Stacey has not let a devastating accident that left her a quadriplegic and dependent on a wheelchair at 12 years old slow her down.
Instead she has used her life experience and personal philosophies to become Australia’s leading keynote speaker and facilitator on resilience and finding the opportunity in change and adversity, delivering keynote speeches, training, consulting and coaching to organisations such as Telstra, Holden and CSIRO.
Her first book “How To Be Resilient”, which has been endorsed by Brian Tracy, Layne Beachley and Jack Delosa, was published in 2015. Stacey has been featured by Financial Review, ABC radio and The Australian for her insights on resilience in the workplace.
With a “say yes and figure out how later” approach to life, Stacey has achieved some remarkable feats including starring in a feature film with no acting experience, volunteering in Solomon Islands, competing at a national level in para-athletics after 22 years on the sidelines and running for parliament.
Stacey is an Ambassador and Mentor for the Layne Beachley Foundation and in her spare time you are likely to find Stacey in the nearest patch of sunshine with a book recharging her solar powers.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
