Keynote Speaker

Kelsey Tainsh – I’m Not Limping. That’s Swagger! How shifting your perspective can dramatically boost your potential!

More than ever, we are facing increased stress from constant change, competition and disruption. But 33 year-old stroke survivor Kelsey Tainsh will remind you that your worst day is better than the best day for billions around the world. Armed with her quirky sense of humor, engaging stories and relevant message, Kelsey helps organizations and their people gain the perspective needed to overcome any challenge in their life and in their work. Audiences walk away with a resilient new mindset and a fresh appreciation for the gift of work, accomplishment and the relationships we all share.

Kelsey Tainsh has been through more in her 33 years than most will endure in a lifetime. Successfully overcoming a brain tumor at only 5 years of age, Kelsey went on to be a happy, healthy kid and a champion athlete. 10 years later, at 15, it all came crashing down when the tumor returned followed by a crippling stroke. Her friends had disappeared, her right side didn’t function and she became paralyzed with fear and self doubt.  Despite her significant physical challenges, she worked hard to pull herself up and charged back into life graduating magna cum laude from the University of Florida and going on to work for one of the most recognized companies in the world – The Coca-Cola Company.

Today, this remarkable young woman has become a champion for the rest of us. An acclaimed professional speaker and para snowboarder, Kelsey travels the world speaking to organizations and corporations about the power of persistence and perspective.
