About Tim Conners

Inspirational Speaker, Sightless Visionary, and America’s Ambassador of Hope.
A diagnosis of cancer, going blind in 48 hours, and experiencing heart, lung, and kidney failure would probably mark the end of someone’s life, especially for a 15 year old, but for Tim, it was just the beginning of an adventure he never saw coming.

From the intensive care unit of Boston Children’s Hospital to the summit of Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, Tim has traveled the world inspiring people with his story of how the power to control our lives is in our hands’, not our circumstances.


Author of It’s Impossible Until You Do it, Tim's goal isn’t just to give people hope, but to provide them with the tools he used in his own life to succeed in the face of adversity.


His message has touched the hearts of billionaire entrepreneurs, NFL players, celebrities, educators, and his personal favorites, the students he volunteers with, and no matter how old, famous, or rich, the consensus is the same: when Tim starts talking, people start listening.


Winner of the Presentation Power Million Dollar Panel Pitch Competition, recipient of the Most Outstanding Speaker Award from the UCLA LEAP program, and Summa Cum Laude Communications graduate from Ithaca College, Tim demonstrates again and again his ability to connect with others and what it means to live your life to the fullest, make a difference, and redefine possible.


He believes succeeding with others is succeeding in life, and like so many were there for him in his darkest days, he has dedicated his life to being a light for others whether it be through the relationships he forms, the hundreds of thousands of dollars he helps non for profits raise, or the people who come up to him after he finishes speaking to tell him his story is exactly what they needed to hear.
