Interview with Tom Fitzsimons

Learn more about the inspirational former alcoholic, Tom Fitzsimons in his interview with A-Speakers. Read on below.

What is the message you hope people take away from your presentations?

I try to illustrate the power of recovery and  show that no matter where you find yourself by making the right choices and you can turn a seemingly hopeless situation into a positive one. I would like the audience to be inspired to make positive changes to their own lives no matter how small.


What made you decide to become a professional speaker?

My first talk was to a small group of 14 year old disadvantaged children, their reaction to hearing my story made me realize that I could change lives by reliving my mistakes, and successes.  I also wanted to show that an addict could make changes to become a positive member of society,  contradicting increasing press coverage to the contrary.


How are your keynotes unique?

My keynotes are extremely powerful, brutally honest and  mixed with a spattering of natural Irish humor they are  truly captivating.  They are told passionately and with integrity,  and are not a lead in to sell a conference or a book.  I have a real desire to change lives, in that one encounter.


What types of audiences benefit from your keynotes?

My talks are life based and suit a wide range of audiences, I have spoken to  Athletes, School and University Students, Business men and women.


What personal characteristics are most important for an alcoholic in the process of becoming sober?

Selfishness, determination, a recognition and self-belief that change can happen, and knowing you are as important as anyone else.


Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I choose not to look that far ahead, sometimes if we look too far ahead we miss the opportunities right in front of us
