Our Clients Say:
Bob Mandell’s story of overcoming a truly substantial health challenge is compelling and it is inspiring.
He has earned the title “Stroke Victor.” Those who have heard his story of recovery have been unanimous in urging him to share his remarkable achievement with others. I am among those who have asked Bob to take his story to audiences young and old. As an Emeritus Professor of Communication at the University of Michigan, I can attest not only to the wonderful story to be told but to the extraordinary skill with which the story is presented.
For the program planner, conference coordinator, or the individual simply looking for a great speaker, with an unbelievable story of overcoming the odds, Bob Mandell is the man.

Bob Mandell suffered a massive hemorrhagic stroke which left him residing in a Connecticut nursing home at the age of 53. He was unable to speak more than two words, incontinent, in a wheelchair, paralyzed on his previously dominant side, and unable to think. Remarried only eighteen months, as he emerged from the “fog” of the stroke he, with his caregiver new wife, Debbie became determined to be stroke victors instead of a stroke victim.
In his search to “beat” stroke and recover his life he experienced traditional physical, occupational and speech therapy. He relearned to walk with the help of aqua therapy. He extended his recovery with the help of a number of little known integrative therapies and became a participant in a number of clinical research studies.
In his efforts to go well beyond the dire predictions and expectations of the professionals, he learned the novel game- changing lessons and developed coping strategies to make up for his deficits. His continual searches, still today, to discover new and better ways towards a better life are the hallmark of his and Debbie’s lives’.
And now his dedication to help others stricken by stroke to also find a better life has led to a new career path as book author, a stroke coach, public speaker and the founding of The Stroke Research Foundation.
Bob is the author of the recently published stroke recovery book, Stroke Victor, How to Go from Stroke Victim to Stroke Victor. The how-to book creates a roadmap to recovery including how to beat depression which is the number one barrier to a constructive new life.
Having witnessed first-hand the confusion and difficulty many families affected by stroke encounter, Bob has started a Stroke Coaching service. The service will help enable stroke survivors and their caregivers to advocate for and locate appropriate after stroke recovery resources and provide useful hints about getting around their depression and handicaps.
Bob has begun a motivational public speaking career focusing on the hows of creating a new life and turning “disaster to good”. He is available for corporate engagements, fraternal organizations and stroke support groups, among others.
And finally, Bob has founded The Stroke Research Foundation, a 501c3 organization whose mission is to improve post-stroke lifestyles. The mission is to “up the game” on advocacy for this underserved disease, fund 21st Century rehabilitation research and to create a new rehabilitation research portal in everyday language to likewise assist survivors.
