Doug Greene spoke about his experiences of almost going blind, dropping into a dark, multi-year depression – and then finding his way back out.
The reason I like helping others tell their story is the experience I had of almost going blind, into a prolonged depression and – finally – out the other side. My award-winning book From Grief to Grace is one way I share that story. Speaking is another.
I do two types of speeches – one about my story, and another about creating your story.
