One Hand Clapping: Paralyzed but not Powerless

Wait ‘til you see your dignified male executives struggle with “Bro’s Bra” and your audience conquer the “One Handed Banana”. What challenges do you face? What goals are you trying to reach? What would happen if every leader in your organization focused on abilities rather than disabilities – on what can be done rather than what can’t? Would there be anything you could not accomplish? One Hand Clapping is not just a “feel good” motivational speech. Against one-in-a-million odds, Kate Adamson overcame total paralysis from a devastating stroke. This survivor of Locked-in Syndrome will prove that paralysis is not powerlessness. We can achieve the impossible by focusing on the possible. Kate inspires audiences from coast to coast to overcome personal and organizational paralysis and sends audiences back to work motivated and inspired.

Amazing motivational and inspirational presentation. Your story brought some to tears and everyone to their feet.  Having you as a speaker was my best decision.

One Hand Clapping: Appreciation before Accommodation

Kate Adamson, a survivor of Locked in Syndrome proves how ability most certainly rises from the ashes of disability; how those who persist in spite of disabilities, can develop uncommon determination, creativity, and resourcefulness – and isn’t that what employers are looking for? Audiences return to work with new appreciation of the value of accommodation – and wonderful memories of a great convention!

A wonderful gift of hope. A fantastic opportunity for us. We will never forget your courageous journey.
