About Warren MacDonald

Warren Macdonald's life's boundaries were redefined in April 1997 with his accident on North Queensland's (Australia) Hinchinbrook Island. Climbing to the Islands tallest peak, he became trapped beneath a one-ton slab boulder in a freak rock fall. Two days later he was rescued, only to undergo the amputation of both legs at mid thigh.

Just ten months later, he climbed Tasmania's Cradle Mountain using a modified wheelchair and the seat of his pants.

In February 2003, he became the first double ...

"Over the past 32 years, we have had hundreds of speakers around the globe. Many considered to be best of the best. Personally for me, Warrens Story is beyond compare. needless to say. But it is in meeting this man and how every time i see him or speak to him he has an attitude that is always positive and exciting. I would place Warren in top 10 in World for Motivational speaking. And we have had Presidents, Mayors, actors, activists, political and religious leaders, and everyone in between."

Rob Thorsteinson, President - Cascadia Motivation Inc

Three years later, our leaders still speak about our offsite and how impactful your participation was in seeing the possibility of transformation. We needed to see that if we wanted another outcome, we had to change the way we looked at ourselves and our future and commit to doing something about it.

Jane McVeigh - General Dynamics Canada

Warren, you were warmly embraced with a standing ovation before you even reached the stage! Your message of perception and determination deeply touched the entire audience. It has renewed and reenergized our sales force to reach for new heights. We are so excited to have you work with us again. "Climb on"!

Laura Rodrigues, Director, Corporate and Employee Events - RBC Insurance

No testimonial I can give will do justice to what you brought to our Annual Franchise Partner Conference this year. I had the highest of expectations after booking you and completing the pre-event call yet you absolutely blew those expectations out of the water. I believe you received the only standing ovation of our three day event because you went out of your way to customize the message not only based on the details I'd given you earlier but also on the information you gleaned from attending several sessions earlier in the day. I have never seen a more captivated and inspired audience or a more dedicated speaker. Thanks Warren for helping to make this our highest rated conference yet!

David Christopher, Manager-People Department - 1-800-Got-Junk?

Everyone, including Mike, thought that you wove the challenges we face in Major Projects into your personal story extremely well and that served to really drive home the message about creating a crisis in order to raise the performance bar rather than waiting for one to occur.

Ron Genereux, VP Operating Plant Projects

I hope you realize the impact you had on all of us! We found your talk so incredibly motivating and inspiring... I know it will have a profound impact on many of us for years to come.
