Welcome to episode 42 of What I Know Now, the personal development and leadership podcast.
This week’s guest is Stephen Cluskey. Stephen is the co-founder and CEO of Mobility Mojo, an award-winning entrepreneur, disability advocate and public speaker. A spinal cord injury at the age of 18 left Stephen paralysed from the neck down, but he has since gone on to achieve, in a short time, more than most would in a lifetime.
He graduated with an honours business degree, started two award-winning businesses and a social enterprise, advocated on behalf of disabled people, spoken in front of large crowds, been appointed to a government body by the Minister for Transport, changed regulations at the top level and helped secure more than €3 million to put more wheelchair taxis on Irish roads. He also designed and helped develop an IFTA nominated TV show to try to change people’s perceptions around access issues.
He has acted as a brand ambassador for Nissan and won numerous awards as an individual, as well as for the businesses.
He offers a very unique, positive perspective on life, challenging individuals to realise that almost anything is possible with the right will and determination.
