Brooke Hanson - OAM
As an Austswim ambassador for over 13 years I’ve always been proud to bring greater awareness to AUSTSWIM.
Swimming, water safety and the importance of water awareness in, on and around all aquatic environments needs to be an integral part of living in Australia.
Although I’m an Olympic champion swimmer, I know the importance of learning to swim after almost drowning twice as a baby. It’s those two almost tragic incidents that provide me with so much inspiration to spread the message.
Being taught to swim by an AUSTSWIM Licensed Teacher and learning a skill for life has become part of my passion and purpose. I’m fortunate to spread the AUSTSWIM messages through my media roles and work at community, sport, school, charity and corporate levels.
Learning lifesaving water safety skills gives every person a chance to enjoy the water and feel the freedom and contentment that comes with participating in water-based activities. I’m a big believer in finding purpose, showing passion and in giving back.
My passion for learning to swim and water safety is more important than ever as a mother.
I’m a mum of three kids who love the water, they do weekly swimming lessons and our eldest does squad swimming. As a mother, I can see the joy that water brings and the confidence and happiness.
I’m inspired by the work that everyone at AUSTSWIM continues to do; from accreditation and support services to the state managers, presenters, assessors, sponsors, partners and, most importantly, our valued teachers.
To the entire AUSTSWIM family, I’m honoured to be your ambassador. Continue to shine, be the very best that you can be and remember that passion, purpose, belief and commitment are the keys to success. Keep smiling.
Brooke is a professional motivational keynote speaker, energy health presenter, master of ceremonies, Ted x speaker and facilitator.
