Welcome to The Magic of Life
The Magic of Life is a humorous and heartfelt educational program about Michael Gershe who survived a drunken driving incident that killed his mother and nearly himself when he was barely eight weeks old. Despite breaking almost all his bones in the incident, he went on to become a collegiate swimmer; stand-up comedian and inspirational speaker who shares his story like no other on this topic.
Michael does not subscribe to the regular "doom and gloom" philosophy when it comes to alcohol awareness programs as he combines stand up comedy, audience participation and his powerful story. The audience is not lectured to, but will leave inspired to make smart decisions that will allow them to pursue their dreams.
He uses humor to connect with the audience before talking about not only his personal story, but issues such as peer pressure, drunk driving, binge drinking, and how alcohol can impact a student's career. The use of audience participation teaches the audience in a fun way about how their decision to use alcohol could lead to negative consequences. As a college administrator he knows first-hand how alcohol can affect a student's life.
Having been called, "one of the most touching and inspirational speakers I've ever had the pleasure to hear," Michael not only educates, but inspires the audience to pursue their dreams by understanding that life is very precious. The Magic of Life is perfect for Orientation programs, middle schools, high schools, athletic groups, Greek student organizations, general student population, military and more!
The Magic of Life is not just an alcohol awareness program or an anti-drunk driving program; it is about a mother's son sharing his story trying to make a difference. If you are looking for that special program that will leave your group inspired, contact Michael today!
"In my 30 years in education, I have seen hundreds of school assemblies and yours was by far the best."
