About the Presenter
Inspirational and charismatic, Spencer West speaks candidly about the struggles he overcame after losing his legs at the age of five. He speaks about overcoming stereotyping and bullying, about finding meaning and happiness in a material world and how he never lost the hope or courage needed to mount personal obstacles. Infused with humour and humility, his thoughtprovoking message inspires people to find opportunity in every challenge. With every speech, Spencer leaves an indelible mark on his audiences, instilling hope and strong leadership so that they can inspire others to create positive change. Recently, Spencer climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro (19,341 ft.) in order to bring attention to drought-stricken communities in Kenya. His successful bid for the summit attracted worldwide attention and raised over $500,000 for sustainable clean water projects in affected areas. Once again, he redefined possible.
