Pronounced dead for over three minutes following a horrific car crash, Sam Cawthorn survived despite all the odds stacked against him. The accident resulted in his right arm being amputated, and caused permanent damage to his right leg. He was told he would never walk again; a setback that would surely defeat many.

Sam has authored many books including an International New York Times Best Seller. It was the notion that ‘story is the future’ that led Sam to write his seventh and latest book Storyshowing . Published by Wiley only released in October 2017, Storyshowing delves deep into the influence of stories; and that the winners of the future will be those that show the most powerful one that evokes the most amount of emotion in the shortest amount of time.

A regular media commentator, researcher and thought leader, Sam Cawthorn is one of the biggest personalities in professional speaking in Australia. His presentations and keynotes need to be experienced.
