It's Time to Talk, lets turn it Inside Out !
With the title 'INSIDE OUT', my talk is a pin dropping presentation on how at age 5, when instantly and permanently I was blinded in one eye, I went on to achieve a personal life long goal of becoming a pilot. During my 75 minute presentation, listen to how I explain how I became the first and only individual in the world, trained post accident sight loss, not just as a qualified Hot Air Balloon Pilot and a licensed Helicopter Pilot, but how I went on to own and fly Ireland's only wheelchair accessible Hot Air Balloon. A strictly private and personal project, where I use this unique opportunity to share my ballooning passion with all my wheelchair using friends. I love sharing this sport, now everyone gets a go !!
Coming up to speed, I have just turned 49, and within my talk, I invite you to come with me as I share with you, my coping and can do attitude with my inoperable Gastro Cancer and how, by sharing my ongoing daily personal fight with the outside world, via this, my popular blog, you can listen to how I have gone on to inspire others. (You do know how much I hate that 'Inspire' word, but I am told I need to use it).
'INSIDE OUT' is exactly that. It puts out there not just what makes me 'tick' and face up to and grab with both hands the fierce challenges I have beaten and goals I have achieved, but this talk also shows how I 'tock' as I battle and indeed continue to chart my ongoing serious illness on a daily basis. This is one story a secondary school or forward thinking business or progressive company does not want to miss. It IS real, it HAS happened, It IS happening, it WILL change you all for the better, and it is called 'INSIDE OUT'
Thank you so much for dropping by and reading my blog.
