SPEAKER, AWARD WINNING MUSICIAN
Justin Osmond has a unique ability to capture and captivate his audience with stories calling on reserves of courage, determination and self-belief in order to succeed and sometimes to simply survive. He offers his audience an extraordinary experience by sharing life lessons and translating his life experiences into an entertaining and motivational keynote that is relevant to his audiences from academic and government to corporations world-wide.
Justin has led an extraordinary life and found himself learning vital lessons from his unique circumstances. Growing up with a 90% hearing loss is hard for anyone, but being the son of Merrill Osmond, the lead singer of the world-renowned Osmond Family, made deafness an even bigger challenge for him.
This is what makes Justin extraordinary. Overcoming many communication challenges, he became an award winning musician, dedicated his life to working with the deaf and hard-of-hearing and inspires everyone who hears his amazing story.
Having shared the spotlight with the likes of Kevin Costner, Oprah, Billy Crystal, Garth Brooks, Susan Boyle and many other distinguished and respectable individuals, Justin’s unique style inspires and motivates his audiences. Justin has spent over 15 years traveling the world helping the deaf and hard-of-hearing in underdeveloped countries as well as throughout the United States. Justin continues to travel the world inspiring those living with a hearing loss by sharing with them his experiences and stories of hope and perseverance. Justin touches the hearts of not only those living with a hearing loss, but everyone he comes in contact with and encourages any person who has a dream to live it.
In his recently published book “Hearing with my Heart”, he shares his story with the world with a goal to help everyone understand their own individual struggles and how to overcome them. He lives every day by his personal motto: “I may have a hearing loss, but that hearing loss does not have me.”
