About Shay Eskew

At the age of 8, Shay was set afire by a neighbor’s child with gasoline and credited with saving the life of his 7-year-old friend as well as himself. When the dust settled, over 65% of his body was covered in burns and burn related scars. He would undergo over 43 surgeries over the next 42 years to reclaim his life as an athlete. Shay’s right arm was permanently melted to his body – it would take 3 years for him to be able it over his head. He had to learn how to write left-handed ...

Shay was fantastic! His story and message was challenging and inspiring. I would certainly recommend him to any group looking for a speaker for an event.

Shay's story and presentation of the same is not only motivational, inspiring, or courageous, but also helps us to realize just how much we can do if we set our minds to it!

Patt Lowe, Director Business Operations - Texas Health Resources

We had the pleasure of having Shay tell his remarkable story to our global sales staff at our annual meeting. He was knowledgeable, fun and most importantly an inspiration to our team. I would recommend organizations of all types should consider Shay as a speaker. His story of overcoming challenges and balancing work, family and Ironman training is a great lesson.

Steve, Chief Sales Officer - Concerto Cloud Services

Shay gave a powerful and inspiring talk at the Catholic Business League meeting in Nashville. I would encourage business owners and conference directors to hire Shay to motivate their employees/participants. Shay has a strong message that is given with humor and grace. The CBL looks forward to having Shay back soon!

Jeremy, Associate Vice Presiden - Financial Advisor at Morgan Stanley

Shay Eskew spoke at our Summer Institute in July 2018. He had the audience captivated from the minute he started speaking. He was entertaining, sincere, and left us all inspired. He was our highest rated speaker of the conference and the feedback from our attendees was that they wished he had more time to talk to the group. We may have to have him come back and speak again. He challenged us all to live a better life and live it to the fullest and he did it with humor and charisma. Thank you Shay for sharing your unique, incredible story.

Anne Adams, Controller - Chapman Foundations Management

Shay spoke at one my leadership retreats earlier this year. He shared an incredible message of perseverance and optimism. He left us motivated and ready to 'embrace the suck'. Highly recommend Shay for groups of any size.
