What you'll do

This experience will be a short story followed by the opportunity for Q&A.

I will share my journey as an active PE teacher who endured a life-changing accident that left me paralyzed from the chest down. I’ll talk about the process of rebuilding myself, trying to accept the “new me,” setting a new goal of learning to ski, and becoming the best skier I could be. I’ll share my story of joining the GB Para-Alpine team, competing at the Winter Paralympics, and becoming the 2011 European Champion.

After I share my story, I will answer and discuss any questions or reflections, whether perhaps they’re related to a listener’s own particular set of circumstances or related to my story in greater detail.

There will be pictures and videos to accompany the story.

Meet your host, Talan

Paralympian · Representing Great Britain · Host on Airbnb since 2021
  • Identity verified
For the past 15 years I’ve told my story to a wide range of clients—from five-year-olds at primary schools to the senior management of large corporations.

I’ve learned to deal with huge setbacks in life, found that there is a huge internal strength within ourselves, and that everyone can achieve incredible things, so long as you tap into your own ability and believe in yourself. I have often been told that my story is powerful, and it has helped to be the catalyst of change that brought greater sense of value and worth to life.
