Joe O’Connor: “I can’t tell you…”

…how proud I am to present to you seven of the world’s most amazing, inspirational, and thought-provoking speakers. They are appearing with me at the online Standing on the Shoulders of Giants Event on October 30th.“ 

Joe will share the stage with leaders who have brilliant backgrounds in business. They also have strong, heartfelt connections to the military. Some have served, or have loved ones who have, or they feel strongly connected to the Forces. Combining those passions creates a powerful set of messages. Messages with huge relevance and value to everyone in business, ex-military or not.  

Joe’s absolute driving passion is to help military veterans who find it tough leaving the forces. Too many struggle to find their feet out on civvy street, and often feel isolated and without purpose.  

The statistics around these veterans are heartbreaking. The mental struggles, family breakdown, alcoholism, drug addiction, and homelessness are well-documented.  So often the problems go unresolved simply because the right helping hand isn’t there when it’s most needed. That’s exactly why Joe founded the charity, Transformation for Veterans. 

When you buy a ticket to the Standing on the Shoulders of Giants Event, it's not just for you. Your ticket provides a real, life-changing opportunity for a veteran in need of support to attend online too, for free. Plus ten per cent of the proceeds – not the profits, but a straight ten per cent of the cost of a ticket – will go to the charity.  

The ultimate aim of Transformation for Veterans is this:  

  • To provide a training, counselling and conference centre in the heart of rural Cheshire. 

  • To support veterans who struggle after they transition from military to civilian life. 

  • To create a range of training packages, to help equip veterans with many of the skills they need to succeed.  

  • To build lodges on-site that will allow short stays, for veterans and their families.  

It is a fact - reconnecting with loved ones after extended periods away can be difficult. This is especially true if you’re returning with injuries and trauma. The Transformation Centre will be a safe and supportive place. Somewhere to rediscover skills, abilities, and passions, all the assets they already bring. And having realised what they can do, learn how to use those assets in a non-military environment. In other words, how to cement relationships, find new goals, and plot new paths that lead to a great future.  

That’s some ambition - and if anyone can carry it off, it’s Joe O’Connor. He’s a man who has, twice in his life, been so severely injured that he’s been told he won’t walk again. But here he is, on his feet, running several successful businesses. And now Joe is hosting an amazing day of inspiration, education and fun. 

Do you, or someone you know with a military background? Perhaps you have connections to the Forces, or support those who serve their country?  

If you're in business, or want to be, please come along and join us at the event – it would be fantastic to have you with us.  

Book your place today and remember for every ticket sold another will be donated free for a veteran!
