Recipe for Success with Guest Tony Carvajal, The Able Trust
Just as there are no two recipes that contain the exact same ingredients or measurements, there are no two success stories exactly the same. Recipe For Success features entrepreneurs, visionary leaders and innovators of all ages who will share their ingredients that make them successful – personally and professionally.
Let's get cooking! Tony Carvajal is President/CEO of The Able Trust, a foundation committed to helping persons with disabilities and Florida employers achieve their shared goal…meaningful and sustainable work that produces results. Established in 1990, the organization directs state, private, and corporate funds to targeted grants, programs, and initiatives focused on realizing the power of work and the potential of vocational rehab. The Able Trust works with partners to focus on abilities- not disabilities- and remove barriers to employment across the entire spectrum of needs, including developmental and learning disabilities, physical and mental health challenges, and injury and age-related developments. The organization works with companies, communities, grantees, and individuals to make work possible for the 1 in 6 Floridians dealing with some sort of visible or invisible disability.
Tony brings more than 30 years of nonprofit management and consulting experience to the role, having helped organizations across the country design and implement plans to address all types of opportunities and disruptions. He recently completed a decade of service as the Executive Vice President (and futurist in residence) at the Florida Chamber Foundation where he developed research, programs, and policies designed to ensure competitiveness, prosperity, vibrancy, and resiliency across the state. Since 2000, he has also served as the “Primemover, Problem-Solver & Calmer of Chaos” at Carvajal Consulting and Management.
Tony earned a Masters in Public Administration from Florida International University and holds undergraduate degrees in psychology and communications from Florida State University. He has earned the designation of certified association executive (CAE) and is a graduate of the US Chamber’s Institute for Organizational Management (IOM) where he received a specialty certification in non-profit management and administration and also served as an instructor for 10 years.
