Sheldon R. S. Crocker
Sheldon was born with a physical disability called Arthrogryposis, which causes a lack of muscular development, contraction at most joints, and designed unable to crawl. When he was young, doctors thought he would never walk on his own. He had braces on his legs, and a bar between his feet connecting both shoes, until he was about five years old. Sheldon learned to walk by placing his back against the wall, sliding along. The only way he could get downstairs was to sit on his bum, and bop his way down the steps. Crocker's unique and unforgettable humor infuses his powerful talks, inspiring his audience to pursue their dreams. Several national news programs and networks have featured him, including Global News.
The MerB'y Documentary and Calendar also included him, making history for the first person with a disability to appear in such a publication. In Dale Carnegie's training, he won the Human Relations Award. He is a chorister in Stella's Circle Inclusion Choir for the past seven years. Currently serving as Vice President of Education for Iceberg Alley Online Toastmasters, he has spoken at the annual general meetings of various social justice organizations. He is passionate about his message, compassionate and empathetic with other people and humble with personal lived experiences of actually dealing with the issues he talks about. Among his best achievements, he has published a book titled “KEEP on WALKING - A Transformative & Inspirational Journey.” He says his disability is not a barrier.
Brendah Ndebele (MBA, MA, CQSW) used to suffer from a long list of severe health challenges, due to living with an autoimmune condition. Fatigued and overweight, she certainly didn’t have her feelings screaming gratitude. Despite her challenges and life’s hustle and bustle, she made sure that her own life is full of gratitude, joy, and fulfilment. In the turnaround that followed, she transformed her whole life through adopting a healthy lifestyle specifically plant based eating and daily exercise. She lost 82 lbs (over 37 kg), and she became a marathon finisher at age 65. Her doctor has been pleasantly surprised at Brendah's transformation, especially as it's all her own doing! Now she can help you win your life back, see you regain your health and wellbeing, and build your life around your passion and purpose!
