Wayne Connell is a speaker who would love to talk with your organization, corporation, hospital, clinic or support group. Wayne is the Founder and President of the Invisible Disabilities Association which encourages, educates and connects people touched by illness, pain and injury.
Wayne’s inspiration came from his wife, Sherri, who became disabled in 1991 due to Progressive Multiple Sclerosis and Late-Chronic Lyme Disease. Sherri was extremely active all her life, working at the age of 10, singing and dancing in musicals, putting herself through college and obtaining three degrees. Now, going to a doctor’s appointment, taking a shower or getting a meal is a serious challenge for her.
Wayne thoroughly enjoys sharing tools and tips for becoming a source of encouragement and support to various groups. He holds a BA Degree in Liberal Arts and is Certified through Dale Carnegie’s school for public speaking. Wayne also has an extensive background in tv and radio broadcasting and sound engineering. Wayne has spoken for IDA seminars and banquets, as well as organizations such as the Lupus, Arthritis and Scleroderma Foundations, corporations and various groups.
Wayne is passionate about the subject, yet lighthearted and enjoyable. In his presentations, he really “hits the nail on the head” for those living with chronic illness and pain. Wayne is available to speak to your group about illness, pain, injury, caregiving, support and/or his presentation on invisible disabilities based on his book, But You LOOK Good!
