"Walter Mikac has faced challenges in his life few could ever contemplate. His story, his life's lessons and his ability to deliver are an inspiration to us all."
John Bertrand AM, Winning Americas Cup Captain
"Walter came to Yarra Ranges to speak to community members who had been affected by the 2009 bushfires. His presentation was just what the doctor ordered! He had a very special way of telling his story to the audience and relating it back to their own experiences. He was able to display empathy and give encouragement to move forward rather than be stuck in the moment. I have organised many events and activities for bushfire affected people but this was the icing on the cake. Thank you for being approachable, inspiring and honest."
Mandy Black Consultant (Building Resilience) for Yarra Ranges Council June 2010
