Ex-commando, actor, aspiring Paralympian and keynote speaker Damien Thomlinson will be Leadership Wimmera’s special guest at a breakfast meeting this month.
Thomlinson is an Afghanistan war veteran and former member of the elite Second Commando Regiment.
Like many of his comrades in the armed forces, Thomlinson can accurately be described as a war hero, but it is his incredible achievements since leaving the forces that have inspired so many around the world.
Since returning to Australia, he has become an acclaimed actor, an aspiring Paralympian, an author and a riveting keynote speaker.
Thomlinson’s powerfully moving personal story, never-say-die attitude and incredible determination never fail to inspire, motivate and move audiences of all ages.
Thomlinson uses his experiences, passion for life and journey to inspire and motivate.
His best-selling autobiography, Without Warning, was released in 2013 and continues to sell across Australia, the United States and UK.
He also commits time to causes important to him as an ambassador for DefenceCare, Soldier On, Commando Welfare Trust and other initiatives that aim to raise awareness and funds for injured soldiers and their families.
A successful speaker, Thomlinson’s triumph against adversity, positive attitude and ambition for the future continues to resonate with people from all walks of life.
Above all, his incredible journey stands as proof that no challenge is too great and that the Anzac spirit is alive and well.
Leadership Wimmera appreciates the support of Federation University in hosting this event.
Tickets for the June 26 event are available for $10 an adult and $5 for a student. Bookings can be made by calling Sue on 5381 6507 or emailing
