Dylan Slattery, a 2-time cancer survivor before the age of 27, including a stage four diagnosis with less than 15 percent chance of living. Then depression and ptsd like symptoms set in when losing his classmate and friend in an auto accident. Then losing 60 pounds in 18 months. Cancer gave this young man something to fight for at a time when it seemed life wasn’t worth fighting for
Dylan found freedom being restrained to a hospital bed for 24-hours a day. Through the unconditional love of his family and friends he found the strength and resilience to fight the good fight.
Despite his challenges, he chose to flip the script and see his adversity as a gift - sharing his story that has inspired thousands of people around the world.

Two-time cancer survivor, mental health struggles, and substance abuse has taught Dylan about the process to overcoming diversity and growing through it. Dylan believes “adversity is a universal experience that can not only UNITE us, but TRANSFORM us into the people and organizations that we were called and created to be.
(I would like to include something to the effect of my source of inspiration being my father, who took his own life when my mom was 8 months pregnant with me.)
Dylan is best suited for sales kickoffs, sports team training camps, medical, insurance, and financial services industry.
Dylan will challenge your audience…
Dylan learned there is a system of overcoming and it’s much like using a GPS, before is of any use at all – each team member must take ownership of their place on the team and decide to commit to their personal vision and the vision of the team; take action to get the team moving forward and never let pride or ego get in the way of recalculating when roadblocks come up.
Be the Cure
Culture built on:
Courage – To create a lasting impact, we have to dream big, even when the odds are against us. When we flip the script and lead with belief, less than 15% chance will soon mean possibility and rock bottom will be the place in which we build the foundation to propel us to excellence.
Unconditional Love – We are more than our title or our sales numbers. Seeing those around us a from a place of love can take your team to new heights
Resilience – The power to reframe is everything. Adversity will hit us as teams and individuals. Are you prepared with a mindset of seeing adversity as on the way instead of in the way?
Evolve - A willingness to evolve in a world that’s constantly changing. How we have always done things has certainly got us to where we are, but a willingness to change the approach can make all the difference in transforming your team into a tribe and taking your organization to new heights.
