Jacqui Cooper Aerial Skiier

PRA Ladies Charity Luncheon with Jacqui Cooper

What momentum this event is gaining! And, for such a great cause.

The 2018 Patrick Rowan & Associates Ladies Cocktail Luncheon was a sell out.  This year we welcomed over 70 ladies to the Royal Geelong Yacht Club. Next year… we will be seeking a larger venue!

The Business of Sport. Jacqui Cooper, Motivational Speaker.

Aerial Skier, Jacqui Cooper gave a down-to-earth and inspiring presentation. We laughed, we cried, we even gave her a standing ovation.

Representing Australia in the sport of Aerial Skiing for over 20 years, when Jacqui competed in Vancouver in 2010 she became the 1st Australian Woman in history (Summer or Winter Olympics) to represent Australia at 5 games.

Jacqui’s mix of enthusiasm, passion, commitment and never give up attitude is both intriguing and infectious.

Her sport is unforgiving; hers is a story of self belief, passion, triumph, tragedy and the ability to overcome adversity.

Having 22 surgeries throughout her time competing, most of us would have given up. But not Jacqui. Even spending six weeks upright in a chair after an injury, then do have to do it all again for another six weeks, Jacqui remained positive.

She is now described as the greatest Aerial Skier of all time. For us, she is also a remarkable person.

Congratulations and Thank you.
