The 2017 Concannon Oration is on next week and will feature one of the most inspirational speakers and motivators in the country.

Clare Sultmann, mother of two and author of Standing On My Own Two Feet, will talk about her journey from being jammed beneath a 10-tonne garbage truck fighting for her life to walking again on her own two feet.

Mrs Sultmann’s presentation will emphasise how important resilience and setting goals are in overcoming obstacles, no matter how difficult they may seem.

The event, hosted by the Residential Colleges and Concannon College Council, is open to USQ staff, students and the community.

It will be held at the Allison Dickson Lecture Theatre, USQ Toowoomba, on August 2, from 7-9pm. The presentation will also be streamed online.
