Living Your Dream – Surviving Your Nightmare
In July of 2014, John survived a major heart attack. This spell-binding story of what happened forms the backdrop for his new presentation about heart health, surviving a near-death experience, and the lessons learned on the long road to recovery. Excerpts from his presentation can be viewed on YouTube — The Moment My Life Changed.
I was privileged to see John Hindle’s keynote at the Toastmasters District 64 Fall Conference. It was a masterful example of a true professional at work. He told the story of his recent heart attack and how it changed his life. The room was hanging on his every word as he took us through the difficult journey he is experiencing and the changes in his life. Thank you John and congratulations on a job well done.
