After ten years of public speaking, I know how to enter a room and instantly connect with my audience. I roll onto the stage, begin to tell my story and I can see that all eyes are on me. The audience is listening, engaged and waiting to hear more. But I wasn't always a great public speaker. I had to learn how to be great. Following my 2010 injury, I became a sought-after public speaker. People really wanted to hear my story. But if public speaking is challenging for the average person, imagine not being able to walk across the stage or gesture with hands and arms for emphasis. I had to come up with my own game plan for success. During this interactive experience, I will provide tips that anyone can use to be a better public speaker. I will teach my audience how to articulate their story, and how and when to use it. At the end of our experience, each participant will get the opportunity, if they’d like, to practice with the group. Most importantly, I will ease fears around speaking and help boost confidence to speak in front of anyone.
I am an author, activist, philanthropist, and public speaker. On October 16, 2010, the course of my life was altered. I was a junior at Rutgers University and a star athlete on the football team with dreams of joining the NFL. During a game, I collided with a player and fractured my C-3 and C-4 vertebrae. Doctors gave me a zero to five percent chance of regaining neurologic function. After months of rehab, hard work, and determination, I began to regain movement in my shoulders. In 2013, I created Team LeGrand of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation; our mission is to find cures for paralysis and improve the quality of life for people living with spinal cord injury. Through Team LeGrand, I have spoken publicly in every venue imaginable, from packed stadiums to corportate events and classrooms with young students.
Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation
The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by advancing innovative research and improving the quality of life for individuals and families impacted by paralysis. Our mission can be summed up into four words, “Today’s Care. Tomorrow’s Cure.”
