Opening Breakfast

Safety in Action 2012 will open with the riveting story of Derrick McManus, member of the SA Special Task and Rescue (STAR) Group, who was shot 14 times in less than 5 secondst when he and his team of 5 went to arrest a man. The story is the basis for one of Australia’s most powerful, inspirational and really quite humorous presentations.

He not only survived but also returned first to his family and then, despite all medical predictions, to his work with the elite Special Tasks and Rescue (STAR) Group.

Be inspired by Derrick’s zest for life and competition; learn how to overcome your biggest challenges and how to triumph where others believe it’s impossible – personally and professionally.
