Biography

Michael Scott Karpovich, CSP, was raised on a farm in mid-Michigan. His father is a physicist and his mother is a bacteriologist....Michael says that he doesn't know whether he was born or mixed!


Diagnosed with brain damage at age four, beaten up and called a “nerd” by bullies... this unlikely hero has discovered that our greatest adversities are really what make us strong! In spite of or perhaps because of his awkward start, Michael has worked successfully as a farmer, an author, a popular radio disc jockey, a high school drama coach, a counselor and a college instructor! Now he speaks to over 300,000 people annually as a popular keynote presenter, was the youngest president in the history of the Professional Speakers Association of Michigan and is one of less than 700 Certified Speaking Professionals on the planet! (Not bad for a brain-damaged nerd!)


Professionally, Michael is often asked to keynote state, regional and national conventions and associations across the United States and Canada. He is best known for his work as an inspirational keynoter for educational professionals, health care associations and mental health professionals.
