Andy Wright is a unique personality, having struggled through life's adventures to make sure he benefits from and gives back to the world using his assets and skills.
My life as a human being is, in my opinion, pretty straight forward. Where it becomes complicated is when the cerebral palsy influences what I wish to achieve! Things are generally made more challenging for me when people say ‘You’ll never do that’, such as winning my black belt in Karate, or walking.
As far as public speaking is concerned, whatever your particular topic I will aim to include some relevance in my talk; for example talking about employment to businesses, my world travel to travel Agents, School life to children etc. I can talk for as long as you need whether that’s for an after dinner event, School Assembly or a Conference.
The subject matter will always be based around my life and experiences and I will try to tailor the content and length to the age and ability of the participants.
