“Bonner is a passionate and engaging speaker. His presentations focus on finding the inner strength to move forward in spite of difficult circumstances, facing seemingly insurmountable odds, setting and achieving goals and ultimately, not accepting defeat. An inspiration for children and adults around the world, Bonner Paddock is living proof that one person can make a difference.”

Bonner, you have proven yourself to be a man who unselfishly gives to others and is able to share your testimony in a captivating way. You have a unique ability to deliver your message to be easily understood, while making it a fun, interesting, and allowing us to feel your passion for OMF. You inspired many of our employees to research your foundation and other charities to give back to those in need.
It was a pleasure working with you and OMF. Thank you for all of your efforts in making our key note message a success. Based on your message and OMF, our leadership development team has already signed up to be a part of Team Jake Ryan at the OC Marathon on May 4, 2014. Our Leadership team along with our employees are looking forward to being a part of OM Foundation and giving back to children with special needs. David Riener
On the day of the event, Bonner, Bill, and a few other folks arrived before we broke for lunch on Day 1 of our meeting. From the moment Bonner walked on stage to the moment he walked out of the building, he had the full attention of the Northwest Merchandising Team of over 150 people. His video was amazing, but he found a way to touch every person in that room through his story and message. I filled up my notebook with positive thoughts that he shared that day and have referenced them a number of times since the meeting. There were a number of folks anxious to talk with him and thank him after his presentation, which doesn’t typically happen at a Safeway event. While it’s been 3 months since the meeting, I still continue to hear chatter and comments from my team about that day and every person points to Bonner as THE HIGHLIGHT from an extremely productive meeting. I would highly recommend him and I am sure we will be reaching out to him again in the near future to speak to another group at Safeway. Adam Wampler
“I have been fortunate enough to attend two presentations by Bonner. In the first, he brought his message of hope and inspiration to a group of several hundred patients and caregivers. In the second, he addressed our team at an off-site meeting. The groups at both meetings were blown away by Bonner’s physical and endurance accomplishments but, even more so, by his attitude and perspective on life. Everyone was able to take something away from his visit, whether it be in the workplace or, more importantly, in life. For me personally, I was struck by his story of denial and self-loathing for three quarters of his life before beginning the transformation process into whom he is now.”
