Winston Ben Clements
Inclusion Specialist, Keynote Speaker & Content Creator on a mission to inspire 1 Billion people
Winston Ben Clements is an Inclusion Speaker & Advocate with expertise in the areas of disability awareness, anti-racism and resilience. He was predicted to live a life of isolation and pain due to a rare bone disorder known as Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI). This condition caused his bones to be extremely fragile, suffering over 200 fractures in his lifetime.
Winston Clements is a two-time TED Speaker, Entrepreneur and YouTuber. His specialist topics are disability awareness, anti-racism and resilience. Winston has partnered with global brands including Google and Disney. His ultimate mission is to inspire 1 BILLION people to unleash their full human potential.
As a young person, Winston not only had to deal with the typical challenges of school and adolescence, but he also struggled with loneliness and frustration because his body would continuously let him down. Watching his siblings and the other kids from the sidelines was a constant reminder of how different he was, and he often found himself wondering “what is the point of it all?”
Despite this, Winston Clements considers himself to be one of the lucky ones. A significant number of people with OI do not make it beyond childhood. He was also born into a family who were destined to cope with a son who refused to allow his physical condition to limit his ambition. Winston credits his positive attitude to his Christian faith, as well as all the encouragement he has received from family, friends and well-wishers along his journey.
Winston Clements graduated from University with a degree in Computer Science and then spent over 10 years working as a Consultant for global tech corporations.
His current work as a speaker and advisor, continues to have transformational effects on audiences worldwide. He is passionate about supporting the world’s leading organisations to create cultures that are truly inclusive for all.
