EVENT INVITATION: Be inspired to achieve the impossible with Mark Pollock

Join us for breakfast from 8am on September 14th at our London offices to hear the incredible motivational speaker Mark Pollock share the lessons he has learnt about “Achieving the Impossible”.

An extraordinary speaker on resilience, leadership and breaking down obstacles, Mark will share the lessons he has learnt from his astonishing story – how he has fought through blindness and paralysis to become a leading endurance athlete and pioneer in the search for a cure to spinal cord injuries. It promises to be an unmissable event – we hope you’ll be able to join us!

This event is by invitation only so please email Lisa Goll via lisa@chartwellspeakers.com to reserve your place.

 

About Mark Pollock:

 

Mark helps people achieve more than they thought possible. Unbroken by blindness in 1998, Mark went on to compete in ultra endurance races across deserts, mountains, and the polar ice caps including being the first blind person to race to the South Pole.  In 2010 Mark was left paralysed after falling from a second story window. He is now exploring the frontiers of spinal cord injury recovery, walking hundreds of thousands of steps as the world’s leading test pilot of Ekso Bionics robotic legs.

“Mark is a high-impact speaker, much in demand at conferences and after dinner. Mark’s story moves people from making excuses to making it happen. Mark’s incredible story and personal example leaves a valuable legacy long after the conference. Google credited him with “…starting a conversation about challenging conventional wisdom that is ongoing”.”

What a difference 4 years makes: motivational speaker Mark Pollock

Mark Pollock speakerFour years ago today motivational speaker Mark Pollock, a blind endurance athlete, fell from a second story window. He lay in hospital for nearly 16 months – paralysed, blind and psychologically fragile. But, what a difference 4 years makes… Have a look at this short video (above).

A message from Mark

Here at The Mark Pollock Trust we have evolved from supporting Mark in his time of need to seeking ways to fast-track a cure for paralysis that will benefit him and the millions of paralysed people around the world.

Mark says: “Today it is exactly 4 years since the fall that left me paralysed. Everything is different now. Everything. There is the obvious lack of movement and feeling. And, there are the hidden truths of paralysis – the secondary impact that strips me of my dignity every day. The things that I took for granted four years and one day ago are gone. Yet, four years on I can’t help but feel that life is filled with possibilities. The transition has been made with the support of thousands. With your support. And, now we are looking to the future. Thank-you.”

Spurred on by the support that you bring through donations and entering the Life Style Sports Run in the Dark, Mark and the Trust thank you from the bottom of our hearts. This year’s Life Style Sports Run in the Dark is happening on 12th November and with plans well under-way to make it bigger and better we can continue to explore our mission in the Trust. Early bird is open until 31st August.
