Lunch speaker, sponsored by UAC, is magician Brad Manuel.
His presentation, Nothing is impossible, is about perception – what you perceive is impossible, he makes possible.
Brad will share some challenges and personal speed bumps he has had to overcome.
At the age of 17, a workplace incident blinded him in one eye. Surgeries saved his other eye. That life-changing incident led Brad to a new career path.
He has now been diagnosed with a rare, debilitating neuromuscular and autoimmune disease that limits his ability to use his hands. At one stage he could not do up his shirt buttons or put his hands in his pockets. Brad has a daily mental and physical regime, that amazes even professional athletes, just to do simple things most of us take for granted … that’s magic.
It’s a fun, entertaining and inspiring presentation.
