paralympic success inspire your team to see every challenge not as an obstacle but as a stepping stone toward greater achievements.
