Grant’s extraordinary achievements and universal message of survival has helped him to become a renowned and sought-­after keynote speaker. While his own story is one of overcoming a significant challenge, Grant’s message isn’t about obstacles. It’s about Deciding What You Want in life, Focusing on What IS Working, and at all points Choosing Positivity Through Adversity—these are Grant’s 3 Points of Possibility, the keys to meeting adversity head-­on and overcoming it joyfully.
