Ex-professional athlete, motivational speaker, and superhero advocate, Tanner Gers is passionate about teaching people how to become the superheroes of their own lives. The inspiring communication expert is a national champion in three sports, a U.S. Paralympian, and a Para Pan American gold medalist. Gers has authored multiple books, started multiple businesses, and delivered motivational speeches and workshops to organizations like Salesforce, Wounded Warriors, and Dartmouth College. In his spare time, Gers is Executive Director of an international nonprofit digital consultancy. Here’s the thing, though: He accomplished all of this, and earned four college degrees, after waking up in the hospital at age 21, totally blind.
