His DIS-ability (muscular dystrophy) is the source of his ABILITY to leave your group motivated to “Go Full-Strength!” Greg Smith is an expert at turning weaknesses into strengths, leading to increased passion, productivity and profits.

“The Strength Coach” seizes attention from the outset. He tells the story of how a lifetime of accepting the changes that come with gradual muscle weakening has built within him a tremendous inner strength.  But refreshingly, he does it a way that will have your audience laughing once a minute and be blown away with the impact of his message.

Greg Smith is a very engaging, dynamic, funny, entertaining and inspiring communicator who has worked at the professional level for 17 years. Since graduating from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University, Greg Smith has:

  • Served as Research/Sales Promotion Director at KTAR Radio in Phoenix, AZ

  • Started his own nationally syndicated radio program on disability issues
  • Authored two books
  • Been the subject of a PBS award-winning documentary film seen by 1.5 million people
  • Raised three children as a single parent

In his keynote address, Greg transcends the temporary “fired up” feeling that most motivational speakers deliver as a short-term solution. He leaves people inspired to work together as a productive team. People gain a lasting passion to do their important work while coping with and embracing change, and creating significant, competitive and desired outcomes on a daily basis.

Greg’s strategies and tactics for building inner strength are tangible and easy to follow. Based on consultation with you in advance, he will inspire people to do specifically what it is you want them to do.
