Mark McIntosh is one of the 26 professional speakers featured in Vol. 1 of Finding Speaking Success.
In February of 1976, Mark McIntosh was living every teenage athlete’s dream. A three sport high school All-American, Mark had just signed his letter of intent to play football at the University of Missouri and was projected to be drafted in the first round.
Then the unthinkable happened. In a bloody accident on the basketball court, Mark suffered a severe brain injury, a torn rotator cuff, and deafness in one ear.
Mark McIntosh’s career as a professional athlete was over. After challenging endeavors in sales, sports broadcasting, and marriage, it’s safe to say Mark knows a little something about adversity. But adversity is something that Mark has always found the strength to come back from.
For the last five years, he has been channeling his immense energy into encouraging others to overcome life’s challenges. He has written three books, including Run to Daylight, and is speaking about once a week as ‘The Comeback Coach’.
