Imagine this. You’re 26 years old and you get the news: You’re likely to become blind. 10 years later you’re almost completely blind. That happened to international speaker Joost Rigter, and today he only sees 0.8 percent.
Is life less beautiful now? Absolutely not, says Joost. He made living with a disability a positive thing. He did this by focusing on his talents, the right mindset and just getting back to work. He has since founded three companies including the Chairmen at Work, a platform for blind and visually impaired masseurs.
Joost’s keynotes deal with topics such as overcoming challenges and obstacles with acceptance and the right mindset. As humans, we like to be in control of things. Unfortunately, this is not always possible, especially not in the rapidly changing world with so many different influences around us. What happens when we lose control? If things don’t go the way we are used to? As a true optimist, Joost makes it clear that you can also find strength in every challenge or obstacle. Something he has practiced himself.
During his presentation, speaker Joost Rigter invites his audience to take a look at his life. By literally taking his audience into the dark, he lets them experience what it’s really like to have no vision. He takes his audience out of their comfort zone and gives them the opportunity to make contact in a different way, both with themselves and with others.
By changing perspective, the circumstances within the company can also be approached in a different way which ensures growth! Joost’s unique story can inspire and help any company. He has previously spoken in front of clients like Walt Disney, Dutch Railways, KLM, UWV, Deloitte, ABN AMRO and Sony.
