BIOGRAPHY

Winston was predicted to live a life of isolation and pain due to a rare bone disorder that stunted his growth, and caused his bones to be extremely fragile (fracturing more than 150 times by age 12). Despite his small stature (3 feet tall) and use of a wheelchair, Winston has taken a stand for a quality of life that knows no excuses and no limits.

After graduating with a degree in Computer Science, Winston built a successful corporate career in the technology industry. He is an award-winning speaker, whose powerful message continues to inspire audiences worldwide to break through their own self-imposed barriers. In 2018, Winston delivered a TEDx talk titled Your Limitations Are An Illusion (see opposite) that has had a massive impact online.

Winston has become extremely popular for his keynote and guest speaking appearances due to his ability to deliver inspirational and practical content, in a humorous and relaxed style. He has partnered with several global organisations and conferences and some of his popular topics include: Overcoming Adversity, Creating Inclusive Cultures & Raising Your Game As A Leader.


WINSTON'S TALKS

Resilience and Change Management - Be Resilient or Resign
One of the biggest factors that hinders organisational change is the resistance of its people. This is often driven by the perception that a change that is occurring also carries a threat to their position or status. Automation, outsourcing and new ways of working are some of the considerations companies need to make in the current economy. This talk teaches your team how to use the power of resilience to not just survive change but to thrive because of it.

Diversity and Inclusion - Creating Inclusive Cultures
This inspired talk provides an insight into Winston’s story of overcoming massive barriers to build a successful career in the corporate world. It challenges your organisation to foster a culture that supports all team members to reach their full potential. It outlines the business case of having a diverse workforce not just for representation and innovation, but also because it is the right thing to do! 

Leadership, Mindset and Motivation - Raising Your Game As A Leader
This thought provoking talk provides your team with practical tips to move away from a victim mentality to a mindset of extreme ownership. The core principle is that we cannot always control what happens, but we can always control our response. An important message for audiences seeking to maintain high performance in challenging environments.

TESTIMONIALS

Absolute pleasure to have you Winston and thank you for sharing those excellent tips. – Oracle

Winston combines very compelling messages with an engaging and positive style. He has received excellent feedback from our people when delivering these sessions. Winston is simply an inspiration. – RSM

Winston really makes you think. Why do we accept what we don't need to accept as our place in life. Why do we blame others when we can accept the situation and take "Extreme Ownership" and work out how to turn the challenges we face to our advantage. Key messages for everyone in life and especially in business conveyed with passion and personality. – MD2MD

We have just been overwhelmed with Winston’s personality and his ability to impact any audience that he speaks to! What we love the most is that after hearing Winston speak, people go away and make drastic changes as a result, which is the yardstick that any speaker should be measured against. – Lifehack Bootcamp USA

It was an absolute pleasure having Winston speak to over 500 entrepreneurs at our BSS event in London. Winston is the epitome of resilience, super engaging and the audience feedback was fantastic! – Breakthrough Success Conference
