Josh Sundquist - February 27, 2018

In his speeches, Josh shares stories about losing his leg to cancer, ski racing in the Paralympics, and playing jokes with his artificial leg to instill motivation for overcoming adversity and reaching peak performance. Josh tailors his message for each audience so that his presentations are a one-of-a-kind combination of spectacular entertainment and practical, customized inspiration. You will walk away from his speech with a renewed sense of hope for the future and a determination to do one more thing, one more time to maximize your potential in work and life. You will carry Josh's universal message of courage, determination, and hope in you heart and mind long after his speech.
