You can book our very own 'Superhuman Mike Newman' as a guest speaker
Born completely blind, Mike always had a passion for cars, so much so, it was his life’s ambition to become a racing driver.
But, as you can imagine, this ambition came with many challenges. No blind person in history had ever achieved this goal.
However, just because he is disabled, doesn’t mean he’s UNABLE. Mike worked tirelessly to live his dream, and through grit and determination to succeed, he worked alongside a local Jaguar dealership, to acquire a racing car that would enable him to do it.
Fast-forward over a decade, and Superhuman, Mike Newman is an 8 times World Record Holder as well as the CEO and co-founder of the Speed of Sight charity.
