”He has been blind since birth… Despite this Hein Wagner has many accomplishments to his name. He has completed the Absa Cape Epic, ran the Antarctica Marathon, the Two Oceans and New York Marathons, completed full Ironman, completed the Cape to Rio Yacht Race, holds the World Blind Land Speed Record at 322.52 km/h, and recently received a golden key from the university of Stellenbosch for his ongoing efforts towards social upliftment.
Hein Wagner is living proof that despite the challenges that come our way, anything is possible. He does not allow his blindness to stand in the way of his dreams and people often refer to him as the blind man with exceptional vision.”
I’ve been working as a full-time international keynote motivational speaker the world over for the last 15 years and my audiences vary from small executive leadership groups of 10 – 40 people all the way up to 15 000 people at global kick-off events for top international brands. My success as a speaker comes down to my authenticity and my story telling approach based on my own experiences. My purpose in life is to inspire people to turn huge obstacles in to major opportunities as that is exactly what I did with my blindness.
“You are one of the most fearless and truly inspiring people I have had the pleasure of meeting. Your presentation at our annual staff kick-off event was received with laughter, tears and a standing ovation from an audience of more than 500 staff from around Africa. Not to mention that nearly two weeks after the event you still being talked about! Thank you Hein for sharing your truly inspirational story with us and for showing us that anything is possible.” – Brett Parker – MD SAP Africa
