Cool People: Mark Esho


In this latest episode of Cool People I talk to Mark Esho, a disabled entrepreneur and motivational speaker. Mark takes us through his incredible journey from childhood to the inspirational man he is today.

Mark was born in Leicester to Nigerian parents and then adopted by the Archers, a family in a local mining village. As a child he had a bout of Polio which cost him his ability to walk unaided, this prompted Mark’s parents to take him back from his foster parents and return him to Nigeria where he regularly saw a local witch doctor to try and cure him of his Polio.

Years later, now with a family of his own, Mark tells us his incredible tale of perseverance and endurance, and shares his brilliant work in the fight for disability equality.

For more information on Mark’s story please check out his book, I Can I Will, which can be found here at
