Colin O’Brady is a professional endurance athlete who brings two decades of athleticism, an Ivy-league education, and the life experience of overcoming a devastating accident to prove that anything in possible. A four-time world record holder, his most recent success was a solo, unsupported, and unaided crossing of Antarctica in 2018. Earlier that year, he set the speed record for the 50 highest points in the United States, in 21 days.
Colin’s world record feat captured the attention of CBS Sunday Morning, The Washington Post, Huffington Post, Men's Journal, Outside Magazine, People.com, and TODAY among many other national media outlets. And yet, this wasn’t Colin’s hardest challenge to date. In 2008 Colin suffered a tragic accident. He was severely burned in a fire; his injuries covered nearly 25% of his body, primarily damaging his legs and feet. Doctors warned him he might never walk again normally, but Colin was determined to beat the odds. He focused not only on walking again, but set himself a goal: to complete his first triathlon following his recovery. A mere 18-months after his accident while working as a commodities trader, Colin amazed the sporting world when he not only completed his first triathlon, but he placed first overall at the Chicago Triathlon. Colin went on to become a professional triathlete for six years and raced in 25 countries on six continents representing the United States in international triathlon competitions.
Knowing first-hand what it takes to overcome a serious setback, and the grit and perseverance required to achieve peak performance, Colin continues to pursue his passion for pushing his limits. His next athletic pursuit is on the horizon, and his commitment to doing good remains. Colin uses his public platform for charitable good. His non-profit Beyond 7/2 aims to inspire kids and their communities to dream big and set goals, while promoting the importance of an active, healthy lifestyle to achieve happiness and success. O’Brady’s TED Talk, “Change Your Mindset and Achieve Anything,” has been viewed over 1.5 million times.

I have worked with many agencies to book guest speakers over the past 5 years. My experience with AAE has been the best. The website, search facilitation software, and speaker briefs were great. The follow-up and support from the sales agent and logistics manager were excellent. We will no doubt be in touch next year.
