Sam Cawthorn is the authority in personal corporate resilience, best selling author, professional speaking coach, philanthropist and was awarded Young Australian of the year.
In October 2006 Sam’s life changed forever when he was involved in a major car accident, where he was pronounced DEAD. He was thankfully resuscitated, but left with an amputated right arm and a permanent disability in his right leg.
Sam was hospitalised for over 5 months and was told that he may not survive and best case was that if he was to survive he would never walk again. A year later he defied all odds taking his first steps into a new life, where his story would continue to INSPIRE and change the lives people all over the world.
It was Sam’s difficult journey that enabled him to develop a mental resilience and strength that gave him the tools to miraculously recover from an accident that could have taken his life. Sam’s story is simple, yet his message demonstrates the awesome power and strength found within the human spirit when faced with the choice to continue living as a victim of a tragic accident, or to make a choice to seize the opportunity of ‘life’.
Forever the opportunist Sam chose LIFE, and is now a hugely successful professional keynote speaker, reaching tens of thousands of people around the world each year. Sam is at the forefront of global trends and has the unique ability to transform impossibilities into possible realities.
