Based on the true life story of an exceptional sportsman, professional dancer and national acrobat (6x times South African champion). It all changed in seconds, when Martin was left paralysed from the neck down, This keynote is a triumph of the human spirit to overcome any adversity.
A practical journey on how our brains trick us into taking the easy way out. Our brain is our greatest hurdles in life, it stops us from reaching our full potential every single day! But there is hope…!
At some point or another, life punches everyone in the face. The punch may be hard, or it may be soft, but it’s definitely coming. Our success or failure is largely determined by the answer to a simple question: How well can you take the punch?
What really resonated with me was the idea of the “man who had put him in the wheelchair”.
Often, we do things to ourselves and yet we do not recognise this. We look to blame people and circumstances; yet indeed we are responsible for our outcomes. Martin’s message really encouraged me to introspect and become more and self-aware. I was both encouraged and challenged to accept accountability for the decisions I had made but moreover, to move forward and take charge of my future.
A VERY BIG thank-you for organising Martin and Siphiwe. They were fantastic and each speaker hit the right note with Mbuso’s team. They incorporated everything that they were briefed on in their presentations and engaged with the audience.
Martin was fantastic! He did exactly as the brief stated. Delegates loved him and many were in tears at the end of his talk. He engaged well, asked questions, was vulnerable and even made time for a few photos with the delegates. Very impressive thank you.
