Event Review: John Quinn’s Story

CNN: Courage, No compromise, No doubt.

Thank you to John Quinn, an high profile Exercise Physiologist at South Yarra Spine and Sports medicine, for his truly heroic presentation of his personal story on Friday night, where he gave his testimony for the first time since recovering from a major illness that almost took his life.

It was a fantastic evening at The Olsen Hotel with a full house, kicking off with an introduction from Kevin Sheedy. There was great humour on Kevin’s part, interspersed with some personal anecdotes that showcase clearly how important the friendship between these two has been throughout John’s life, both personally and professionally. We were most appreciative of Kevin Sheedy taking the time out of his schedule to introduce John on the night.

John Quinn’s personal story is extraordinary, and he was incredibly raw and passionate in his delivery of the experiences that he has had over is life. It was a privilege to hear his story for the first time, there was some strong take-home messages in there for everyone. John is a true inspiration for us and completely lives out his personal acronym CNN – Courage, No compromise, No doubt. John’s mental toughness combined with his daily commitment and discipline to improve his health & wellbeing saved his life.

We at South Yarra Spine and Sports Medicine are incredibly lucky to have John Quinn working as an Exercise Physiologist with us. Thank you to everyone who attended, we have no doubt that everyone found it as inspiring and fulfilling as we did.
