Logan Aldridge lost his arm at the age of 13 in a wakeboarding rope accident, but refused to let that determine his path, going on to become a Crossfit competitor, coach, and co-founder of the Adaptive Training Academy (ATA), where he serves as the director of training.
ATA supplies equipment and training to enable people with disabilities to undertake a wider range of exercises.
CEO and co-founder of Boxed, Chieh Huang, reminded the audience that anything is possible through his humorous journey of turning his company into a success after beginning in his garage, and now reaching annual revenue over US$100m and a CEO rating of 98 out of 100.
Alison Hadden used the latest psychological research and drew from her own personal experience battling advanced triple-negative breast cancer to explore why humans avoid the topic of death, the motivation behind her No Time To Waste project.
Through a combination of wit, intensity, and insight, Hadden challenged the audience to confront this universal inevitability head-on in pursuit of a highly intentional life, focused on gratitude, human connection and joy.
