Visionary Entrepreneur and Bestselling Author
Isaac Lidsky “may possess the most eclectic resume in entrepreneurship” according to Inc. Magazine. For example, he graduated from Harvard College at 19 years old with a degree in mathematics and computer science; and later graduated from Harvard Law School magna cum laude. He served as a law clerk for Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg; played “Weasel” on Saved by the Bell; and transformed a struggling $15 million concrete subcontractor into an industry-leading $150 million construction services company in just five years. Perhaps most strikingly, Lidsky has accomplished all of this, and more, while blind.
Recognized as a visionary thought leader, Lidsky explains his empowering approach to living and leading, while sharing his insightful lessons on overcoming both personal and professional challenges.
Lidsky’s book, Eyes Wide Open, hit the shelves as a New York Times bestseller in March, 2017, and his TED talk, What Reality Are You Creating For Yourself?, was viewed more than a million times in 20 days.
Lidsky is an advisor to a $1+ billion tech “unicorn”, and he has been appointed to State leadership positions by the Governor of Florida, and to a federal position by a U.S. Senator. He was also named one of four Temple Bar Scholars by the United Kingdom’s Inns of Court, and brought to London for a month-long idea exchange with UK Supreme Court Justices and leading barristers.
Regularly featured in national and international media, Lidsky has been featured in outlets such as Forbes, MSNBC, 60 Minutes, CNN, Business Insider, Men’s Health, People magazine, the National Law Journal, and the American Bar Association Journal. He is regularly asked by the media to provide his commentary on the construction industry, leadership, and entrepreneurship.
