Full Presenter Profile & Bio

Ellie Cole is one of Australia’s most accomplished Paralympians. Holding an OAM, and 15 Paralympic medals, Ellie has achieved success.

At the age of three, Ellie’s right leg was amputated due to a life-threatening sarcoma cancer. Rather than dwell on the loss, Ellie used the experience to spur her incredible ability to overcome adversity. 

In 2012, following success at the London Paralympics, Ellie suffered a double shoulder reconstruction and faced the possibility of never swimming again. Rather than give up, Ellie fought hard and continued to swim. She is now the World Record Holder in the 4 x 100m freestyle relay. Competing in Rio in 2016, Ellie walked away with 6 medals from the 6 swimming events she took part in. 

Ellie most recently won Cosmopolitan Magazine’s ‘Sportswoman of the Year’ and was listed in the Westpac 100 Women of Influence. 

As a speaker, Ellie combines her incredibly motivating story with her sense of humour to deliver a resonating story that audiences are inspired by. 

Speaker Topics

Diversity and Inclusion: Tolls, Trolls and Positive Impact
Throughout Ellies career as a Paralympic athlete, she has seen first hand how diversity and inclusion is a serious game changer. Not only does diversity provide society and individuals with an empowering competitive advantage, it also brings together people from different backgrounds to excel in creativity, problem solving and innovation.
Motivational Mindset
Shifting your mindset can be the difference between a happy, fulfilled existence and a daily struggle. After a year of unsuccessful chemotherapy, Ellies parents made the heartbreaking decision to amputate her leg. She jumped into a swimming pool eight weeks later for rehabilitation, and has been there ever since. Ellies keynote is about embracing life and adapting to change. A lot of people have emotional limitations that prevent them from living the lives they want to live, but Ellie says these are stepping stones that are easy to overcome once you know how.
