Doug Dvorak - Motivational Speaker

How Critical is a Positive Mental Attitude?

Being one of the world’s most applauded motivational speakers and sales training consultants means Doug brings much more than flat data and prolonged speeches to the table. He believes developing a Positive Mental Attitude (PMA) is the answer to a successful and fulfilling life, no matter how challenging your current situation may be.

A cancer survivor who has also had to deal with many other major life challenges, Doug uses his ability to apply what he preaches to inspire diverse audiences to overcome obstacles and push the limits of what they believe is possible.

Since his battle with cancer, Doug has managed to regain what he describes as a peak physical state; a large undertaking considering he was once a nationally ranked professional racquetball player. He has ascended Mount Kilimanjaro, rafted the Amazon River, and ridden his mountain bike trip in some of the most hostile environments around the globe.

An alumnus of the world-famous Second City School of Improv Comedy in Chicago, Doug inserts hardy portions of fun into his presentations including some humorous stories from his many travels.
