In W Mitchell’s race for Congress, his slogan was ‘Oh YES he can!”.
This internationally recognized expert on change likes just to be called Mitchell and those who have watched and listened to him know that he can.
Born near Philadelphia, the former marine once drove a San Francisco Cable car and cofounded a metal casings company putting thousands to work.
In Crested Butte, Colorado, he gained worldwide recognition as “the major who save the mountain”. Mitchell is an author and commercial pilot and white water rafter. You could say he’s done it all.
Mitchell started his radio career in Hawaii. Today the Public Television host has been inducted in the Speakers Hall of Fame and is the recipient of the podium’s highest award of CPAE. He shares his powerful message for taking responsibility for change with audiences around the world.
Mitchell’s life is a true example of the title of his book ‘It’s not what Happens to you; it what you do about it’.
