About

Let's work together to bring a Stephen Uzelac presentation to your organization, school or community. I am a dynamic/motivational speaker, retired college professor, and co-author of Learning to Find Your Excellence. In 1960, when I graduated from high school, I was two years behind my original classmates and had a third-grade reading level. What changed my life was my belief in me and removing the false limitations others put on me. In 1999, at the age of 59 and faced with death, I was able to win my battle because of life choices and my positive, optimistic attitude. Today, I am over 72 and still able to swim a mile, walk five and bike over thirty. I believe that when people are motivated to seek and find their excellence, they can serve one another with pride, dignity and respect. Qualifications are the following: * 1990 -- Author of "Assertive Leadership the Human Side of Total Quality Team, Management, fourth edition 2003 * 2001 -- Co-author with wife Judy of "Learning to Find Your Excellence", 2004 second edition * 1971, 1972 and 1973 -- Recognized by the Ohio Jaycees as one of the top speakers in the State of Ohio * 1995 -- Teacher of the Year * 1998 -- Northwest Ohio Toastmaster of the Year I am a keynote speaker. I present in-house workshops on school and work success, safety, leadership, customer service, team building and professional/personal development. All workshops/seminars are related to productive lifestyles that keep us healthy, safe and confident. This is what some students at Spring Grove Middle School, Spring Grove, PA, had to say about me: Dear Mr. Uzelac, thank you for teaching me to believe in me. Logan Altland Dear Mr. Uzelac, thank you so much for speaking to us today. At 72, you're such an inspiration. I still have my warm fuzzy. Thank you, Lauren Dear Mr. Uzelac - Your presentation was my favorite of the day. You made so much sense and made me think and wonder about stuff. Thank you, Bruce Bailey Thank you Mr. Uzelac; You taught me to set a goals and procrastination will get you no where. I also learned I can be great. Aaron Mr. Uzelac; Thank you for coming to our school and talking to us. You have an amazing view on life and it really brightens up the room. The story of how hard you worked to improve your education and how you won your battle after coming close to death is truly inspiring. After hearing you say how much your positive attitude has helped you in life. I started thinking. Maybe I could improve my attitude and live a happier, longer life. Thank you for the inspiration. Shayna Dear Mr. Uzelac; You gave me so much inspiration to work harder and follow my dreams. I always thought so negative about myself because of people calling me short or a whore/slut even though I do nothing of the sort. The thing you said about not letting your past get in the way of your future really inspired me. You have a lot of wisdom. Also, I love the warm fuzzies, the beacon of light was the best. I'm going to start using that. Thank you so much! I'm officially inspired to work towards my goal/dream of being a guidance teacher/young grade teacher. Kayla
