1 Programs By This Presenter

Jim Abbott was born with one hand, but learned to adapt to his situation, eventually going on to become a Major League Baseball pitcher. In an amazingly inspirational speech, Abbott teaches that, in order to move toward our goals, we must be willing to adapt: to change and mold ourselves in order to meet the obstacles in our own way. Using ADAPT (Adjustability, Determination, Accountability, Perseverance, Trust) as an acronym, Abbott strings together a powerful set of words that provide a framework for audiences as they strive to reach their full potential. Audiences will walk away inspired, motivated, and ready to ADAPT to any challenge that stands in their way.


“Jim Abbott hit it out of the park. The qualifiers and guest are still raving about him. He was great. Thanks for all your help!”

— Mutual of Omaha

“Jim was definitely the star of our annual supplier event. People were charmed by his demeanor and presentation style and they were truly moved by his message. The feedback we got from attendees about how Jim’s message affected them was phenomenal. We try to top ourselves every year in terms of our programming for this event – but I really don’t know how we are going to be able to top Jim. We may just have to bring him back!”

— Lucent Technologies

“Jim Abbott is awesome. You could hear a pin drop during his speech. Frankly, I am not a baseball fan, don’t really know that much about it, but it really didn’t make any difference. His speech – to me – had little to do with baseball although the stories he wrapped around his words did. We laughed, and many of us (me especially) cried as he wove his touching story of his life and experiences overcoming his handicap. He is charming, very receptive to our guests, and he was willing to take the time to go to our luncheon, pose for pictures, and answer questions from anyone who asked. I now know more about human behavior since I’ve met and heard Jim Abbott. It was a great experience.”

— Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc.

“Jim’s story is very heartfelt and inspiring. Many of our audience (male & female) were very touched and wanted to share their stories with Jim. As a professional speaker, Jim was very easy to work with and very humble. He was a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend him to others.”

— International Warehouse Logistics Association
