Inspiration in the Face of Adversity- 'Austin's Story'

20th February 2020 at 5.45 pm

University College Birmingham


Main Speaker: Austin Birk

In the wonderful world of projects ‘How do you stay in control and remain positive in the face of demanding customers, stakeholders and project deadlines?’.  It can be tough right?  Now dial up this intensity ten-fold and ask yourself ‘How would you cope with all this and be told that you have just weeks to live as a result of life-threatening cancer?’.  That’s a far more personal and demanding challenge, which puts one’s own existence into stark perspective.  To answer that question, you need one extra-ordinary person.  Step forward, front and centre, Mr Austin Birks.

Austin was faced with this very news a little over a year ago.  A proposition not many of us could cope with, let alone get to grips with.  Come and hear from Austin as for the first time, he shares his remarkable story, in his very own words.  Celebrate the successes and feel the setbacks of his incredible ‘rollercoaster’ journey in battling all the odds, together with the challenges that still lay ahead.  Be totally inspired by the action he continues to take, the positive mindset he’s mastered and how he gives his all to each and every day.  Learn what his maxim ‘Never Give Up, Never Give In’ truly means and what it could mean for you. 

As Muhammed Ali once said, ‘Don’t count the days, make the days count’.  Understand how Austin does this by seeing what’s right in front of him, and how he uses it as a powerful motivational force to overcome every obstacle and challenge.

Austin’s journey has it all.  Tragedy, comedy and above all, lust for life.  This is a human story, all said with true grace and appreciation.

If you have a question for Austin, please add a note when prompted during the Registration process and we'll make sure there's an opportunity for it to be answered.
