In Conversation with Kurt Fearnley

Sat 28 Mar 2020 2:00pm

Raised in the small country town of Carcoar, Kurt Fearnley has always been determined. Being born without the lower portion of his spine has never held him back, from backyard games of football to crewing a winning Sydney to Hobart yacht, crawling the Kokoda Track and winning dozens of marathons around the world.

Turning his attention to wheelchair sports in his teens, Kurt quickly became a world-beater. Fearnley is a three-time Paralympic gold medallist and two-time Commonwealth Games gold medallist. A passionate disability advocate, Fearnley devotes himself to several national and Hunter-based charitable initiatives.

Kurt is recognised as one of Australia’s leading keynote speakers and presenters. He has presented to small and large groups around Australia and internationally, sharing tales of his sporting and life accomplishments with strong themes of building resilience, the importance of a strong team and leading through example.
