Cam Calkoen - That Awesome Guy

Exceed Expectations

“You know when you have an idea and you’re like ‘I can do that.’ I inspire people to get it, to dream even bigger and achieve more.” 

Inspirational Speaker

Small words inspire big actions!

Instead of worrying about the way I talk and seeing my speech as an impediment I decided to see it as an accent and was inspired by the greatest speakers in the world to then speak all over the world.

Social Entrepreneur

Learn from our experiences to move, connect and inspire others!

Instead of worrying about what people may think about me, I decided to give them things to think about, to mentor, coach and inspire others.

Charitable Fundraiser

Living for a purpose bigger than self!

Instead of worrying about what I didn’t have, I was inspired by those who “had it all” to see what I could offer them, to build capital and relationships that could make a world of difference.

Athletic Gold Medalist

The reasons for saying YES are often way more awesome than the perceptions for saying no!

Instead of worrying about the way I walk I decided to be inspired by the greatest athletes in this world to become a full-time athlete and then go on to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Cam was born with Cerebral Palsy and his life has been “normal” for him since birth & his life would have carried on in whatever direction he chose to take it.

The fact that Cam chose to extend himself way out of his comfort zone to have done the two things doctors said he would never be able to do, and to a very high level (running & speaking) means the message he delivers is very powerful and unique.

In a few words “Cam delivers a unique message that inspires people to believe things are possible way beyond their thinking”.
