Patrick KnightBlessed to survive – Inspirational stories

Patrick Knight  Saturday & Sunday

We are privileged to present Patrick Knight as our keynote speaker for the weekend. Patrick is jetting in from Miami to be with us and his inspirational tale of how he overcame adversity is not to be missed.

Patrick’s amazing story of survival and recovery after he was shot by his brother-in-law is truly remarkable. It was Thanksgiving 2009 when his former family member turned up to dinner armed and shot four members of his family including his wife and her twin sister. Patrick was shot in the stomach and was in a coma for three months. When he woke, he had to relearn how to do everything from talking to writing. 

Now, three years on, Patrick shares his story of recovery and how he found peace in his new reality. Speaking on both days of the event, Patrick will be facilitating workshops as well as leading break out sessions.
