Christian preacher and author Nick Vujicic will join motivational speaker Tony Robbins, singer songwriter Alicia Keys and poet Prince EA in a 10-hour edutainment event ‘Achieve the Unimaginable’ in Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena on September 3.

Vujicic was born with a rare disorder, tetra-amelia syndrome, which is characterised by the absence of all four limbs. He began his career as a motivational speaker at church groups, before gaining worldwide recognition for his support in helping others overcome physical and mental challenges.

He is the founder of Evangelistic ministry Life Without Limbs, founder and CEO of motivational speaking company Attitude is Altitude and author of five New York Times Bestseller books.

“You can join with us through your donations, in supporting our ministry and helping us to continue to bring the message of hope that is found in Jesus Christ to the countless others in this world who are still lost and hurting,” reads a statement on his website Life Without Limbs.

“God is in the business of restoring broken lives. Including yours. But in order to truly know God, you must say yes to Jesus,” the statement adds.

In 2017, he said his team witnessed 400,000 people “repent for their sins and choose to follow Jesus Christ” at an event in Ukraine.

The event’s headline act, Tony Robbins, arguably one of the world's most popular life coaches, was in May accused of sexually abusing former fans and staff.

The claims are based on a yearlong investigation by Buzzfeed News which includes leaked recordings, internal documents and dozens of interviews where Robbins allegedly “berated abuse victims” and made “inappropriate sexual advances” towards former female fans and staffers in the 1990s and early 2000s.

Robbins has denied the allegations in an open letter, where he accuses Buzzfeed of "targeting" him and intending to "disparage" him personally.

Event organisers Najahi Events said Robbins will help participants “unlock and unleash the forces inside them that can help in breaking through any limit and creating the quality of life they desire”.

To do so, they can purchase tickets that start at $593 (AED2,177) and go as high as $5,444 (AED19,997) per person for a VIP entry.

Tickets can be purchased on www.tonyrobbinsdxb.com.
