Meet Michael OBrien

Michael’s unique mixture of “in the trenches” executive leadership experience and inspirational Last Bad Day story shifted his perspective on what is possible at work and in life. As a corporate coach, he elevates successful leaders by helping them prevent bad moments from turning into bad days.

Michael has shared his story with TEDx, ABC and companies like Pfizer, Genentech, the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association, Brother International, Novartis, J & J and many others. In addition, he’s written two best-selling books,Shift: Creating Better Tomorrows and My Last Bad Day Shift.

Helping 1 Million People Have Their Last Bad Day

Before launching his coaching career, Michael experienced a life-altering event that shattered his worldview. On July 11th, 2001, he was struck head-on by a speeding SUV while out on a training bike ride. He considers his Last Bad Day one of his
best days because it helped him shift his perspective in almost every aspect of his life and career.

Since then, Michael is on a quest to help 1 million people have their Last Bad Day, too.

Michael is a strong male ally for women’s leadership and empowerment causes. He’s the first male president of a chapter of the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association, and gives all the proceeds of his best- selling memoir, Shift, to World Bicycle Relief. They help girls conquer the challenge of distance by providing mobility and access to education, healthcare and the market.

Speaking Engagements

Michael’s experience as a corporate executive translates into a simple message with a profound impact: stop letting bad moments turn into bad days.

His Last Bad Day talk is a raw, honest story about what happens when we chase happiness.

He reminds us to pause, breathe and reflect (PBR), when life feels too overwhelming. Allowing a bad moment to turn into a bad day means we aren’t living our one life wisely.

This engaging and inspirational discussion is sure to motivate audiences to action and help them discover practical ways to have their Last Bad Day, too.

 
Everyone is still talking about Michael’s speech and the very empowering and impactful message he delivered. Thank you for enriching all of us!
— P. Smith, Biogen
Michael’s approach was very thought-provoking, inspiring and completely personal. It made us really think about perception, both our own and how others see us, which really made us look to ‘get real’ with ourselves.
— —C. Karp, Regeneron
