Few would not know Walter Mikac's story. The loss of his wife and two young daughters at the Port Arthur shootings in Tasmania in 1996, touched the world.
â€śWalter's story is one of tremendous courage & hope. Like all Australians I have been deeply moved by the strength & grace shown by Walterâ€ťâ€¦ John Howard, Prime Minister and Patron of the AMF.
In the years that followed, Walter channelled his grief into a purpose. He wrote books, lobbied politicians for gun law reform, and helped set up a charity, The Alannah and Madeleine Foundation for child victims of crime.
He has been named a National Living Treasure and has spoken at the National Press Club.
Walter is now remarried with a daughter and is sharing his insights through keynote speaking, workshops and mentoring, with the focus on:
. THE CHALLENGE OF CHANGE
. INSPIRING EXTRAORDINARY OUTCOMES
. POWERFUL LIFE STRATEGIES
â€śInspiring. Walter had a great impact on our people. He reached our team in a personal and corporate sense.â€ť – Neil Grant G.M marketing and sales, FOSTERS BREWERY Group
â€śUplifting. Life-affirming. His message of hope left not just a fleeting â€ś feel good momentâ€ť but stirred something much deeper.â€ť - Peter Symonds, G.M Ability Employment
â€śPowerful. What a revelation on survival!â€ť – International paediatric and nurse conference, 2006
Walter is happy to customise his talks to whatever learning outcome is required.
â€śI want to share with others how empowering it is to overcome the unthinkable and reach your full potential. How to live life without regrets,â€ť Walter says.
