Candace Carnahan

Motivational Speaker Inc.

Lauded as one of the "Faces of the Future" by MacLean’s magazine, Candace Carnahan uses her unique life lessons to inspire us to dismantle the roadblocks that hinder efficiency, while celebrating the attitudes and behaviors that promote success – whether personal or professional. With irrepressible energy, Candace taps into her own experiences to inspire audiences to realize their full potential. She shares her belief that having the Courage to Care through standing up for others is a transformational concept – "If You See Something; Say Something"

The impetus behind Candace’s contagious enthusiasm was a devastating workplace incident in which she lost her lower left leg at the vulnerable age of 21. It was an incident that might also have taken her life, but most important to her – it was preventable. As Candace grew aware that "tomorrow" is a guarantee for no one, she adapted quickly – mentally and physically – to mobilize herself from a potentially paralyzing situation.

Within 10 months of learning to walk with an artificial leg, Candace began her new journey of experience and chronicled her life’s lessons as she backpacked and traveled the world. During that time, she immersed herself in a variety of cultures and gained perspective by doing so. She began to appreciate firsthand that the potential for evoking positive change in our own lives and in the lives of others on a day to day basis was not only possible, but well within reach. Deemed the 'Prophetess of Safety', Candace has shared her message with over 300,000 people worldwide and continues to expand her message to audiences across the globe. She is featured in awareness campaigns across North America, Australia, and Europe.
