What People Say..

A real, sincere and honest reflection on Joey’s personal experiences. A presentation of the difficulties one individual & his family had to endure and still he managed to stay focused and positive in reaching for an almost impossible dream. Joey manages to share his story with passion and raw emotion. He reads his audience extremely well and ensures their full attention with an inspiring message that the universe will challenge everyone on their path but that one can overcome difficulties and achieve just about anything with the right frame of mind.

As a competitive endurance athlete for most of my life I could, from Joey’s introductory words, relate with his sense of goal setting and real life challenges. Joey does not only tell his story with passion, but also draws his audience in with the necessary articulation of an excellent speaker. I introduced Joey to a ICT company, which I thought was a little risky, but his energy and zest for life was embraced by all in the audience with many words of gratitude spoken to me for getting Joey to speak. Highly recommended for any crowd or small group.

Joey Evans brought such incredible energy to our conference and people walked away feeling like they could accomplish anything. The common sentiment from people having heard the talk was that true passion, commitment, dedication and perseverance can overcome any and all obstacles.

His relatability and easy going manner made connecting with him and his story very easy across all demographics. An amazing human with an even more amazing spirit.

We live in a world dominated by bad news and littered with shattered dreams. And then, every once in a while along comes a “Joey Evans”. Someone who dares to dream. Someone who rises above the odds. Someone who epitomizes the indomitable human spirit. Someone who gives us hope. Someone who suggests that we too can overcome our challenges and that there is indeed a silver lining to even the darkest cloud.

A great story of endurance and perseverance that universally translates to all areas of life. Truly inspirational to all who attended the talk and a great motivational mind set to take us into 2018, with the theme “We did not get this far to only get this far!”

The first thing that struck me about Joey was the joy in his eyes. The second thing was that HE is ACTUALLY that guy….you know, the miracle-guy. 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 for forever.

Joey’s presentation is an authentic and touching emotional share of his dream to pursue an unthinkable goal. A goal that would take him more than ten years to achieve and see him facing numerous challenges, including an accident that would paralyze him. 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 Evans tells his unbelievable story of grit and resilience in the most engaging, humble and humorous manner. Not only does his journey demonstrate the power of the human spirit but also the incredible support he received from his family and community in helping him achieve his dream of racing the Dakar Rally. Never give up! You don’t have to be a motor bike fan to love this story. His book “From Para to Dakar” is a must-read enhanced further by hearing him tell you the details himself. His message touched a diverse audience moving most to tears by the end of the evening.
