John treats his audiences with inspiring stories, important information, surprisingly funny observations and his positive attitude. John has developed an expertise in the area of success including how to live the highest quality of life with (or without) an adverse life-changing event.

Before Parkinson’s, Mr. Baumann was a Cornell-educated attorney who passed three bar exams and practiced law for 16 years.

“I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed your presentation. Nothing but praise coming in: best keynote speaker we’ve ever had. You are the real deal, John. You shared a lot of love this weekend in Milwaukee, John! Thanks for that. I know it takes a lot out of you.”
