Chad's Bio

The Wall Street Journal calls Chad Hymas
“one of the 10 most inspirational people in the world!”

Chad inspires, motivates, and moves audiences, creating an experience that touches hearts for a lifetime. He is one of the youngest ever to receive the Council of Peers Award for Excellence (CPAE) and to be inducted into the prestigious National Speaker Hall of Fame.

 

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.

“We do this particular kickoff event as a team each year and have done so for the last five years. Without exception, everyone said that your part of the meeting had the most positive effect on them of any session or speaker we’ve ever had.”

“In the years that I have been in this organization, I have never seen a standing ovation given to one of our speakers. It’s tough to impress or to move this group and when I saw the spontaneous eruption of applause while everyone got to their feet, I knew I was seeing something very special.”

“Wow, what a powerful presentation! I had one of our powerful CEOs approach me and say, ‘I haven’t cried in 25 years, and I was balling like a baby.’ In my profession, I have the privilege of listening to and entertaining some of the best speakers around. You were the very best. Thank you for being a real-life hero.”
