Inky Johnson Speaker Biography


September 9, 2006. It started as a normal college football game in Neyland Stadium. If anything, the event was an afterthought, dropped into the schedule at the last minute.

For Inky Johnson, though, the game changed everything. A routine tackle turned into a life-threatening injury, and nothing has been normal for Inky ever since. Not with a paralyzed right arm. Not with daily pain. Not with constant physical challenges.

His dream had always been to play professional sports. You might think his injury would have destroyed his motivation and crushed his spirit. But that’s only because you don’t know Inky.

Who is Inquoris “Inky” Johnson? He could be described as the survivor of an underprivileged past. He could be described as a refugee of poverty and violence. He could be described as a success story stained by tragedy. But if you look deeper, you’ll discover something else.

You’ll see a man who looks in the face of defeat and says, “Am I really failing, or is God prevailing?” You’ll see a man gripped by the promise that God has purposes and plans far beyond our own. And you’ll be inspired by his relentless determination, which he loves to impart to others through his dramatic story.

Inky has a master’s degree in sports psychology from the University of Tennessee. He devotes much of his time to mentoring athletes and underprivileged youth. He and his amazing wife Allison live in Atlanta, Georgia with their beautiful children, Jada and Inky Jr.

Inky shares on a range of topics. Some of them include:

1.Choices 
We have a choice of how we will live our lives.

2.Honor and Legacy 
Despite what we go through we must always keep two things in mind-honor and legacy. Honor the ones that came before and leave a legacy for the ones coming behind you.

3.Empty the Bucket 
You must give everything you have to everything you are involved in all aspects of life. 

4.Process over Product 
The process is about what you become on your journey. The personal growth you achieve during the process is way more significant than the product (outcome, goal, dream aspirations, etc).

If you focus solely on the goal you wish you meet, if you give yourself permission only to celebrate your accomplishments, you'll completely miss out on one of the most amazing things about this whole process: your personal growth.

Each step of the way, every hurdle and every success is an opportunity to reflect, to celebrate and to revise your process accordingly. By putting all of your attention on the end result, you'll forget to take a look at all of the changes that are occurring as you're finding your way.

Inky was great! We had no idea what to expect considering this was our first time hosting a guest keynote virtually but he was really engaging and energetic. His personality and his drive are infectious and impressive even through the computer screen. The Q and A at the end was great. He was super down to earth and answered everything from the heart! Highly recommend!
