- Daryl Rock, BA, MA, KJSJ, CEO of Rockwood Development Ottawa
As a result of a car crash at the age of 19, Daryl Rock experienced a spinal cord injury that left him permanently unable to walk and with restricted hand and upper body movement. He did not let this stop him from pursuing his dreams. In this video, he shares with you some tips and advice, based on his own personal experience, that helped him achieve success, and that he hopes will help you achieve the success to which you aspire.
