This dynamic inspirational father and son speaking team featuring former New Orleans Saint and Super Bowl XLIV Champion Chris Reis and his father Mike Reis. Their mission is to encourage others to live life with thoughtful and selfless intention. Their soon-to-be-published book, “Recovery of a Lifetime”, examines how a son’s trust in God and perseverance against all odds throughout his life led to his historic recovery of the game changing onside kick in Super Bowl XLIV and how that moment influenced his father to suddenly reign in 35 years of addictive behaviors in favor of sobriety and selflessness.
As father and son speaking team, Mike and Chris Reis are perfect for any organization seeking speakers to inspire and motivate their audience to overcome obstacles through God’s truth and love. Since their very first after dinner speech at a men’s retreat in New Orleans, they have been widely sought-after by churches, business, and addiction recovery and empowerment groups in need of their kind of “real life,” “we’ve been there too” inspiration.
The meeting planner for a recent speaking engagement summed up these dynamic speakers best in an email following their presentation at SPF (Single Parent Fellowship)…
”Tonight was indeed inspirational --- on so many levels! I'm so glad that the evening helped to confirm what seems so obvious to all of us --- that God has uniquely gifted the two of you with a very special message to share with the world! Your talk tonight was inspirational and insightful, powerful and compelling. Loved the honest and humble way you both told your stories with just the right amount of humor at just the right moments. I was looking around the room as each of you spoke and I can honestly say you had us all spellbound! No one wanted it to end. In fact, that's the first time I can remember that we chose to forgo breakout groups in order to continue listening to the speakers!” Cumming (Metro Atlanta) City: Georgia State: Book: Recovery of a Lifetime Less than one year.
