Janine Shepherd’s story reads like the plot of a Hollywood movie. An Australian national champion skier in training for the upcoming Olympics, she was hit by a truck on a bike ride, suffering multiple life-threatening injuries. Doctors warned her parents that, even if she lived, Janine would never walk again. Struggling to rehabilitate with permanent disabilities, Janine rekindled her defiant spirit in a dramatically improbable way. Seeing a small plane fly overhead one day, she declared, “That’s it! If I can’t walk, I’ll fly!”

Janine went on to succeed not only as a commercial pilot and aerobatics flight instructor but also to attain her University degree, raise three children, and author six best-selling books. Her life is so remarkable that a feature length film has been made on it. Today, Janine Shepherd is an internationally renowned speaker and has been recognised with her country’s highest honor, The Order of Australia. You won’t want to miss out on this Talk -- join us to hear all about her awe-inspiring journey of overcoming the impossible.
