Mark Pollock Masterclass: Turning Challenges into Opportunities
Unbroken by blindness in 1998, Mark became an adventure athlete competing in ultra-endurance races across deserts, mountains, and the polar ice caps including being the first blind person to race to the South Pole. He also won silver and bronze medals for rowing at the Commonwealth Games and set up a motivational speaking business.
In 2010 a fall from a second story window nearly killed him, Mark broke his back and the damage to his spinal cord left him paralyzed. Now he is on a new expedition, this time to cure paralysis in our lifetime by exploring the intersection where humans and technology collide.
About the Masterclass: Turning Challenges into Opportunities
Sometimes we choose our challenges, sometimes our challenges choose us. What we decide to do about them is what counts. During this masterclass, Mark will share how to:
Build resilience and maintain motivation
Embrace change and unexpected challenges
Chart a path through uncertainty
Hope to see you virtually over the next 4 weeks!
