Are today’s challenges keeping you or your team from realizing the potential that lies within? If so, this is the perfect experience for you! Learn to gain a greater vision of success with Lex Gillette, four-time Paralympic medalist, four-time world champion, and current world record holder in the long jump for totally blind athletes. Gillette is a globally recognized track and field athlete for Team USA, and inspirational speaker, who has been featured in outlets such as ESPN, Sports Illustrated, NPR, Fast Company, and People Magazine.

Here’s what you can expect:
You’ll be tasked with going through a couple very simple writing exercises, all without using your sight.

You’re probably wondering, so we’re going to discuss how Lex trains and competes as a totally blind athlete. Here’s a little secret: anything significant involves others, and it’s teamwork that has helped him compete successfully and win gold medals.

We’ll talk about his team dynamic, and we’ll even talk about the teams you’re a part of and he’ll share some tips on how you can be an even stronger teammate!

Lex is training for the 2021 Tokyo Paralympics. Join him on a brief tour around his training facility.

Lastly, his slogan is “NO NEED FOR SIGHT WHEN YOU HAVE A VISION.” You’ll have a brief chat around the power of vision and how we can use our vision to guide our actions daily!
(GREAT FOR GROUPS!)

Wow, that was incredible. Felt like I was hanging out with a superhero for an hour. Such a priceless experience. Lex’s story was inspiring and the tour of the Olympics facility was so cool. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone really, individuals, families, or corporate teams for a team building experience.
