Event description

Description

Living without fingerprints is an inspirational journey dedicated to support those who feel that they cannot change their circumstances or lack the courage to try but ultimately overcome their fears and leave their own indelible mark on society.

John Weeks spent the first 30 years of his working life within the wine industry, developing from a regional winemaker to ultimately establishing his own successful global winemaking company and working in over twenty countries.

In May of 2014, within an instant, a petrol explosion changed his life forever and he received burns to 75% of his body. He was the world’s first burn recipient of the NovoSorb™, a biodegradable temporising matrix used for the regeneration of the skin in burns, reconstruction surgery and chronic wounds developed in Adelaide.

Following 12 months in hospital and rehabilitation John has embarked on a new direction of installing hope and courage to survivors of trauma. His focus is on the tutelage and support of school children in both upper primary and secondary education especially as they ready themselves for the “real world”. He is a captivating and inspirational speaker.

By demonstrating the ability to admire the achievements and always continuing to drive forward instead of focusing on the negative, John encapsulates the difference of being alive and feeling alive or in his words “I have gone from flat lining to living life flat out”.
