San Diego, California, United States
At 19, Jeremy Poincenot was your typical San Diego State University Sophomore. Friends, sports, fraternity and most importantly, perfect 20/20 vision. Then it happened, no warning, no time to prepare. Life began to blur. Over the next few months, I lost central vision in my right eye, followed closely by my left.
The diagnosis: a rare genetic disorder called Lebers Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON), a disease that affects a mere 100 people in the U.S. each year with no treatment or cure in sight. At first, I thought losing my sight meant forfeiting my life. But I soon learned that with every challenge comes an opportunity for growth.
With hard work, dedication, and my dad as my guide, a year after losing my sight we were able to compete in and win the 2010 World Blind Golf Championship in England. We’ve since won 2 more World & 8 National Blind Golf Championships.
I am not your ordinary motivational speaker. With a powerful personal narrative, a little wit and a strong inspirational message, I provide perspective to audiences and open their eyes to see the power of interdependence.
Although I cannot see my audiences, I can help them see how to effect change and positivity in their own lives. My mission is to help people suspend judgment and focus on the good. My objective is not to dictate how to succeed in life; I speak from experience to convince individuals that independence is good, while interdependence is great.
How will you find the power of interdependence in your life?

Key Takeaways from “Together We Are Limitless”
As an Inspirational Speaker, I use my struggles and successes on the golf course to inspire players and non-players alike. I lead by example, showing individuals that with a positive mindset, a ton of patience and someone to help line you up every now and then, even obstacles that seem insurmountable can be opportunities for success.

“Jeremy was an absolute treat for my strategic commercial customers. I truly believe they were inspired, motivated and entertained the entire time. Jeremy CONNECTED PERFECTLY with the audience. To quote my manager; “You know the keynote is great when a large amount of the award winners quote him on stage while accepting their award!” He was a HUGE reason the event was such a success. I was just reliving it with my manager and she said he was BY FAR THE BEST SPEAKER WE’VE HAD. I’m going to have to start searching for next year’s speaker now. The pressure is on. He’s going to be HARD TO BEAT!”

“Beyond your great presentation, you’ve made quite an IMPRESSION with us because of your WARMTH and PERSONALITY off the stage. We’ve worked with a lot of presenters before and we rarely have anyone spend time with us after.”
