“Two Hands on the Wheel”
From a young paratrooper who lost my hand to a complete person, full of motivation, I refuse to let my physical limitations stop me. I became a businessman, entrepreneur, and inventor. I have a wonderful wife, am a father and grandfather to incredible children and grandchildren. Come hear how to turn lemons into lemonade, and if you like, even into limoncello.
Sports with two legs and one hand – everything is possible

I compensated for the loss of my hand by developing a variety of creative gadgets which allow me and others to fulfill our dreams. I promise you a most inspirational – and humorous – story. A journey that will make you leave with a smile on your face and insights on how to reinvent yourself.
“To surpass the wall and to conquer the summit”
A lecture on motivation and innovation. How we get over any obstacles, physical or mental, climb over that wall, while using innovative thought, and with the knowledge and information that we collect from our environment, develop non-conventional ways and solutions to reach our goals. How we turn into innovators. How we identify a niche or an opportunity. What pushes us.
From losing a hand in a war to becoming an athlete, businessman and entrepreneur
An entrepreneur who redefined himself: As a 19-year-old paratrooper in an elite unit during the Yom Kippur War, Ofer found himself without hands. His right hand was amputated, while the other crushed. From an outstanding tennis player he became a confused cripple.
Ofer decided to take on the challenge and grow from there. Endless motivation and effort turned him into a success story. In his words, the injury lead him to heights that he wouldn’t have otherwise reached. Over the years, Ofer became a businessman and entrepreneur of leading brands of food chain solutions and for athletic devices for the physically challenged.
