Charles Fleisher is an author, inspirational speaker and small business entrepreneur who has spoken to thousands of individuals in hundreds of venues in the US and abroad.
Since his spinal cord injury at 18 in 1988, Mr. Fleisher has continued to use his difficult situations as opportunities. Within the first year of his injury, he traveled to Colorado for rehab. While still in the hospital, the recreational therapy department helped him to go whitewater rafting, hot air ballooning, and adaptive waterskiing. This experience infused Mr. Fleisher with a high level of confidence that even with a limiting disability; he could continue to engage in a vast array of activities.
In 2000, he was inspired to start a nonprofit organization to help people with disabilities become aware of the vast amount of sports and recreational activities available to them. Understanding that his nonprofit organization would require him to overcome his fear of public speaking, he unknowingly began a new chapter in his career. Since 2004, he has been actively involved in becoming a more effective communicator, speaker and leader through his involvement with Toastmasters International. The confidence he received through this organization led him to begin speaking to youth as a representative of the Think First spinal cord and head trauma injury prevention program as well as other groups. He now uses his speaking experience to help organizations raise funds and is currently working on writing his second book.
