Presentations to educate, motivate and inspire

Paul Spence, founder of P.A.U.L For Brain Recovery and brain-injury survivor, faced a life-changing injury in 2012. But instead of allowing his injury to define his future, Paul took himself on a journey of transformation.

And now, he tells his story to educate, motivate and inspire.

Developing resilience isn’t easy. Paul’s journey hasn’t been straightforward. He’s encountered many problems, setbacks and obstacles along the way, experienced many hard-fought battles and learnt valuable lessons.

Ten years on, Paul has defied the odds. He’s travelled the globe undertaking marathons, climbed Kilimanjaro, completed Iron Man UK, and undertaken swimming, running, cycling and hiking challenges. His aim: to become his best self physically, mentally and emotionally.

But perhaps most importantly, Paul set up P.A.U.L For Brain Recovery, a charity designed to support, guide and educate others which incorporates the many learnings from Paul’s lived experience.

I believe Paul’s story could stop these young lads being violent and think about the consequences.

The whole presentation was great. It was all very informative especially from a first-person experience as you’re able to share so many smaller but very important aspects of the experience.

Really inspiring talk – so valuable to hear Paul’s experiences. It felt like such a privilege to hear about his journey and the talk has really helped me to better understand what it’s like to experience a brain injury and what the journey can bring. Thanks so much.

Incredible talk. Extremely inspiring. Really useful to understand the experiences of someone with a TBI.
