Physical trauma survivor, safety advocate, motivator and family man

Perserverance, persistence and a belief in oneself to achieve.

A little over 30 years ago, Garry Nichols suffered a traumatic workplace accident that resulted in the loss of his right leg at the hip.

He endured a two-hour ordeal alone, waiting for help to arrive by drawing on past training to survive.

His was a preventable accident.

Now Garry travels the state telling his story in the hope that he can save you from putting yourself and your loved ones through the same Trauma he inflicted on himself and his family.

Garry's presentation was honest, raw and confronting. It was also warm, encouraging and supportive. To be honest, every emotion was felt at some time or other during his presentation. I would describe the room as intense. He held the attention of everyone the whole time. It was a testament to him that the line to shake his hand, give him a hug, and thank him after the presentation was extensive. Qantas

Garry presented and personalised an emotive presentation which went far beyond the video story. He personalised his actions on that tragic day making comparisons to everyday activities these worker's encounter. He made each worker (including me) question how attentive they were to potentially fatal tasks such as driving. Garry described the ripple effects his tragic incident had on others to both he knew and did not know. He was brutally honest in the consequences of an event so tragically life-altering and eloquently explained its life-long consequences on both he and his loved ones.

The reaction from attendees as you told your story really brought home the fact that just "A small lapse in concentration and you could end up seriously injured, or worse". A split second is all it takes. Garry is a master storyteller and made everyone feel as if they were there with him as he relives his experience.

Wow I have never seen a more passionate, engaging emotional storyteller present like Garry. I watched Garry speak for three days in a row and was in awe of him. He adjusted his presentation for the audience, kept them engaged and there was not a dry eye in the session. I am personally so grateful to have had Garry speak to us. (I have even heard his voice while driving now-'PAY ATTENTION TO THE TASK AT HAND!')
