With a mission is to spark a worldwide Attitude Revolution, he uses his story to challenge and inspire people to rewrite the negative stories they tell themselves about themselves; to stop feeling like victims in their lives and get proactive; to stop making excuses and start making choices. Over 7,500 corporations, organizations and groups on five continents have used Alvin to ignite, engage and transform their people. On stage, he shares secrets to meeting—and conquering—life’s many challenges.
Alvin was born with no arms as a result of the Thalidomide drug, and he was abandoned as an infant by his birth family, who were overwhelmed with his tragic prognosis of a life void of quality or independence. Thankfully, he was adopted by foster parents who nurtured him, teaching him to use his feet for hands. In doing so, they gave him the gift of freedom.
Alvin was inducted into the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers Hall of Fame, has spoken on five continents to over 2,000,000 people, and is the author of the bestselling book Alvin’s Laws of Life…5 Steps to Successfully Overcome Anything.
