I empower audiences by spreading my story of turning trauma into triumph and how to live a limitless life. With a captivating and humorous account of how I was able to learn to lead through one of toughest times of my life, I inspire each person in the audience to influence their organizations, careers, teams and personal lives in an impactful way that will last long after the presentation is over. My mission is to help people realize the potential in obstacles and see challenges as opportunities for success. Although I cannot see my audiences, in each presentation I help them see how to effect positive change into their own lives.

What to Expect
Program: “My Life's a Blur”
Jeremy Poincenot describes the dramatic experience of shifting from fully-sighted, happy- go-lucky college sophomore, to legally blind, World Blind Golf Champion.
While initially feeling depressed about his vision loss, Jeremy soon realized that he needed to focus on what remained possible, rather than dwell on what he had lost.
Through his honest and moving account of learning to not only accept but embrace his blindness, Jeremy delivers memorable insights the audience can easily implement to become more resilient in the face of adversity.
Hearing Jeremy speak will make everyone in your audience respond to life's obstacles in a different way.
At age 19, Jeremy Poincenot suddenly became legally blind due to a rare genetic disease with no treatment and no cure. By learning to use attitude to turn this challenge into an opportunity, Jeremy won the World Blind Golf Championships at age 20. He now travels the world inspiring audiences to overcome their own life challenges, and empowers them to be more resilient when faced with adversity.
