The ATI Talk: Ignite a radically inspired life! 

The burdens on educators during the pandemic have been overwhelming. The result: Many find themselves going through the motions — unclear, unguided, and unfulfilled. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. Imagine what you could accomplish if you stepped into each day feeling fully engaged? If you moved through the hours with joy, passion, and inspiration ... 

You can do so much more in life, and John O’Leary will teach you how.  

When John was 9, a fire left him with burns on 100% of his body. Doctors gave him a 1% chance of surviving — yet he did. And after enduring months in the hospital and years of PT, John woke up to what really matters. Today John teaches others how to live. Decades after the fire, he holds one of the greatest gifts of all: perspective. 

In honor of your enduring dedication to nursing education — especially over the past year — and to celebrate National Nurses Month, ATI is proud to sponsor John in a live presentation where he’ll share his outlook to awaken you to your life’s potential. By the end of his talk, you’ll be energized to live more thoughtfully, more boldly, and more inspired. 

Register now for this special event where you’ll have the opportunity to engage with John and get his personal insight into the nursing profession and your job as an educator.


Space is limited to the first 3,000 who log on for the live event. (You must register in advance to gain your log-in access link.) If you can’t attend, we’ll offer an encore viewing of John’s presentation via ATI Academy.

*Please note, following registration, you will receive access information via an email from Zoom. Spots are not guaranteed. All live sessions will be held on a first-come-first-serve basis.

You make the future of nursing a reality today. We celebrate you during this special month in your honor.

John O'Leary, Two-Time #1 National Bestselling Author & Speaker

Expected to die. Now teaching others how to truly live.jOleary

In 1987, John O’Leary was a curious nine-year-old boy. Playing with fire and gasoline, John created a massive explosion in his home and was burned on 100% of his body. He was given less than a 1% chance to live.

This epic story of survival (first showcased in 2008 with his parents’
acclaimed book Overwhelming Odds) has never felt more relevant than as we live through the COVID-19 pandemic together.

John inspires 50,000+ people at 100+ live and virtual events each year. He speaks to companies and organizations across industries, including: sales, healthcare, safety, marketing, finance, faith, education and insurance.

Consistently described as “the best speaker we’ve ever had,” John receives nearly 100% of his engagements from referrals. His schedule is a testament to the power of his message; his emotional story-telling, unexpected humor and authenticity make each presentation unforgettable.

John’s genuine, collaborative approach to partnering allowed him to understand early that clients’ biggest pain point in the wake of the fallout from the pandemic is team “burnout.” To address this, John expanded his Live Inspired Coaching program to bring his keynote from inspirational to transformational. Early successes in the program have clients saying their
teams are more focused, collaborative and engaged than ever.

John is a two-time #1 National Bestselling author. His first book ON FIRE: The 7 Choices to Ignite a Radically Inspired Life has sold 250,000+ copies and been translated into 12 languages.
IN AWE: Rediscover Your Childlike Wonder to Unleash Inspiration, Meaning and Joy published in May 2020 with many saying it is the message we all need right now.

John’s award-winning Live Inspired Podcast has more than 2.5 million downloads and enjoys world-class guests like Brené Brown, Mitch Albom and Shawn Achor.

John considers his greatest success to be his marriage to his wife Beth, their four children and his relationships with friends and family.
