Barry Long

Talk & Roll

Choosing the Positive Path to getting where you want to go


Bungee jumping, international travel, parenting, are all examples of very challenging tasks. And from Barry’s perspective, even more so while sitting in my wheelchair. In this presentation Barry will share how embracing the power of asking for help, having fun and ones own attitude will help everyone see they have the ability to achieve anything they want and truly enjoy life!


For over 20 years, Barry has had the pleasure of traveling all over the world to make hundreds of presentations to organizations, small businesses and Fortune 500 companies, inspiring audiences to strive for greater levels of accomplishment by setting goals that lead to success.


Barry was 22 years old when a near-fatal motorcycle crash completely and permanently altered almost everything I knew about life. Barry discovered early in recovery that choosing to live with a genuinely positive attitude, setting realistic and achievable goals and learning to ask for help makes anything possible.
