Paul Speight - USA President Spokes'n Motion USA - Experience the difference !
Born in Auckland, New Zealand in 1954, Paul Speight has been associated with many sports and outdoor activities during his lifetime. His life was dedicated to sailing, skiing, and outdoor adventures. At the age of 21, the course of his passions changed due to a serious car accident. Becoming a paraplegic gave his life new meaning and direction. He realized that he could keep on enjoying the outdoor activities that he loved, he just needed to learn new ways to enjoy them. Then, he wanted to share his knowledge with others who craved his same interests that they could do the same. He created Spokes'n Motion in 1988 in order to promote sport and recreational activities for the disabled all over the world.

Sandrine Duffaud - European President Spokes'n Motion EUROPE
As a volunteer for the French association for disabled people named "The Schuss Ski Club", Sandrine Duffaud was regularly importing sports equipment from "Spokes'n Motion USA" in order to bring fun and enjoyment through sport and recreational activities.
In 2001, Paul was looking to expand his activities in Europe. Since Sandrine was so knowledgeable with this product line, he proposed that she own a European subsidiary of Spokes'n Motion. She happily accepted the offer and the division started up in 2003. Thus began Spokes'n Motion Europe (France, Toulouse). This business relationship started something much more special and later on they decided to get married.
