4 November 2016 Luncheon

Guest Speaker: Patrick Kidd, CEO Invictus Games Australia

Topic:    The Invictus Game – Striving to win in the face of adversity

Patrick has just retired from the Australian Army as a Brigadier.  He joined the Australian Defence Forces in 2005 after spending 20 years in the British Army where he was a tank soldier in the Royal Tank Regiment.  His career has required him to undertake a number of roles that have included the command of soldiers, operational planning, capability development and training.  He has considerable operational experience with the British and Australian Defence forces having served in Cyprus, the Balkans, the Middle East and Afghanistan. He has especially enjoyed his time in command of, and working with, soldiers of all nationalities and spent 12 months in Afghanistan where he was the deputy commander of an American led division.

Patrick is currently working with Deloitte in Melbourne to lead the effort to bring the Invictus Games to Australia in 2018. The Invictus Games are an international Paralympic-style multi-sport event, created by Britain’s Prince Harry, in which wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and their associated veterans take part in sports

Patrick holds an MBA and professional qualifications in Military Studies, he is also a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.  He lives in Melbourne, is married to Sue and struggles to manage two bad tempered teenage daughters and a 10 year old son.  His biggest fan is a family dog called Muffin.
