Walter Jackson
Keynote speech

How do you overcome any setback?......
By "Sporting the Right Attitude," says popular speaker and author Walter H. Jackson. Walter shows audiences how to empower themselves with the right attitude right now. "Often the thing that keeps you from living a productive life and achieving your dreams is not an external obstacle but an internal one ─ your attitude," says Walter. "And that can be changed."

Walter grew up in a low-income family where he witnessed domestic violence, but in spite of that challenge, he attracted media attention as a rare Four-Sport athlete in football, basketball, baseball, and track and field. But a fateful car accident stole his promising athletic career, taking away scholarship offers from top colleges around the country. Even worse, doctors predicted he wouldn’t survive his coma and multiple internal injuries. But Walter proved them all wrong! Struggling to learn to walk again, he feared his athletic career was over. Then, just as he was making a full physical recovery, Walter's world was shattered again when his father was murdered by a stranger.

These incidents left Walter living an angry life, but he knew this attitude was holding him back, so he started applying what he'd learned in sports to his personal life. “When you get knocked down in life,” says Walter, “Pick yourself up, get back into the game ─ and Sport the Right Attitude!” As a keynote speaker, trainer and frequent talk show guest, he teaches this proven principle and gives you the keys to making it work right now in your own life.


Known for his exciting delivery and practical step-by-step action plan, Walter blends humor, personal experience and storytelling to help you achieve your personal and professional goals. His team-building workshops energize participants, transforming them from passive listeners to engaged learners. Whether you're a seasoned veteran of self-help techniques or exploring these principles for the very first time, you'll leave Walter Jackson's inspiring talk knowing that you can capitalize on your strengths, appreciate the differences in others, and overcome any setback life throws your way by "Sporting the Right Attitude."
