 Alvin Law Biography

Like you, keynote speaker and bestselling author Alvin Law has heard a lot of cliches about thinking positively. But are any of them true? Does thinking positively really guarantee success in life? Should we force ourselves to think positively, no matter what our situation? Will mantras and soundbites change how we view ourselves and the world? Or are we looking at it the wrong way?

With over three decades of professional speaking and over five decades of experience living life without arms, Law’s view is radically different. His mission is to inspire others to be accountable, to stop accepting their own excuses and to instead make choices.

After hearing Law speak, people start asking themselves “What’s my excuse?” They are challenged by his message to find the strength we all have within ourselves to change and to discard the labels they have allowed to define their lives and create limitations.

Law knows, and demonstrates to his audiences, that his message is not about touchy-feely platitudes or that if we ‘just think positively everything will be be better’. His message is about how we look at life and how we all have choices. It is a skill that can be learned, and that must be practiced. It is a tool that can be used. Most importantly, it can’t be imposed upon people — it has to come from a genuine place.

Law uses his story to challenge audiences to rewrite the negative stories they tell themselves about themselves; to stop feeling like victims in their lives; to stop making excuses and start making choices. His fusion of storytelling, musical performance and down-to-earth humour connect with his audiences at an intimate, intense and individual level.

Over 7,500 organizations on five continents, including Merck & Company, ConocoPhillips, Kosmos Energy, Caribbean Association of Banks, Alberta Energy Regulators and GolfTec., have engaged Law to ignite, engage and transform their people.

Born with no arms as a result of the drug Thalidomide, Law was adopted by a family who taught him to use his feet for hands and who by doing so gave him the gift of freedom. In addition to being a professional speaker, Law is also a broadcaster, fundraiser, award-winning musician and bestselling author. He has earned the designation of Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), an honor possessed by less than ten percent of professional speakers worldwide. In 2009, Law was inducted into the Canadian Association of Speakers (CAPS) Hall of Fame. And in 2018, Law was inducted into the very prestigious Canadian Disability Hall of Fame, one of the few speakers to have two Hall of Fame Designations.

Prior to his career as a professional speaker, Law worked for nonprofit groups, in advertising and public relations, the civil service, and has even run for public office (unsuccessfully, but he got over it). He has appeared on countless telethons and media features, and has been the subject of two award-winning television documentaries. He has played a direct role in raising over $225,000,000.00 for charity.

Law shares his life with his wife and business partner, Darlene, and Murphy the rescue dog (yes, Murphy Law) in beautiful Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
