Terry was a member of the Canadian Track Team that competed in the 1980 Paralympics and has distinguished himself as the third blind person in the world to run the mile in less than five minutes.
Terry Kelly is a recipient of the prestigious King Clancy Award; has been presented with honourary Doctorates in Civil Laws and in Fine Arts for “his contribution to humanity”; and has been named to the Order of Canada.
Terry’s motivational presentation explores the importance of communication; confronting our fears, dreams, goals, challenges, choices and responsibilities; understanding and celebrating our differences; balancing our business and personal lives; team building and collegiality; and the value of enthusiasm.
Using personal anecdotes peppered with humor, songs and audience participation, Terry addresses these issues and encourages individuals to develop their own values and strategies for living and working happily and healthily.
When an organization chooses to have Terry deliver a presentation at their conference, Terry will discuss with them the theme, the purpose, and the objectives of the conference and the workshops. Through this dialogue Terry will customize his presentation for the respective group.
One of Terry’s gifts is that he inspires both children and adults to make the most of their lives, and in doing so, changes the preconception of what people think it means to be challenged.
