Making it Happen

Managing For Results In A Depressed Economy

Tom Whittaker speaksFollowing his star, Tom Whittaker came to the United States to become a world famous mountaineer, until a drunk driver shattered his legs and crushed his dreams. The story of how he reinvented himself to become an agent of positive change is outstanding. Add to this, taking a ‘never walk again’ prognosis to the summit of Mount Everest; you have the caliber of this man and the potency of his message.

Tom Whittaker uses three short video clips that transport his audience into the heart of the Himalayas and place them on the summit of the world’s tallest mountain. With the passion of a man deeply in love with life and humor that resonates from within, Tom Whittaker takes us on an emotional roller coaster that makes any adversity we face seem like a bump in the road.

Whittaker’s presentation is not about falling down but about getting back up and finishing the race, no matter how lofty the goal.

His focus is not about disability; it is about ability. The ability we all possess to learn from experience and turn adversity into triumph.

Whittaker’s message is about being part of a vision that is bigger than one’s self and making it happen.
