ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Garri Holness, Garri Holness, was a successful Accounts Executive in London for over 20 years. He had a near-death experience as a result of the 7/7 London Bombings in 2005 and his Mother died unexpectedly. After a foot amputation and re-learning to walk on a prosthetic limb, he was headlined by the Media over a conviction from his youth, which scuppered his rise as a beacon of hope in the aftermath of The London Bombings. After three consecutive and devastating blows, Garri has survived and been inspired to become a Motivational Speaker and Mentor. Known as the man who walks with a foot in 2 worlds, he guides people, especially minorities, to think positively despite adversity, and his life is a testament to the fact that he literally knows how to walk the talk.
