Registration is closed

Achieving goals requires establishing a vision and doing everything in our power to bring it into fruition. Blind since the age of eight, Lex Gillette was determined to not let that factor keep him from achieving his goals. In this 45-minute program, we will travel with Lex through many scenes of his life, feeling every emotion along the way. You will be taken on a journey of discovery that will reveal the lessons and ideas that have propelled him to athletic dominance in the long jump.

Close your eyes, open your mind, and imagine your highest potential. Get ready to navigate down life’s runway and ascend toward a vision of success.

During this session, Lex will explain what the personal and professional development process looks like from a gold medal athlete who has been blind since childhood and how to:

  • Find your own unique vision for success
  • See a clearer vision and use this vision to guide your actions daily
  • Teach people to “see”


Lex Gillette is a motivational speaker and globally recognized Paralympic track and field athlete for Team USA. Competing primarily in the long jump, Lex has amassed four Paralympic medals, four world champion titles, and is the current world record holder in the event. He is the only totally blind athlete on the planet to eclipse the 22-foot barrier in the long jump. He is currently training for the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games where he aims to bring back gold for the United States of America.
