Blind Ambition:
How to Envision Your Limitless
Potential and Achieve
the Success You Want

Diagnosed with a pediatric brain tumor, Patricia Walsh became blind at the age of five. As a teenager, she lost what little vision remained due to surgical complications, and the straight-A student began a downward spiral into depression and hopelessness. Today, Walsh is an award-winning computer engineer and champion paratriathlete. She has raced in more than a dozen marathons and ultra-marathons and competed in two IRONMAN triathlons. In 2011, she set the world record for blind triathletes. Join us tonight as Walsh both inspires and educates by relating her unforgettable personal story while detailing her proven Fuel / Fire / Blaze approach to achieving any goal.

PATRICIA WALSH is the founder of Blind Ambition LLC, a speaking and business consultancy that specializes in goal achievement keynotes, as well as seminars on the topics of motivation, overcoming obstacles, leadership, creating a winning mindset, and team building.
