Jason Laing : TED Talk Motivational Speaker
On the 18 of March 2015 whilst training for the provincial and SA Track cycling championships on a velodrome track, where he reached speeds close to 70 km per hour, Jason suffered a devastating accident which left him fighting for his life. He suffered severe brain injuries along with 32 areas of his body either broken, dislocated, compressed or collapsed along with internal bleeding of the brain.
However, Jason’s determination to survive and recover was greater than any injury he suffered. His resultant unique brain processing ability including the processing of complex algorithms to provide innovative solutions to high performance teams, combined with an absolute passion to enable others, makes Jason the most impactful speaker for 2017.
Jason’s story of courage and hope has resulted in him being selected to participate as a speaker in the international TED Talks in Nairobi earlier this year. His story will amaze and inspire those who hear it. Jason is currently a finalist in being selected for training at the NASA research facility in California.
