John Baumann is taking on a limited number of clients for coaching

July 25, 2017

John Baumann, internationally-recognized National Speaker Association inspirational, motivational and educational speaker, is making himself available to individuals for up to 15 total hours a week of coaching on his many areas of knowledge.

John’s academic coaching credentials are based upon his graduating summa cum laude from the University of Massachusetts, College of Business, graduation from Cornell Law School, being on the faculty of the University of Louisville, College of Business for a decade, and author of his critically-acclaimed book entitled: Decide Success – You ain’t dead yet.

John’s law experience prowess is based upon his experience as a General Counsel for 25 years focused primarily on employment, discrimination, labor relations, union and employment issues.

John’s experience effectively dealing with a chronic illness comes from his 15 years with parkinson’s disease and the over 100 Symposiums at which he has been a Keynote Speaker, Breakout session facilitator, and attendee. He may be the most knowledgable person with Parkinson’s alive and he is willing to share that information with a limited number of you.

If you want to be one of the limited number of participants, please call John at 502-262-3300.

The range of people who would benefit from John’s coaching include:
(1) Parkinson’s patients (especially newly diagnosed and early onset),
(2) their care partners,
(3) any person with a chronic illness,
(4) students who want to do better at school,
(5) the parents of children who want them to do better at school,
(6) students who want a better LSAT score,
(7) students who want help in passing the bar exam (John has passed three state bar exams),
(8) Presidents of businesses considering the costs and benefits of brining on an in-house attorney, or

(9) Presidents of businesses that need to address (or want to proactively prevent) harassment and discrimination issues.


John’s message of hope, inspiration and laughter was ideal for anyone living with PD. He was extremely flexible and a delight to work with.

Leisha Phipps, MSW Program Director - Dallas Area Parkinson Society

We all felt inspired and enjoyed listening to your presentation. Even though we are not living with Parkinson’s, we felt boost of motivation to continue helping those who are living with this disease. I am motivated to make more personal phone calls to people living with PD and asking how they are doing. Sometimes that “extra” bit of kindness truly makes a difference to someone. I am also motivated to research program ideas and partner with other organizations that may have similar values.

I learned that life is unexpected and that you cannot control it. What matters is your attitude!

-Great way to end the day, brave man, thank you very much!

-Good, excellent, great, outstanding speaker, very moving!

-Inspirational who just “gets it”

-Positive thinker and very funny!

-Honest speaker but also humorous!

Parkinson’s Society of Southwest Ontario, Canada, Symposium Keynote Presentation

“whatever hand life deals you, whatever life changing adversity you have to endure, you still have some control over it.” “You don’t have to just to live well,” he advises,” but live an Amazing Life.” The formula he proposes: Faith in yourself, discipline, determination, desire, intensity, and inner strength.


Yes, you touched every person at our conference, who will in turn change and impact so many others. The feedback from our participants was overwhelmingly positive. You are the only speaker to ever receive a standing ovation. Thank you for taking time to share, motivate and inspire. We are blessed to know you.


I will be honest. During the first 10 minutes of your presentation, I started reading work related material on my laptop. For surely, I had watched your You-Tube and seen your videos and knew what to expect. Surely, as a therapist I had studied this disease, the pathological components, the psychological components, the treatment alternatives……..Surely, I understand it.

Not so much. You caught my attention and I was enthralled. You were able to couple the impairments you experience with the emotions felt. You walked us through your life with the disease through “your eyes”. A perspective that a therapist/nurse rarely has the chance to hear. We get so busy telling patients how to deal with x, y and z, but our eyes are blurred by the science of it all most of the time.

You did it through truth, Through your humor, humility and determination to tell your story. One that most deservedly needs to be shared.

I will advocate to have you share your story. I appreciate your determination, diligence and dedication.
