About Speaker Anton Guinea…
Anton started his career as an Apprentice Electrician in 1990, the trade that would lead him to getting blown up in a switchboard, an accident that changed his life and his world. The learnings from this incident have helped Anton inspire others to follow their own dreams and goals.
