Today, we are excited to have a very special guest, on for what was our Veterans Day, and hear the incredible story of Captain George Burk!

George Burk, keynote speaker, trainer, author, Vietnam veteran and sought after speaker inspires and motivates people wherever he speaks.

In 1970, George was the sole survivor of 14 passengers in a military plane crash. He suffered burns over 65% of his body and multiple internal injuries. His rescue and recovery have been called a miracle. He spent 90 days in intensive care, and 18 months in the hospital. For over nine months after leaving intensive care, he was paralyzed and not expected to walk again. While in the ICU, he had two Near-Death Experiences (NDE's). He saw the bridge, saw the door, and saw the light. He believes we all have guardian angels. George says, "If you expect a difference, make one and if you want a miracle, be one." His belief in God and messages of faith, hope, perseverance, commitment and to never give-up inspires and challenges audiences to be all they can be.

If you know of an organization or company who could benefit from hearing George's message, or who is seeking an outstanding keynote speaker or trainer, please put us in contact with each other. Email George with the name of the group, or company, contact name, address and phone number.

For more information about George's keynotes, training seminars and books, contact him: gburk@georgeburk.com
