Lorin Nicholson's Biography

Many people consider living a normal life a huge achievement for someone who is blind. If this is the case, then Lorin is definitely not normal. At age four, doctors diagnosed Lorin with a genetic eye disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa RP and with only 10% sight, was declared legally blind.

Despite the enormous challenges of blindness growing up and the pessimistic views and low expectations of so many, it soon became obvious that Lorin possessed an incredible inner strength, resilience and determination that would see him destined for great things.

Today Lorin not only understands the keys and principles for success, he personifies them and now shares this knowledge and experience to thousands of audiences around the country and the globe.

Unlike the usual, naturally gifted celebrity athlete, business person and motivational speaker who chooses to become successful, Lorin was forced to dig deep, fight hard and muster every ounce of his will-power just to be normal. Amazingly, he continues to surge on to achieve far above and beyond most abled people.  His clear method for success is delivered in a way that is real, authentic, personal, completely engaging and absolutely inspirational.

Lorin has become one of Australia’s most successful independent recording and performing artists, with five albums to his credit, a golden guitar nomination, 3 Frater awards for excellence in the touring performance program, as well as winning 2015 music producer of the year at the Australian Celtic Music Awards. Lorin’s virtuoso skills as a guitarist has also earned him a lead-line endorsement with the prestigious Martin & Co Guitars, FBT audio, fishman amplifiers and Rode Microphones, as well as hundreds of newspaper articles, radio and television interviews and appearances including 60 Minutes and Channel Nine’s nationally televised Carols by Candlelight.

Lorin’s incredible guitar playing during his keynote speeches is always a huge hit for every member of his audience and adds another inspirational dimension at every event. Lorin customises his presentations to meet the needs and objectives of every audience across all industries, from hospitality to mining, health to finance, sales to technology and service to education. 

Lorin is without fail the most talked about keynote speaker and highlight at every conference he attends. His powerful messages, captivating delivery style and incredible guitar playing, coupled with his unrelenting determination through adversity and infectious enthusiasm for life always leaves an indelible imprint on the lives of everyone he meets.
