Going Beyond Limitations

Sharing frank and personal experiences as a Paralympian and entrepreneur, Gregory stresses the winner’s mindset that challenges the status quo while being deaf to doubts which might dissuade us from pursuing what we know is right. He insists that what defines and distinguishes people is how they leverage and make the most of their limitations and maximize what they do have. Gregory acknowledges both mental and physical well-being are critical and shares his strategies to achieve them. In life, as in business, naming and taming issues while asking for support can be key.

The Hero’s Journey

Referencing Joseph Campbell’s seminal writings on the ‘Hero’s Journey’, this presentation identifies 4 stages of life that all humans transition through as they reach their highest potential.
