Walter Mikac's Biography

Walter Mikac is a powerful keynote speaker delivering messages on resilience, change and challenge.  He is a highly motivational and engaging, leaving audiences inspired and driven.  

Walter Mikac’s story touched the world. His wife and two little girls were amongst 35 people shot dead at Australia’s worst ever massacre, at Port Arthur, Tasmania, in 1996.  

Walter’s courage and dignity in the face of unimaginable horror had a profound and far reaching effect. It was a journey requiring unimaginable strength and courage, played out under the unrelenting glare of the media spot-light. His desire to create something positive from the devastation won him universal acclaim and led to extraordinary outcomes, including:  
National gun law reform
The thriving children’s charity The Alannah and Madeleine Foundation
The recent patronage of HRH Princess Mary and an adaptation of AMF’s programs throughout Denmark  

A successful author and experienced pharmacist, Walter has shared his insights at the National Press Club, on  A Current Affair, 60 minutes, SBS, ABC, and is a regular guest on 3AW. He is remarried with a child, and finding huge demand for his message from a diverse range of groups.  

His keynote speeches are powerful, and the uniqueness of his life story leads to sell-out audiences and media opportunities for many organisations. He guarantees to leave audiences with a renewed perspective on life that can translate into many diverse corporate and personal benefits.  

 In this volatile financial time, where the business landscape changes on a daily basis, one of Walter’s keynote presentations has particular relevance. Under the theme of “Resilience for Life ” he demonstrates through his own poignant story, the importance of being prepared for change.
