MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING: "REACHING BEYOND BOUNDARIES" Don Mann’s unique story and the lessons he shares during his highly-accredited and popular presentations come from his colorful and action-packed life as a Navy SEAL Team SIX commando, an internationally renowned endurance athlete and as a New York Times Best-Selling Author. He has changed countless lives by sharing his unique “Reaching Beyond Boundaries” philosophy. Don has tailored his presentation to meet the needs of those in the corporate, financial, medical, educational and athletic communities. He shares insights into his personal philosophy of setting micro-goals to achieve macro-goals, while instructing organizations how to employ that same philosophy to achieve both personal and professional success. Don’s message includes equal doses of inspiration and strategy. As he likes to say, “Anybody with the proper mindset can achieve anything imaginable.” Setting macro goals is an important way for organizations to identify what it is they want to accomplish, although sometimes reaching those goals can be a daunting task. By breaking those macro goals down into micro goals, they become much more manageable and easier to handle. Shortly after the mission that left Osama bin Laden dead, Mann published the bestseller Inside Seal Team SIX: My Life and Missions with America’s Elite Warriors. He incorporates many of the same lessons and stories into his presentations, which often leave attendees inspired to change how they live. In his inspiring presentation “Reaching Beyond Boundaries” Mann reveals similar stories and personal anecdotes from his many years working with the SEAL teams and competing as a world-class athlete.

I am not embarrassed to say I had a tear in my eye.
It was my great pleasure to attend The Savannah Book Festival on February 15 &16. There were many great moments at The Festival, but nothing compared to the ten minute standing ovation given to Navy Seal and author Don Mann. His talk was very inspirational, and when he concluded the audience of some 200 people rose to show their respect and appreciation. I am not embarrassed to say I had a tear in my eye.
What an impact he left and how inspirational his talk was!
Don Mann is such an awesome and very humble man. It was an Honor serving with him in Naval Special Warfare and getting to know him. I think everyone loved him and it was nice that he was able to see a few SEALs he trained at the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund. Mr. Mann also did a video call with Mid-Michigan Multi Sports and those folks are still talking about him, what an impact he left and how inspirational his talk was!!!
