About Keynote Speaker

Jonathan Goodwin is considered one of the greatest theatrical daredevils of all time. In a career spanning nearly thirty years he was hanged, buried alive locked in a box covered in 200,000 bees, he was attacked by sharks and rattlesnakes, hung from his toes from helicopters and from his teeth seventy feet in the air. Jonathan starred in shows on broadway, London's west end, radio city music hall, Sydney opera House and for the private birthday party of Queen Elizabeth II.

In October 2021 Jonathan was involved in an accident which left him critically injured and permanently paralysed. In just a few short months Goodwin was out of hospital and moving forward a life that was now taking him in a completely new direction. Far from being inhibited by his paraplegia Jonathan Goodwin is positively thriving and helping and influencing others to overcome their own personal physical or psychological challenges.
