Dylan Alcott to speak at lunch
Words by Kylie Knight

Australian of Year 2022 Dylan Alcott AO is coming to the Moreton Bay Region to speak at a business networking lunch next month.

The event will be presented by Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism (MBRIT) and supported by strategic partner Moreton Bay Regional Council, and sponsored by EPIC Assist, Bishopp Outdoor Advertising, Innovate Moreton Bay, RDA Moreton Bay, and Village Motors.

It will be held on June 16 at Eatons Hill Hotel.

Dylan is one of Australia’s most successful and well recognised Paralympians who, in 2021, became the only male in any form of tennis to win the 'Golden Slam' - the Australian, French, Wimbledon and US Open Championships, together with his gold medal from the Tokyo Paralympic Games.

He is an inspirational role model who works tirelessly to change the way people with disabilities are perceived in the wider community.

In 2017, Dylan created the Dylan Alcott Foundation, a foundation to help young people who are struggling to come to terms with their disabilities.

The foundation aims to improve quality of life through mentoring, scholarships and grants which assist individuals to be involved in education and sport.

Dylan is also an entrepreneur and the co- founder of Get Skilled Access, a training provider educating corporates and governments on how to better understand and treat customers with disabilities.

He broke the world record playing wheelchair tennis for 24 consecutive hours, raising $100,000 for two charities in 2016.
