Finding a good speaker for any conference can be challenging. But finding a Keynote speaker for a Welcome Session full of attorneys is it’s own special kind of challenge. Somehow, we found Chad Porter. And after looking at his website, his videos, and speaking to him on the phone, we thought he and his story would be a good fit. Still, we had no personal references of him and were wary of how it would go over. Thankfully, I can honestly say that we lucked out. It could not have been more perfect. First of all, Chad is just a great guy. He’s friendly, he’s personable, and he’s flexible to our needs. Secondly, he’s a fantastic speaker and storyteller. He knows how to sprinkle in some humor yet stay serious and true to his message at the same time. Our attorneys and spouses LOVED him. As engaging as he was already, he took it a step further and asked the audience to interact within his presentation. It really set the tone for our retreat. I am so thankful we found Chad, and would recommend him to anyone looking for a great speaker. I wouldn’t classify him as a ‘motivational’ speaker in the traditional sense. Those often times are cheesy and have the same tired message. Chad really serves as a reminder not to take anything for granted and to never give up. Inspiring? Yes. Cheesy? No. Chad – thank you so much for journey out to our retreat and for being such a fantastic speaker, and in general, a great person. We appreciate you hanging out with us after the event as well! Please let us know if you ever need anything!!! Jennifer Bergman
Nick South, Executive Director,
I have heard a lot of inspirational and motivational speakers in my lifetime and Chad Porter was by far one of the best speakers I have ever listened to. His message is clear, moving, inspirational, witty and promising. Chad had the attention of everyone in that building that day, there were laughs, tears and a pure sense of accomplishment and at the end of it, everyone was moved, inspired and able to take something away from it. I truly thank Chad for his message, inspiring words, encouragement and overall accomplishment. Thank you for being such a positive role model and showing us all that there should not be one day taken for granted.
Chad’s inspirational message reaches deep to the core of what matters inside of you. His words resonate with every person in the room. He gently guides you to reach out of your comfort zone and find joy in the simple things. He brings tears and laughter, and motivates you to want to be a better you. He is one of the best speakers I have heard in a very long time. This message of hope, joy, and determination does not disappoint.

Chad Porter is a wonderful speaker with truly inspirational message. I had the pleasure of introducing him and hearing him speak at our district convocation and it was evident that his words moved the crowd. We laughed, we learned, we walked away inspired together. I would recommend Mr. Porter to any organization looking to coalesce their community of stakeholders around a single inspirational message. His energy and his story are both amazing and infectiously motivational. Chad is someone we can all look up to as the paradigm of hope for living the type of life we want regardless of our struggles. Thank you for sharing your message with us Chad.
Mr. Porter spoke at our school’s convocation a few weeks ago. He was engaging and honest. His story reflected the best values and how to push on and encourage others to push on. I loved hearing him speak- he had a very powerful message.
You are amazing and awesome! What you did at our conference this week was so touching! You made a difference with each of us! The best motivational we have ever had! Keep up your great work! Thank you
I have been to many graduations in my life and have heard many “big name” speakers but I have never experienced a more moving and powerful commencement address as I heard today from Mr. Porter. Those graduates received a blessing and will never forget his message. Everyone in the arena is better off after today.
Words can not express what I took from Mr. Porters speech. The things he spoke on will touch and reach each and every person that hears it. I would highly recommend having him speak at any function you may be holding. He’s a God send and a true inspiration to everyone.
We welcomed Chad Porter to our pulpit for our Youth Sunday where he delivered a message that has influenced our youth, children and adults. Indeed we may think that we have our lives planned out but God has a plan for each of us that is so much more meaningful and powerful than we could ever imagine.
Chad is more than a “speaker”, he is more than just a motivator, he is a man that God is using in a wonderful way. He exemplifies the verse in Romans 8….”We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God; those who are called according to His purpose.”
The first time I heard Chad speak it was at a fundraiser. As I listened, I kept thinking “Others have got to hear this!” I especially thought of the youth at my church. How many times in life do we just go through the motions without thought of how things can change so quickly?!
So I invited Chad to come speak at church. It was equally powerful! You could hear a pin drop as he spoke about the details of his accident, how it affected his life, and how he decided not to let a little think like losing a leg keep him from excelling and making a difference.
Keep doing good work and making a difference in the lives of others, its how the world will change, for the better.
So proud of you and the awesome man, husband, father you have become. God is good all the time….
I can still hear the sounds and see the events so clearly. What an amazing boy you were then and an inspiring man you have become today!
You are a brave soul my friend and I admire you for all you have overcome!
Your response to the accident has inspired me for years. A lot of us wouldn’t have handled life with such grace. I’m very proud.
I’ve known Chad for years…he truly is an inspiration! Such a warm personality and a positive person…it’s an honor to know him!
