Motivational Talks

After breaking his neck in 2017, Ed was forced to retire from professional rugby and contemplate a life quite different than the one he was used to. After defying opinion, belief & a bit of medical science along the way Ed is now submitting mountains and showing others that anything is possible.

Ed Jackson

Ed has a truly motivational story to tell. His presentation style is confident yet humble as he takes you through his journey from being a professional rugby player to becoming quadriplegic, how the movement of his big toe reduced a hospital room of people to tears and the strength and determination he put into not only surviving in his situation but thriving.
