Trainer Background:

Michael McGrath

Michael McGrath provokes, stimulates and inspires change. Forget the fact that he is the first disabled person in the world to have conquered both North and South Poles and that he has the debilitating muscle wasting disease known as Muscular Dystrophy for a moment. In May he received the prestigious 2005 Business Traveller of the Year Award in Dubai.

He was included in The Queen’s 2004 Christmas Day Broadcast reinforcing diversity as a strength and earlier that same month, honoured by Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace for his significant contribution to national life. A successful consultant working in the area of diversity and inclusion, he is also the disABILITY Champion for Hilton Hotels.

British born with a cocktail of Irish and Brazilian blood in him and educated by the Jesuits, he is first and foremost a father, leader, motivator and change agent. His remarkable life story is one of consistently challenging adversity. He is both inspirational in terms of his daily battle in overcoming his physical limitations and driven in the way he imparts his can-do ethos to his audience. Articulate in delivery, he is living proof that the remarkable power of the human spirit is alive and well. A real person with real experiences delivering real messages that uplift human consciousness
