Mike Finney Bio
Mike FinneyThe path to becoming a public speaker became clear at a young age. He persuaded workers in psychiatric hospitals to release him three times during his childhood. In addition to being hospitalized as a child, he was expelled from three schools, attempted suicide, and was treated in an effort to reduce emotional instability and behavioral outbursts.
By fifth grade, Mike was placed in a special education class. Aside from getting more one-on-one attention from the teacher, you’ve learned that pencil erasers make great noises when you tap a desk. He had no idea that drumming would become his career or his way to recovery.
As an adult, Mike has spent many years facilitating drum workshops for children with special needs, teaching them to channel their energy through drum percussion while also learning how to listen, focus, work together and succeed through teamwork. The project was so successful that it went on to expand its drumming program, first to adults in recovery, and eventually into the corporate environment.
As a certified corporate health professional, Mike’s presentations go beyond simply educating the audience to provide them with actionable steps they can take to transform their lives and work environments. His reputation as a dynamic speaker provides confidence and peace of mind to meeting planners everywhere.
