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 is a best selling author, president of his own Communications Company, Chad Hymas Communications, Inc., and is a recognized world-class wheelchair athlete. In 2003, Chad set a world record by wheeling his chair from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas (513 miles).

Chad’s speaking career in the areas of leadership, team building, customer service, and mastering change has brought him multiple honors. He is the past president of the National Speakers Association Utah chapter and a member of the exclusive elite Speakers Roundtable (one of twenty 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.

Andy Thibodaeu

Andy Thibodeau was called “Mr. School Spirit” by his college’s magazine when they named him alumni of the year in 2014. This passion for leadership and school spirit started in middle school when Andy successfully ran for student council Vice President. From organizing dances in 8th grade, pep rallies in high school and orientation week in University, Andy’s enthusiasm for youth leadership led to his unique career of inspiring students and staff across the continent.

Since 1992 Andy has delivered thousands of fun inspirational presentations to schools and conferences across North America. Over two million people have seen him speak in all 10 Canadian provinces and 40 US states. Each year over 160 schools, conferences and charities are IMPACTED by his messages.

Andy lives in his hometown of London, Ontario, Canada with his wife and two daughters. London is located a two hour drive east of Detroit. He has his History degree on the dean’s honour list from King’s College at Western University (in London). Andy empowers student leaders because he was always an active student leader: Student Council VP in middle school, Student Council President in high school, and Orientation Week coordinator in University. A highlight of his student leadership career was when Much Music (Canada’s MTV) named his high school the “Most Spirited School in Canada” when he was president.
