Stacey has not let a devastating accident that left her a quadriplegic and dependent on a wheelchair at 12 years old slow her down. Instead she picked up the pace and has used her life experience and personal philosophies to become Australia’s leading keynote speaker and facilitator on resilience and turning adversity into an asset, delivering keynote speeches, training, consulting and coaching to organisations such as Telstra, South East Water and CSIRO.
Her first book “How To Be Resilient”, which has been endorsed by Brian Tracy, Layne Beachley and Jack Delosa, was published in 2015 and has been featured by Financial Review, ABC radio and The Australian.
More recently Stacey has added athletics to her repertoire after 22 years of inactivity to further stretch her comfort zones, becoming the first women in her classification to compete in Australia, and is training to qualify for the Paralympic Games.
Stacey is an Ambassador for the Layne Beachley Foundation Aim For The Stars and donates 5% of her speaker fees and from the sale of each book to support the foundation.
In her spare time you are likely to find Stacey in the nearest patch of sunshine with a book recharging her solar powers.
Stacey is a contributor to our Boardroom Bootcamp course for the topic Resilience for Directors.
