Biography

If we could achieve anything, what would it be, how would we feel and what would we have to do? They are pretty big questions but when answered we see opportunity, we clarify purpose and we achieve some pretty awesome things.

Cam Calkoen was born with Cerebral Palsy and told that his biggest challenges in life would be the way he walks and talks, but in focusing what he ‘CAN DO’ he embraced his opportunities to become:

  • An athletic gold medalist
  • A charitable fundraiser
  • A social innovator
  • An Inspirational speaker

Walking and talking have become Cams greatest strengths and passport to traveling this world. How? Why? Because he believed in his dreams, he set the bar high, he learnt from the best and was quick to learn that the only thing getting in the way of his most desired accomplishments would be an undesirable attitude.

With 14 years experience speaking and 3 years as a full time professional speaker Cam is 1 of 12 New Zealand speakers to become a Certified Professional Speaker (CSP) and only 1 of 761 to globally acclaim this recognition. Cam is a speaker who’s continually developing his craft and tailoring his content to see him generate a long lasting impact with clients that include; Fonterra, AMP, Frucor Suntory, McDonalds, RE/MAX, KPMG, Mercury Energy, Viacom International and over 100 other clients each year since 2014; from award evenings, to gala dinners, government, corporate and industry conventions.

In 2015 Cam spoke on the TEDx platform about how simple words inspire big actions, Cam moves people to see and believe things that they previously couldn’t see within themselves, to be gooder than good, greater than great and to indeed live for awesome!
