"Never Give Up. Never Quit." Keynote

Travis Mills’s keynote speech teaches and inspires audiences nationwide to “Never give up. Never quit.” no matter the obstacles or circumstances.

Travis’s larger-than-life personality, sense of humor and incredible spirit for life engages audiences from the moment he takes center stage. Travis’ speaking engagements take him all over our great nation ranging from football stadiums, to conferences, to classrooms. His motivational speeches reach a wide variety of people from all walks of life.

Travis is one of only five quadruple amputees from the war in Iraq/Afghanistan, and he is one very funny, very memorable speaker. He is a NY Times Best-Selling Author, is the feature of a Netflix movie, has a growing collection of businesses, and has a thriving foundation that is helping many other wounded vets and their families.   He is most certainly a leader in both the military and disability communities.

To give you a feel for his most popular keynote, he leads off with some rapid-fire jokes, and often times this catches the audience a little off-guard.  It’s as if they quickly realize, “Oh, this isn’t going to be a sob-story or another boring keynote, this guy is funny!” and they really start to sit up and lean in to what he is saying.  This is Travis’ style.  He pulls people in with humor, then begins to share his incredible story of perseverance.  For the most part, the humor keeps up, and the whole presentation is a really good time, but he is a pro, and there are a couple of times where he changes tempo a bit for some really dramatic, pretty unforgettable impact.  He is so adept with his prosthetics that it’s almost easy to forget this guy doesn’t have arms or legs, but then at different points in the presentation you’re reminded of what he has been through and risen from.  Because of Travis’ unique situation, he is hard to forget.

Travis’ story is awe-inspiring and his attitude towards life even more so. He was hilarious, powerful, and heartfelt.”
