Adil Ghani

“I take great satisfaction from knowing I’ve made a positive difference in someone’s life. I believe if you can do something, you should. So, take every opportunity and pour everything into it for as long as you can”.


‘Take every opportunity that comes your way’. This simple ethos drove Adil Ghani to become a motivational speaker at fourteen, engaging crowds of thousands with his humour and positive message. It has led him to become a trustee for Panathlon Challenge and helped him pour his energy into supporting disabled children in sport for over fifteen years.

Adil has limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, a rare combination of diseases which causes the deterioration of muscles over time. It is a condition which he believes has helped him to make the most of what he has and look beyond his limitations.

Adil’s insight and guidance have helped countless people across the country overcome challenges and reassess their capabilities. He is passionate about changing people’s perceptions of disability and brings every bit of his wisdom and energy to The Ability People.
