JOHN DAVIDSON BIOGRAPHY

John Davidson considers himself an ‘accidental’ professional speaker and author. His first career spanned 30 years in radio and television in London, ON and with Vancouver CBC Radio and Television. His second career, the one he hadn’t planned on, began to unfold in 1995 when he went from being a news reporter to a newsmaker.

John’s career path and life took a hard turn when he learned the news that one of his sons faced a life-threatening illness, muscular dystrophy, for which there was no cure. John left the security of his job and comfort of his home, to set on an incredible 3300-kilometre journey pushing his son Jesse across Ontario in his wheelchair.

But this was just the beginning. Three years later, he found himself still working on keeping his promise to his son to find a cure. And so, at the age of 52, John set out to walk across Canada. He spent 286 days on the road walking 33 kilometres a day. In those ten months, his journey spanned six times zones as he walked more than 8300 kilometres. He found Himself driven by inner strength and sheer determination.

He certainly never once dreamed that what he started would end up raising millions for medical research, targeted at finding a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

With the many challenges and enormous difficulties he faced throughout his journey across Canada, John Davidson can tell you that he would make the same commitment and do the same thing. Quitting was never an option. He felt he had no choice. John was prepared to do whatever it took to help his son and others with the same disease.

John Davidson discusses the power of promise and the importance of commitment for success. He has discovered that our most rewarding relationships rest on a solid foundation of trust that is built by keeping your promise. Successful business people, the ones who make it to the top, know that their promise is that unbreakable contract they are going to keep. He’s not suggesting that it’s easy to keep your promise. In fact, it’s often difficult and demanding, and it can sometimes take a very long time to fulfill. Keeping your promise tests your character and determines who you are.

Along life’s road, Jesse and John Davidson have received several honours, such as the Order of Ontario, the Government of Canada’s Meritorious Service medal, a Guinness Book World Record, and an opportunity to meet Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

John Davidson draws from the tumultuous times on the road and the moments of joy and support throughout his journey with his son and their travels. John inspires audiences by drawing on the importance of doing the right thing always no matter the situation. His story is one of resilience, trust, hope, moral guidance, and self-accountability.
