Using first person narrative, interspersed with timely flashbacks, SURVIVING takes you beyond the savage terrorist attack and unforgiving Media headlines that followed, to connect with an intelligent, courageous, kind, spiritual and bubbly human being. Holness survived the challenges he faced using the positive, balanced thinking he was widely appreciated for during the many interviews given from his hospital bed during the chilling aftermath of the London Bombings; he is a living testament that happiness is indeed an inside job and available to us all!


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.
