Phil Britten is an International Speaker, Author and Entrepreneur with a love of family and adventure.
As a survivor of the Bali bombings in 2002, Phil knows what it takes to overcome adversity: he not only lost seven of his closest friends, but received burns to 60% of his body.
Phil is a renowned Adventurer who lives and breathes adventure and charity work. In his time as an Adventurer, Phil has trekked the Kokoda trail, climbed Gran Paradiso (the highest peak in the Italian Alps) and summited Mount Kilimanjaro (one of the so-called Seven Summits). He’s also completed several survival treks in the remote East Kimberleys. To date, Phil has raised over $100,000 for research into childhood brain cancer.
In his business life, Phil focuses on creating successful enterprises, and helping others to do the same. In 2013, Phil won a prestigious ‘40under40’ business award, and was named ‘Most Inspiring Man of the Year’ by Momentum Forum. More recently, Phil was awarded ‘Australian Speaker of the Year 2015/16’ by the Professional Speakers Academy.
Phil is a passionate and very active Ambassador of The Adventurers, with three young children of his own.
Discovered at age 17 by Dennis Lillee, Mitchell Johnson started his professional cricket career in 2001, playing for his home state of Queensland. Despite a career dogged by injury, Mitchell’s unique “fast action” made him feared by batsmen all over the world. After making his Test debut in 2007, Mitchell went on to play 73 Test matches for Australia.
Mitchell announced his retirement from international cricket in 2015, and is now a high-profile member of the Perth Scorchers Twenty20 cricket team. Mitchell is only the fifth Australian to take over 300 Test wickets. Mitchell and wife Jessica Bratich (karate black belt and entrepreneur) have two children, and live in Perth, Western Australia.
Jessica has achieved a black belt in karate, and competed successfully at both a national and international level. Amongst her many titles and accomplishments is a bronze medal from the 2006 World Championships in Finland.
Now a mother of two, Jessica has turned her hand to fashion design. Over the past few years, she has created her own range of handbags and accessories, which have featured on the international stage. In 2014, she was a finalist in the WA Fashion Awards.
