Unbelievably, just one year after his remarkable athletic achievement, Jeff was again diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease. This time, six months of chemotherapy were prescribed to put the cancer into remission. Jeff received his last chemotherapy treatment on Valentine's Day, 1986. He showed up for the occasion in pure Blatnick fashion--wearing a tuxedo.
Today, Jeff is one of the premier motivational speakers in the country. His personalized presentation is, simply, first-rate. Jeff's enthusiasm, sincerity, and love of life have kept him focused on a single purpose: overcoming adversity. Using personal experiences, Jeff guides people through the different perspectives we commonly formulate when facing challenges or adversity. Perception influences our attitude, our performance and our ability to set goals.
Whether a large corporation or small business, his presentation can be tailored to fit nearly any theme. Civic organizations, associations, health organizations and schools are all frequent clients. Regardless of size of audience or an intimate or formal setting, Jeff is comfortable in creating and delivering a presentation with impact. In addition, the best follow-up is to mingle and talk with the audience afterwards, which Jeff does with enthusiasm and charm.
Jeff's work includes television appearances as well. He has worked for all the major networks as an expert analyst for the sports of wrestling and combative martial arts. NBC has utilized his skills the past four Summer Olympic Games and he's ready to be part of the Olympic broadcasting team for Athens in 2004.
