Triumph against the Unimaginable - A Story of Unity, Courage and Resilience
Leadership WA is delighted to be welcoming Dr Craig Challen SC OAM.
A defining example of courage over adversity, Craig was named Australian of the Year 2019 in recognition of the leading role he played in rescuing 12 young soccer players and their coach from a flooded cave in Chiang Rai, Thailand in 2018. He was also awarded a Star of Courage and an Order of Australia Medal for his bravery and problem-solving skills.
Craig will draw on his experience of the cave rescue and share insights into the importance of courage and resilience in the face of immense challenge.
