About Cory Johnson

The topic of personal development is one that resonates with me. Having attended nearly 100 personal development and professional seminars over the last decade. I always found one alarming factor,  I was always the youngest attendee. Now as a professional speaker and mentor, I am committed to bringing the information that I and millions of adult professionals seek to benefit their own lives to young men and women. For I believe that "if you have the privilege to know then you have the duty to act" (Albert Einstein). After surviving a traumatic brain injury (TBI)  in 2013 I had to relearn how to talk, walk, think and thus recreate myself. Luckily, I had built up a professional network of health and performance coaches, business men & women and friends from around the world who shared with me the key lesson for my successful recovery. By developing a strong self-awareness and the integrity to self-manage I have been able to do things and go places that my medical doctors called "highly unlikely". My accident and recovery is one that a close friend called, "an expensive learning lesson". The lessons that I have been taught and personally experienced are why I am so excited to teach, speak with and mentor young people.
