Chris Koch: Finding Humour and Resiliency in Life’s Challenges
Born without arms and legs, Chris Koch has never let limitations or obstacles stand in his way. As a motivational speaker, he shares his inspirational message of “if I can” to inspire his audiences to also continually challenge themselves and build the life they dream of.
Chris spoke about how he uses humour to put people at ease and engage with audiences, and how it’s become the foundation of his resiliency in the face of whatever life throws at him.
He also shared insight into what challenges he faces day to day, saying that it isn’t physical limitations that stops him but his fears and his mind, just like many of us.
Chris was raised in the small farming and ranching community of Nanton, Alberta. Early on, he learned that he would not be raised with pity or sympathy. Sure, he had to do things a little differently and some tasks took him a little longer to complete than others, but he was determined to be just like the rest, and was always treated just like the rest.
Chris loves sharing his story and spreading his message of, “If I Can…” An avid traveler, marathoner, and farmer, his presentation reflects his full life.
