About this Event
A top Australian soldier shares how his military experiences can be used in our everyday lives to optimise opportunities, create resilience and build leadership qualities.
‘His ability to take literal life and death situations and normalise them is exceptional. Most of us will never know what it is like to put your life on the line. The stories of survival he tells are extreme and you can’t help but be inspired by incredible acts of bravery. For Bram to share these stories is a gift in itself. But he doesn’t make you feel inadequate or guilty. He takes the stories and his training and articulates them into insightful lessons. These lessons then provide a great road map for success.’ Paul Roos, former Australian rules footballer and senior coach in the AFL.
Join us to hear about Bram’s personal stories from the day he joined the army (and the shock of his first army haircut), to the day he won his Distinguished Service Medal in a hellfire battle in Afghanistan.
Hear him talk about:
RESILIANCE – Focus, laziness, the advantage of fear, mateship, being adaptable, boredom as an opportunity, and embracing ‘the suck’.
OPTIMISATION – Organisation, training, habits, listening and observation, the importance of sleep, situational awareness and investing in people.
LEADERSHIP – The definition of a leader, the eleven principles, types of leaders, leading leaders and knowing your people.
VALUES – Honesty, professionalism, tolerance and humility.
