There was a standing ovation at the end of his talk, and more than a year later I still hear from people that Mick motivated them to do something meaningful, to act, and to
make a difference.”

“We were proud and happy to have had Mick speak about his EyeWriter project at CreateTech. It tied together the themes of our creative technologies conference in a wonderfully motivating way. It was the most authentically inspiring presentations I’ve heard in a long time.”
Global CEO, Leo Burnett
“Mick Ebeling’s presentation to our clients and staff was the best I have seen in 20 years. He is an incredible hybrid of down-to-earth, humble pragmatist and simultaneously pushing you to a whole new stratosphere of thinking. He truly makes you believe that nothing is impossible.”
"Porter Novelli invited Mick to be our closing speaker for our Senior Leadership Conference. We wanted to leave our team full of inspiration. We wanted them to remember that the opportunities and challenges in our business are indeed possible and we can accomplish great things for our company and our clients if we commit first then figure it out. That simple act of “committing” is so powerful. When Mick talks about stories of helping people speak, to have the use of hands, to be able to paint again, these words lift up everyone and create an emotion that is long-lasting. If you are looking to inspire your team to greatness or see possibilities instead of barriers, then Mick Ebeling is the perfect person to elevate your conference."
Director, Education, Consumer Healthcare Products Association
"Mick Ebeling is “inspiring”, “life changing”, “the real deal”. He had 400 attendees hanging on his every word, captivated by his raw passion and drive to change the world, one feat at a time. If you are looking for a speaker who will elevate your meeting to the next level, he is the man for you."
"Thanks so much for suggesting Mick. He was just the break our attendees needed! His energy, passion, and dedication were thoroughly enjoyed by our attendees. He received a standing ovation and lots of questions afterwards."

Thank you so much for being a part of our Pride in Execution Meeting. Everyone was buzzing about your presentation and what a tremendous impact it had. It was definitely the inspirational message I wanted to close our ‘think differently” theme and meeting. Thank you for showing us the impact of helping just one person. I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Mick was one of the most engaging and dynamic keynote speakers we have hosted. His message was well-received by our audience and even now, weeks after the event, I am still hearing people discuss Mick and Not Impossible labs within the hallways of our office.
Manu Prakash devised a microscope made mostly of paper that costs less than $1. The Foldscope, as it is known, replaces the precision-engineered lens housing that is a traditional microscope’s costliest component with a paper assembly like an old-fashioned slide rule. The pattern is printed, cut and folded from a single sheet.
