2018 Heroes Luncheon – Guest Speaker Dylan Alcott OAM
1 November @ 11:45 am - 2:30 pm
Dylan Alcott OAM is one of Australia’s most successful Paralympians, and one of only a few elite athletes to win gold medals in two different sports across two Olympic games.
In his ‘spare’ time Dylan is a host on Triple J, regularly appears on TV, and goes wheelchair crowd surfing at music festivals.
An inspirational and entertaining speaker, Dylan brings his unique perspective on overcoming extreme adversity, the importance of taking risks to achieve your goals and the power of inclusion in breaking down the negative stigma associated with disability. Not to mention some awesome anecdotes from the wild world of sports!
The annual TGGB Heroes Luncheon is an opportunity to celebrate outstanding achievement; bringing local industry members together for a fantastic afternoon of inspiration and networking.
This year, the spotlight is on our new project Destination:Accessible. In partnership with the Australian Federation of Disability Organisations (AFDO), we’re working to make our region a more accessible destination and a more welcoming place for people with disabilities. This new project has been made possible through the generous funding of Regional Development Victoria.
It’s a subject close to Dylan’s heart, and one that every operator should be aware of.
Join us for this special lunch event at The Geelong Football Club, members enjoy a special discounted rate and we have corporate packages available to see this inspirational Aussie.
