You need to inspire people.
Who Better Than Me?
My speaking endeavors have allowed me to inspire professional athletes Wesley Walker and John Tavares of the NHL to help me raise funds for the Foundation Fighting Blindness.

You need to adhere to the Americans with Disabilities Act in the workplace.
Who Better Than Me?
As a New York State Licensed Social Worker (LSW) in my role as a case manager and compliance coordinator at Family and Children’s Association, I assisted individuals living with mental illness to obtain and sustain employment in workplace environments conducive to success.

You need to hire someone who personifies perseverance.
Who Better Than Me?
When I was diagnosed with Retinal Degenerative Disease, a career counselor told me I was “unemployable”. Throughout my search for employment, I ventured to form my own company, Michael J. Kalberer Presents. Now my life’s work is to educate people to maximize their personal strengths and see others as more than their condition. I’ve also written an interdisciplinary curriculum to assist professionals working with people with disabilities in diverse environments.

Who better than me? Michael Kalberer Entrepreneur, Self-employed

You need to instill an attitude of teamwork to increase productivity.
Who Better Than Me?
While I was on the Community Advisory Board of the Hofstra University Healthcare Challenge, I instilled an attitude of collaboration that directly catalyzed the victory during the competition.

You need to hire someone who can show that diversity is a strength and not a weakness.
Who Better Than Me?
I’m Michael J. Kalberer. I transcend cerebral palsy and Leber’s Congenital Amaurosis.
