Full Presenter Profile & Bio
As a passionate environmentalist, Warren MacDonald is strong willed and determined to make a change. Having once been arrested after protesting and chaining himself underneath a bulldozer, Darren lets nothing stand in his way.
On a fateful day in 1997, Darren went exploring, however he became trapped under a fallen boulder. His only hope for survival was a Dutch traveller he had met earlier who went to get help. It wasn’t until two days later that help finally arrived. Unfortunately, both of Warren’s legs need to be amputated, however this hasn’t slowed him down.
After ten months in rehabilitation, Warren climbed Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain. He is the first double above-knee amputee to reach the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro as well as the first over the knee amputee to ascend Canada’s ‘Weeping Wall’, a frozen waterfall.
The presentation you delivered was heartfelt and more than inspirational. You captured exactly what we were looking to hear and you weaved your story and teachings brilliantly throughout. We have been back to work a few weeks now and people are still talking about some of your key take-away messages. They were so simple and resounding..how could they not!
It was a pleasure having Warren at our meeting. He is one of the most effective speakers that I have listened to. He has a unique ability to deliver his powerful message in an authentic and down to earth style. The attendees felt privileged that Warren made the effort above and beyond his speaking commitment to be a part of the event.
Warren Macdonald is a must for any organization with Leaders looking for development and obstacles that need to be turned into opportunities.
Warren delivered an important message in an engaging way that really connected with our audience. He made an outstanding contribution in being the catalyst for our people to reflect on and take control of their own circumstances, and had a material impact on the success of our conference.
