Jeremy Poincenot, Keynote Speaker
In addition to being a 3-time World Champion and 8-time National Champion, Jeremy uses his struggles and successes on and off the golf course to inspire players and non-players alike. He leads by example, showing that with a positive mind, a ton of patience and someone to help line you up every now and then, even obstacles that seem insurmountable can be opportunities for success.
At 19, Jeremy was your typical San Diego State University sophomore. Friends, sports, fraternity and most importantly, 20/20 vision. Then it happened with no warning, no time to prepare, and life began to blur. Over the next few months he lost central vision in his right eye, followed closely by his left. The diagnosis: a rare genetic disorder called Lebers Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON), a disease with no treatment and no cure in sight. At first, Jeremy thought losing his sight meant forfeiting his life. But he soon learned that with every challenge comes an opportunity for greatness.
Now, Jeremy inspires people all over the world, encouraging others to gain perspective in their own lives. In each interaction, the message is that life is about making choices, and if you choose to have a limitless outlook, resolute purpose and add a hint of humor, anything is possible.
Jeremy helps people understand and embrace perspective. Most specifically, he speaks on the power of independence and its importance to their personal and professional success.
**BONUS: Not only will you hear Jeremy's presentation and workshop, but you will also have the chance to play golf with him!
