My TED story
FABIO PADILLA – Inspirational Speaker.
An idealist with the practical vision of an engineer and the passion of a sportsman!
In the growing phase of my career, in a Monday afternoon... few seconds and some “bad luck” coincidences changed my life forever: I fell 6 floors by an elevator shaft in an incredible work accident. That could be the end… I’m very lucky to be alive. And, believe it or not, healthy and very active. Life turned my focus from engineering to social projects: leadership, sports, volunteerism and public speaking became my job. I was the leader of The Silver Fund Project for Colombia, part of a worldwide effort to bring rehabilitation, happiness and opportunities to people with disabilities through wheelchair tennis. Small projects like this one, with passion and hard work, can grow amazingly… changing lives and giving opportunities for many.
Since I am and idealist, TED is my place. I love to spread ideas every time I can.
