BizMaroondah Breakfast with Michael Milton

By Advice for Businesses No Comments

Maroondah’s Business Week features a range of events designed to assist business owners in developing and expanding their business. This morning I attended the Business Week Breakfast featuring paralympic skier Michael Milton, who lost a leg to cancer when we was nine years old.

Michael grew up in a family of skiers and was determined to continue skiing after he lost his leg. Michael’s determination and interest in skiing led to him competing in the 1988 Winter Paralympics and he later won gold in the 1992 Winter Paralympics. Michael utilised these experiences to speak about the importance of setting goals and remaining flexible to achieve these outcomes. Michael faced additional challenges in 2007 when he was diagnosed with oesophagal cancer but he maintained his determination to seek selection for the 2008 Beijing Paralympics.

Michael’s ability to focus on achieving his goals assisted his career as an athlete and apply equally to businesses. The Business Breakfast is one the many events that are held throughout Business Week.

I will be attending several events during Maroondah Business Week, which is held from Monday 10 to Friday 14 October.

In particular, I will be attending the ConnectEast Business Week Breakfast with Michael Milton, the fastest downhill skier in the world with a disability. Michael is currently competing in triathlons locally and internationally will discuss his experiences at the Breakfast.

I will also be attending the RACV Business Insurance Networking Event featuring Tom O’Toole. Tom converted a small rundown bakery into a business with a turnover in excess of $10 million through a focus on customer service.
