Chad is a best-selling author, world-class wheelchair athlete and president of his own communications company. In 2001, at the age of 27, Chad’s life changed in an instant when a 2,000-pound bale of hay shattered his neck, leaving him a quadriplegic. But Chad’s dreams were not paralyzed that day—he became an example of what is possible. Chad’s speaking career in the areas of leadership, team building, customer service, and mastering change has brought him multiple honors. He served as president of the National Speakers Association’s Utah chapter and is a member of the elite Speakers Roundtable (one of 20 of the world’s top speakers). As a member of the National Speakers Association, Chad travels as many as 300,000 miles a year, captivating and entertaining audiences around the world. The Wall Street Journal named Chad as one of the 10 Most Inspirational People In The World. In addition to his speaking accolades, Chad set a world record in 2003 by wheeling his chair from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas for a distance of 513 miles.
