Recounting stories from his decades of cutting edge expeditions Timmy’s dynamic storytelling engages and inspires the listener. Via many adversity filled journeys with adaptive athletes, Timmy talks about the "hard earned wisdom of disability” and the various ways that we can inspire ourselves to overcome our own challenges.
O’Neill combines his daring adventures with social impact to share the wisdom and unique perspective gleaned from a life lived on the edge in wild landscapes.
"Through wit, humor and just pure high energy Timmy can engage a crowd like no other on this planet.
He is simply the best there is."
Ken Yager | Founder & CEO of the Yosemite Climbing Association
"Obviously, his climbing stories are incredible, but what set him apart from other speakers were the dimensions to his career beyond climbing. It is inspiring to see someone who pours himself completely into both climbing and doing good in the world without compromising on either."
Julia Marie Schaepe | Stanford University
Timmy was spectacular. We were laughing, crying, laughing again, as he stretched our thinking about ourselves and our possibilities. His closing activity (which shall remain a surprise) was a beautiful and powerful exercise, with a big ripple effect. TO is one special person, one special presenter.”
Chairman & Founder Prouty Project
There was a greater moral that stretched its back across Timmy’s presentation and left the room inspired and motivated to create change in the world, to have an impact on the lives around them—not to mention it was hilariously entertaining. Timmy is funny, charming, and passionate; he holds a wealth of wisdom through his stories and travels, and energy through his jokes and charisma."
