Living Life

Catch Me In Action!

Speaker Reel

So much of how we measure success is based on whether or not we achieve our results, but what if you were to change the game? 

Through his journey from extreme sports enthusiast and world traveler, to quadriplegic, as the result of multiple sclerosis (MS), Howard has come to appreciate that the real magic in life is not about reaching your destination, but rather in the powerful lessons you learn while getting from point A to point B.

About Howard


Howard Spierer is a 65-year-old living with multiple sclerosis. As the result of MS, he is a functional quadriplegic confined to a motorized wheelchair. He is essentially a talking head, but boy can he talk! Through the course of his career Howard was a successful litigator often working on cases that made their way to the front page of The New York Times. Howard subsequently transitioned to a fortune 100 company where he led their complex litigation group and ultimately engaged in mediation and the negotiation of multimillion dollar international transactions.

That paralleled a life where Howard fed his creative side by performing stand-up comedy, writing plays, a screenplay, editing and owning a newspaper for aspiring actors, as well as serving as the Editor in Chief for the American Bar Association’s publication ‘Litigation News’.

Howard has traveled all over the world, been to 49 out of 50 states and engaged in extreme activities as running with the bulls, jumping out of airplanes, climbing the Grand Tetons, and rafting Class V rapids.

Howard has also been responsible for the creation of various not for profit entities including a men’s organization designed to empower and coach men on how to live lives of accountability, integrity and purpose.

You will find Howard engaging, articulate and unflappable. He is available as a keynote speaker, coach and consultant.
