Inspirational Speaker + Trainer
After facing stage 4 Neuroblastoma when he was only 11 months old, Michael’s reason for supporting Camp Quality is deeply personal. At a young age he attended many of our Kids Camps, and he remembers them to be truly empowering and life-affirming experiences. He says “I truly believe that without Camp Quality I would not be alive today to share my journey with the world!”
Despite spending almost a quarter of his life in hospital, he has forged a highly successful career in the corporate world, represented Australia in his chosen sport and is featured regularly in the media. Today, he is one of Australia’s most sought after inspirational speakers and has shared his powerful story to people from all walks of life, all around the world. He has shared the stage with the Dalai Lama, Richard Branson and Tony Robbins. He has spoken to corporates from all backgrounds, Juvenile Detention Centres, September 11 victims, elite athletes across the globe and through Camp Quality has given hope and strength to many people facing cancer.
The award-winning documentary on his life, by ABC’s Australian Story, has been viewed by over 4 million people, and in 2016 he released his first tell-all autobiography, which is now a best seller across 6 different countries.
