Doug Smith

Mental Performance, Trauma, Recovery and Overcoming Adversity Expert

Through his life story, keynote presentations, literary work & workshops, Doug demonstrates a simple and repeatable system any individual or organization can use to increase and sustain mental performance across all levels. It is a system that he has used in his own life to break through adversity, reach goals and build adaptive capacity in self and others. All businesses can leverage this awareness as competitive advantage.

At 18 years old, Doug was drafted 2nd overall into the NHL to play for the Los Angeles Kings as their youngest player ever. The next 11 years he was defined by hockey successes, hockey failures, his lack of awareness and the culture of a collision sport. His career ended suddenly at 29 years old when he shattered his spine in professional game #607 and suffered a high level spinal cord injury. He has since recovered and become a successful business leader, consultant and at the forefront of change for many National Associations, Corporations and Government Agencies.

Doug is passionate about performance, recovery and the process of change. His presentations provide attendees with building blocks for mental performance by using scientific research for emotional and physical change, and how they work off one another.

Today he speaks professionally to a global audience delivering a simple and profitable system for increasing mental performance & monitoring continuous improvement. He help organizations to do the right things and to do the right things in the right order to build and grow a strong foundation for success. He also develops personalized performance curriculum for leaders, managers and their employees.
