Annabelle Williams OAM

An international motivational speaker, Paralympic Gold Medallist, lawyer, board director, TV reporter and sports commentator, Annabelle is a leading voice on diversity and inclusion and is creating a movement to change peoples perceptions about their own limitations.  Annabelle captained the Australian Paralympic Swim Team and managed to balance her sporting career with a highly successful and demanding corporate career as an attorney. Annabelle competed in two Paralympic Games, broke five world records and won numerous medals for Australia, including gold at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. Annabelle had been an M&A attorney at a top-tier law firm, Allens, and in-house counsel for the Australian Olympic Committee. She is a strong advocate for the rights of athletes and, at the age of 24, was awarded with the prestigious Medal of the Order of Australia for her service to sport. Annabelle holds a number of international board and advisory positions and recently graduated from the Stanford University Graduate School of Business, where she delivered the Valedictory Address. In a fun fact, Annabelle was, for a fleeting moment, Charlize Theron’s stunt double in Mad Max 4: Fury Road. Learn more at www.annabellew.com or by following @anniejwilliams on Instagram.
