Lorin’s powerful messages, captivating delivery style and incredible guitar playing, coupled with his unrelenting determination through adversity and infectious enthusiasm for life always leaves an indelible imprint on the lives of everyone he meets. Whether it’s giving your team a motivational pep-up, or developing greater initiative, vision and leadership among your staff members, or refocusing your company’s direction and business positioning strategy, Lorin is renown for his profound ability to communicate, innovate and accelerate individuals and organisations towards higher achievement.

With an amazing story to tell, Lorin is real, completely engaging and absolutely inspirational!

Previous experience

Bike: Creating Australian history, Lorin along with blind younger brother Dean, were the first blind persons to ride tandem pushbikes across Australia, in a four week epic journey covering over 4000km from Perth to Sydney.

Riding solo: With unrelenting grit and determination, Lorin ignored the negative talk from the naysayers and skeptics, when at age 16 he achieved the seemingly impossible, by riding a solo pushbike 275km over the third steepest mountain range in Australia, from Tamworth to Port Macquarie with less than 10% eye sight.
