About Alvin Law
"The best thing that ever happened to me is being born without arms. It brought me to circumstances never thought possible."
Alvin Law is a Hall-of-Fame keynote speaker and Attitude Expert who uses his story to challenge and inspire even the most resistant, heard-it-all-before audience. As a living, breathing example of the power of attitude, he busts through the self-imposed blockages we all have about who we are and what we can achieve, and provokes us to examine and rewrite the stories we tell ourselves about our role, our abilities and our lives.
Information on online registration, changes, and routes available here.
