About
Travis Daigle overcame a childhood marked by physical, sexual, and verbal abuse. Growing up in Birmingham, Alabama, he battled obesity, weighing over 300 pounds at 17 years old. After years of failed attempts while facing constant bullying at school, he lost over 100 pounds before heading off to college at the University of Houston. There he would spend 5 years enduring sleepless nights spent studying, dealing with persistent financial struggles, and overcoming social awkwardness from his past. In May of 2005 he graduated with honors, majoring in Electrical Engineering as a 1st-Generation College student. After a brief stay in Corporate America, Travis decided that he needed a deeper sense of purpose at work. In August of 2007, he enlisted in the US Army with hopes of becoming a Special Forces Soldier a.k.a. Green Beret. At the time, he was 25 years old. He had never been on a hike, never shot a gun, never been camping, and he didn't know how to swim. He would go on to graduate in the top 20% of his class of Green Beret's and spend a year deployed to combat in Afghanistan. During the two and a half year Special Forces Assessment Process, he would also pay off $60,000 dollars of debt and leave the military in 2012, debt-free. Today, Travis continues to challenge himself as he pursues competition as a Mixed Martial Arts Fighter.

He speaks and writes with the hope that his story will help others to meet life's challenges with the determination to Adapt and Overcome.

Travis's expertise is personal growth and resilience. His efficacy as a speaker hinges on his ability to use his personal story to connect with the mental/emotional obstacles that audience faces and share universal strategies to overcome those obstacles. His diversity of personal experience allows him to connect with a wide range of audience demographics. He's spoken to Division 1 Collegiate Athletes, High School/College Students, Small Business Owners and Entrepreneurs, Healthcare Staff, and Non-Profit Organizations. He also spoke at TEDx Tacoma 2018.

Travis's philosophy on personal growth is anchored in 3 principles: Mastery of Fundamentals, Taking 100% Ownership, and Embracing Failure. He can cater his topics towards the specific needs of the event/audience based on these ideas. Make sure to visit his website to see samples of his speaking.

"I first heard Travis Daigle speak at the TEDx event held in November 2018; I was immediately captured by his humble and authentic style. His approach is very engaging – he is real and likeable, and his message is powerful. We all need to overcome adversity at some point, and he provides you with the tools to be successful. I knew Travis would be well-received in our organization, but what I really appreciated about him was that he adapted well to our needs. He is not a one-message presenter. Travis is passionate about making a contribution, and works collaboratively. I will definitely use his skills again in our organization." - Charlie Davis, President and CEO - YMCA Pierce/Kitsap Counties


"Your talk was especially relatable; your tone and presence putting the audience at ease. Thank you for your openness and inspiring talk.
We know your time is valuable and we sincerely appreciate for your time and energy in preparing to speak. Your talk undoubtedly left a lasting impression on the audience and we believe that everyone walked away inspired to bridge the gap; both within themselves and within their community." - TEDx Steering Committee


"I witnessed Travis address FBS football coaches and student-athletes at Indiana University with a story about courage in the face of fear. Specifically, he spoke about overcoming his fear of water in the process of becoming a US Army Special Forces Soldier. His personal story is incredibly powerful and his ability to make that story relatable to his audience is phenomenal. This enables him to connect and inspire across cultural barriers. This skill is invaluable in collegiate football environments where teams of 120+ coaches/athletes, from all different backgrounds, must coalesce around one mission in a narrow space of time." - Eric Kapitulik, CEO and Founder, The Program, LLC
