Everyone is gifted, but not everyone realizes their gift and leads a fulfilling life. Many fail to recognize their true purpose and passion in life. One of the main culprits is that people begin to believe the false labels stuck onto them by their family, friends and society. Over time they begin to shackle themselves with these labels. This stunts their potential to fulfill their dreams and aspirations and they become prisoners of these labels.
Gobinder Gill, himself, was once labelled as stupid, ugly and one who would amount to nothing. As an immigrant orphan child he endured more obstacles in life more than one can imagine: he suffered all kinds of abuse and racial prejudice, ate from garbage cans, weighed 61 pounds at the age of 13 and had no jacket in minus 30 degree winters. However, he refused to believe the naysayers who said he wouldn’t amount to anything. He followed his passion and built a distinguished career in the broadcasting industry where he found himself once again facing prejudice and naysayers.
Gobinder Gill looks at the fundamental flaws we all face and offers practical tools and techniques to free yourself from self-imprisonment. He offers private consultations, public speaking engagements, seminars and workshops.
Gobinder will customize and tailor any presentation according to your organization and your desired learning outcomes. Gobinder can present any topic related to diversity in either a keynote or workshop format.
