Noted Adventurist and Motivational Speaker Coming to Southeast



Oct. 27, 2010 — Thomas Dismukes, noted adventurist, humorist, storyteller and world record holder, will present “Die Empty – Living to the Limits of Our Limited Life” on Thursday, Nov. 11, at Southeast Missouri State University.

Dismukes will speak at 7:30 p.m. in the University Center Ballroom. Admission is free.

Dismukes’ appeal is universal. For more than 16 years and in 19 countries, audiences have rolled with laughter and have applauded with inspiration at this man who does more than motivate and educate… he touches peoples’ lives. He discusses how to live life and to give it “everything you’ve got” each day. His message will not only keep your mind and body well, but will also tell you how to “live well.”

Dismukes will be on campus as part of the Department of Recreation Services’ University Wellness Program presented to all students, faculty, staff, and their families. The community is also invited to attend. Information about Dismukes’ adventures and program can be found at
