Executive Transformational Expert & Life Success Strategist


A member of the National Speakers Association (NSA), Dr. Emile Allen exhibits the insatiable drive and magnetism of a leader and a survivor.  The moment Emile walks into a room, you know that you have met the ultimate combination of both.  An accomplished surgeon specializing in urologic oncology, he not only built three successful private practices with a cherished roster of patients, but also was the Chief of Urology and Vice Chairman of Surgery at Scripts Memorial Hospital, San Diego, California.  Emile certainly had success by the tail.  Little did he know that his near-death experience, as a result of a tragic accident in the operating room, would switch his role from beloved doctor to a patient fighting for his life.

This life-changing event profoundly redirected his personal and professional life, leaving him without a career and with fears deeply etched on his psyche for over a decade.  Emile calls these fears ‘the tiger’.  His true stories, which are captivating and entertaining audiences nationwide, teach us how to embrace our ‘tigers’ in order to live a more empowered life.  Emile provides us with hope and valuable insights so that we can have a ‘do-over’ in our lives, too.  His laser-sharp lessons mixed with his electrifying charisma provide a heartfelt perspective on finding your inner brilliance.  Emile offers a clear approach on how to identify and embrace ‘the tiger’ within all of us.  Through his guidance, you will come to realize the many gifts life’s challenges have to offer.
