Thomas Dismukes’ appeal is universal.  For more than 20 years and 19 countries, audiences roll with laughter and applaud with inspiration at this man who does more than motivate and educate… he touches people’s lives.


Receiving a Masters degree from Clemson University, Thomas chose a career in professional speaking because of his sincere passion to inspire people to do their best and get the best out of life.

Never turning down an opportunity for a good story or a miserable time; Thomas’s true life adventures range from sleeping in dumpsters in England to exploring the Arctic Circle.  He’s survived bareback rodeos, skunks in space suits and electrocution in Sweden.  He’s walked through the Alps barefoot, lassoed a wild beaver, broken a World Record and was nearly drowned by an irrational goose.

Thomas has a unique ability to discern a meaning behind the madness, in a principle everyone can relate to, laugh at and apply to their lives.
