Event description

Description

Jacqui Cooper has represented Australia in the sport of Aerial Skiing for 20 years.

In a very long and decorated career she has competed in 139 World Cup Events, nine World Championships and been selected to five Winter Olympic Teams. When Jacqui competed in Vancouver in February 2010 she became the first Australian woman in history (summer or winter Olympics) to represent Australia at five Games.


Her sport is unforgiving; she has had knee, elbow, shoulder and hip reconstructions. In 2001 she broke her back in an attempt to win a record 3rd World Title; she went on and won it. In 2002 at the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics she injured her knee and broke her leg just two days before the Olympic competition ending years of dreaming, willing and wanting.

Twenty years planning, learning, failing, overcoming adversity, developing, reinventing, striving and succeeding. She’s now described as the greatest Aerial Skier of all time. Jacqui uses ten points in her presentation to link business to sport, and sport to business. She will tell you that all the same ingredients needed to be successful in business, were needed to dominate a decade in her sport.

We invite you to hear Jacqui's story.

Proceeds to Geelong's Christ Church Meals Program.
