Book John Davey for speaking engagements & events.
His legs fell off, and half his arms went missing.
John will be the first to admit that, up until then, he hadn’t lived an exceptional life. But, as it turns out, John is an exception.
In the days, or weeks, leading up to his birthday, John crossed paths with meningococcal disease. It didn’t kill him. But, while in a coma, busy not dying, John also contracted septicaemia. It was the septicaemia that caused John to lose both his legs and his hands.
From a medically induced coma, heart attack, kidney failure, eight months in various hospitals, enduring numerous medical proceedings and various infections, ‘lost weekends’ in drug induced psychosis, and then arduous rehabilitation, 2018 was not his best year.
Or was it?*
Three years on, John is now a disability advocate, public speaker and an ambassador for ‘Social Health Australia’ sharing his lived experience overcoming adversity.
Spend some time with John as he shares with you:
RESILIENCE – It can be as simple as ATTITUDE – and that fork in the road
Sweat the small stuff – [proportionately] – you never know, one day your legs may drop off!
AMPATHY – new word, old concept – ‘walk a mile in my lack of shoes’
CONNECTION – It’s all about ‘the village’ and how that village has been lost
*No, it wasn’t
