David O’Mahoney – talk for Year 12 students
On Thursday 5th July David O’Mahoney delivered an exceptional talk to our year 12 about his life. David left a career job to join the Armed forces in 2009. His life went from escorting Her Majesty the Queen on Ceremonial State occasions, to suddenly having to fight for his life. He woke up in an intensive care ward, missing a large portion of his skull due to having suffered a brain injury but only months later played a part in the opening and closing of the 2012 Paralympic games in London.
His aim now is to help others create the same shifts in their own lives, leaving them more resilient both professionally and personally but more importantly living happier and more fulfilling lives.
Powerful, and thought provoking; David reached different students on many different levels with his motivational and very personal account of his life to date. His inspirational talk weaved in number of life skills delivered with humility, humour and courage.
