In his presentation Bob shares his "glass half full" approach to life and work. He tells us about how he has not allowed his deaf blindness to hold him back. Bob had a successful career in the oil industry, managing a European wide team and travelling the world for his work. He has run marathons, cycled 1000's of miles on a tandem. He also loves hill walking, swimming, photography and playing the guitar - interesting hobbies for someone who does not see or hear too well.
