Speech Topics

Kyle Maynard’s No Excuses keynote is teaching audiences around the world that there are no worthy excuses. No matter how challenging your difficulties may seem, everyone has the ability to overcome; Kyle will show you how.

Maynard was born with a condition known as congenital amputation that has left him with arms that end at the elbows and legs that end near his knees. Crowds are spellbound as Kyle chronicles his life experiences and relates his emotions to each individual group. Maynard’s accomplishments as an athlete speak for themselves, but he believes it’s a part of his mission to show others they’re capable of achieving greatness in their lives as well.

As a wrestler, Kyle lost every single match his first year and most his second, but he wouldn’t quit. Maynard managed to become one of the top wrestlers in the nation, and even broke multiple world weightlifting records – bench pressing as much as 420 lbs!

Mixing humor and hard truths, Kyle understands what it takes to teach any audience to persevere, even when you’re hit with setbacks. We all have things in life we wish we’d do something about, instead of continuing to hesitate. Hearing Maynard may be what finally makes you act!
