His profoundly moving and inspiring story will challenge you to think about your own life, your purpose, and your goals, leaving you feeling that nothing but you, can stop you from achieving what you want in your life.

Joey’s humbleness, gripping story-telling skills and pure grit took me from tears to laughter within seconds. He delivered a perspective changing message which will resonate with me, probably forever.

You don’t have to be a motor bike fan to love this story. His message touched a diverse audience moving most to tears by the end of the evening. Never give up!
