Police Officers see more trauma and violence in one 8-hour shift than most people see their entire life.

Shaun O’Gorman spent 13 years as a front-line operational Police Officer that resulted in him suffering PTSD, clinical depression and a long battle with suicide.

Shaun has two beautiful daughters who he says saved his life as they gave him a reason to climb out of the darkness he was in and be a better person.

Shaun shares his message to show people that anything in life is possible if you are prepared to put in the work and be OK with being uncomfortable. He delivers his speeches with real-life examples and stories from his Police career as well as a healthy dose of self-deprecating humor.

In telling his story, Shaun hopes to inspire others and help change the lives of people all over the world. He now lives his life as an example to others that Alpha personalities can be emotionally connected and powerful in their own lives while still being effective leaders.

It was his difficult journey that enabled him to develop a mental resilience and emotional strength that gave him the tools to recover from a situation that very nearly ended his life.

Shaun’s story demonstrates the awesome power and strength found within the human spirit when faced with the choice to continue living as a victim of a tragic set of circumstances or to make a choice to seize life by the throat and live it to its fullest potential. 

Shaun can prepare Keynotes on any of the following topics dependent on the audience and the requirements of the host organization.

• How to deal with critical stress as a Police Officer, Soldier or First Responder
• How to be an inspiring & effective leader
• How to turn anxiety & fear into courage
