11/13 Presentation – Charles Fleisher

Hear Charles Fleisher, “The Opportunities Guy,” speak about turning obstacles into opportunities on Wednesday, November 13th, from 9:30 am – 12:00 pm, at the Parsippany-Troy Hills Public Library.

Left paralyzed by a spinal cord injury at age 18, Charles learned to adapt to life in a wheelchair. By sharing his own experience, he inspires others to overcome life’s challenges as speaker, mentor and coach. 

In 2013, Charles published his first book, The Secret of Difficulties: 4 Steps to Turn Tragedies into Opportunities. For his efforts to educate young people about the potential consequences of risky behaviors, Fleisher earned the national ThinkFirst VIP of the Year Award.

In addition to his role with ThinkFirst, Fleisher owns a small healthcare agency and works with Friends Overcoming Adversity, an organization that promotes sports and recreation for people with disabilities. In addition, Fleisher serves as president of the Red Bank Toastmasters.
