“Blind Ambition” with Chad Foster
September 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT
Can you imagine going blind as a teenager? When most people were preparing for the adventure of adult life, Chad watched the world he grew up fade to black. But that didn’t stop him from becoming the first blind person to graduate from the Harvard Business School leadership program and climbing the corporate ladder as a successful Finance/Sales executive.
He works at Red Hat, one of the most innovative tech companies and the world’s largest open-source software company. With determination, ambition, and drive, he created what Oracle said would be impossible. He gave hundreds of millions of people the ability to earn a living by becoming the first to create customer relationship software for the visually impaired. With speaking invites from London to Beijing, and the Atlanta Opera crafting a story inspired by his journey, Chad inspires people to overcome their own blind spots.
