I was born with a disability on my right leg known as clubfoot. I started swimming when I was eight years old. I had the great privilege of participating as a swimmer in five Paralympic Games: Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Beijing 2008, London 2012, and Rio 2016. Between those Games I brought home 20 Paralympic medals, including nine Golds.

I’m here to share my journey with you, and to talk about how we have to adapt while facing adversity. Focusing on your goals will be our main subject during these fun online Experiences. As athletes we learn how to be resilient. We go through failures and, as a result, we learn to identify what works.

I believe that the ability to be resilient is one of the most powerful skills to have when trying to achieve an objective.

Ben came and presented to my team and ALL I have heard is wonderful things (myself included). He is funny, relatable, and his message is incredible. If you want a presentation that hits all notes and encourages Growth Mindset- Ben is definitely for you!

Ben was a great host and a super storyteller. My team and I were enthralled from start to finish, and I'm excited to apply some of the lessons we learned!

Ben was great at sharing his stories - the hour just flew by when we were all so engaged and inspired at the same time. Some of us had goosebumps watching his video and could virtually felt the pride and honour with him as if he was sitting physically in front of us telling us his journey! The goal setting tips that he built into his session were invaluable too - he had the right amount of message delivered with great examples that tied back to his swimming journey. Will definitely recommend this experience to friends, colleagues and family!

Ben and his story are an absolute delight! We decided on his experience to help boost our teams moral during a time of covid-work-from-home burnout. Ben surpassed our expectations, even had some of us cheering him on during our hour as if we were sidelines at one of his races! Thank you, for reminding us why it is important to start with the 'why'

Amazing story and storytelling. It was incredibly fascinating and inspiring to have "live" commentary on competition and the mental state of the athlete as the events were unfolding. Definitely would recommend to anyone!

Ça m’a fait plaisir de dialoguer avec Ben, personne très sympathique . c’est un privilège de pouvoir parler avec un athlète professionnel face à face pour ce montant , donc je recommande Ben aux autres parce que son histoire est captivant et son parcours d’athlète est édifiant car les autres pourraient tirer leçon pour avancer. Merci encore Ben.
