I have recently been asked to speak at Napier College part of Edinburgh Uni on disability issues.  I am CP sufferer who is also a motivational speaker and ex sn judo champion.  What issue would you talk about if it was you speaking ?

    @Judomandean for me it would depend on if the students are studying something in particular or if it will be mixed.


    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!

    How exciting @Judomandean Congratulations!!

    I do quite a bit of public speaking, and I think the best talks are something you are really passionate about.  What would you like to hear if you were going to a talk?

    I think I would like to hear about your journey to being a judo champion, that sounds really exciting!! Id like to know  how you got there, what challenges you faced and what were the highlights of your career.
