"Chad's story was incredibly inspiring. He has such a positive attitude towards life and you can see that he is someone that truly lives each day to the fullest. His message really resonated with our group and applied to everyone either personally, professionally, or both. If you're looking for someone that can deliver a powerful and engaging presentation, look no further. Chad is a great speaker and role model for us all. We were honored to have him speak at our meeting." George Kinigopoulos, Managing Partner, MassMutual Greater Washington
"What a fantastic testimony Chad shared with our youth at Nakina Baptist Church. 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."
Life Changing, Inspiring, Want to hear it again!
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. Thank you, Chad, for sharing your story. I am glad I heard it twice!
Thank you so much for your guidance and mentorship. As a small business owner, it is imperative to have Mr Porter help and guide you. If you need motivation and don't know where to find it, quit looking. Chad Porter is your guy! Above all that, he is a very giving person. He stepped up for a fundraising event I was having for a dear friend with cancer and knocked it out of the park.
"Just wanted to let you know that he was EXCELLENT. I was very impressed with him. All of the students should hear his story. Thank you for doing this."
"Chad Porter is such a fantastic person. He delivers a message of hope and determination that makes a huge impression in such a positive way. Noble students and staff were talking about Chad's story all day long. There is no doubt that his words and personal experience will be remembered for a lifetime. Very powerful and uplifting! Thanks for being a great role model and showing all of us how to live life to the fullest."
"My kids were so engaged. You are a great speaker. You were doing something you loved when tragedy hit, and you handled it with such perseverance. Your talk is opposite of the old speeches where the drug addict becomes hero. You are always the hero! All kids should hear your story."
