Dean is not a sporting hero or the Demtel man, he does have an amazing story of life's struggle from a perspective that not many could imagine or handle.

This is a tragic and debilitation disease with no cure, usually containing an early death sentence. Dean has baffles medical science with his survival and his struggle for life. There are many from all walks of life that can learn a great deal from this young man.

Dean is now 29, he was not expected to live past the age of 5. Dean's day is one filled with incredible pain and hardship, none of which he allows to impede the pursuit of his dream. Motivational speaking, sharing his life story, thereby inspiring others to dream and to believe in themselves. Dean is an ordinary bloke with an extraordinary gift, you will never look at life in the same way again.

Dean's journey as a Motivational speaker started simply and honestly, he is committed to helping others through his own personnel experience. This was not intentional ----it is a gift he has and if you allow yourself the opportunity perhaps the emotional roller coaster --that is Dean's life will inspire you as much as it has inspired thousands already! You owe it to yourself and your company, in fact you deserve Dean!
