Motivational Speaking

Dean Gunnarson has taken his vast experiences as an escape artist traveling around the  world achieving the impossible and created a series of motivational presentations. People eagerly sit and listen to the lessons and techniques that he has learned from years of escaping. Dangling over man-eating alligators, locked in shark cages under water, hanging by his toes 726 feet over Hoover Dam in Las Vegas , thrown out of airplanes chained and handcuffed at 13,000 feet or crushed in a car, are a few of the amazing escapes he talks about. Why does Dean do these things? Is he afraid? What does his mother think? You wont find out the secrets of his escapes, but you will leave knowing things that are even more important to you!

Learn how to use the techniques of visualization in over coming your daily fears. Learn the best technique in preparing for meetings, addressing an audience or even a school presentation. Dean will inspire and teach you ways of improving your future in ways you never imagined. See how your audience gets motivated to achieve the impossible in their daily lives. Dean gives them the courage, hope, determination and the skills to believe in themselves no matter who they are or where they have come from. He uses many personnel examples of over coming huge obstacles in his life and doing things that people said could not be done!

Dean Gunnarson's personal story is even more amazing then his greatest of escapes. Get up close and personal with a truly unique individual that has over come cancer, escaped death while trapped inside a coffin underwater, and is dealing with the loss of two fingers when his right hand was crushed in a near fatal car crash. Dean has several motivational presentations he can do which can be combined with a live demonstration and/or video footage of some of his most incredible escapes. He will personally construct each presentation to fit in the time required and to the audience he is speaking with.  Dean is currently writing a book that will be a motivational autobiography. The book is due to be released later this year.
