Norton, CThe Power to Stand

Chris Norton

Everyone faces change and challenges, but no one should be defined by them. Chris suffered a severe spinal cord injury playing college football and was told he would never walk again. He defeated all odds and walked across the stage of his college graduation which has been viewed over 300 million times across the world.

Chris calls us to focus on response, instead of situation to be defined by attitude rather than circumstance. He shares a compelling story filled with laughs, tears and life changing moments that give audiences hope and a new perspective. He demonstrates how attitude, effort and purpose can navigate the most challenging obstacles.

About the Session

We all deal with change, no matter how big or how small, no matter who you are or where you come from. Life and work can change quickly and knock us down, but what’s important is whether or not we will stand back up. This keynote dives into the essence of what it takes to have the power to stand, how to persevere through the most challenging obstacles and how to navigate change in life or work.
