Aidan Grimes

After 20 years of corporate work including speaking engagements, extreme events and personal development initiatives, Aidan has facilitated massive results for giants such as Computer Associates; Microsoft; Nine MSN, Vodafone and the NSW Police to name a few. These successes are a testament to his specialist capabilities in co-ordinating life changing events, performance/wellbeing coaching and team development/cohesion.

Aidan is a man of strong integrity who is determined to leave a positive legacy. His philanthropic work has raised in excess of 2.5 million dollars. In 2000, while raising over $1 million dollars for youth suicide prevention programs he was awarded ‘NSW Community Father of the Year’. Recently, Aidan was voted in as the Chairman of the Kokoda Ethics Committee which protects the “sacred” Legacy of Kokoda for future generations. He is also an honorary member of the 2/14th and 2/16th Battalions, an acknowledgement that demonstrates his deepest respect for the Australian Military whom provide us with the freedom we enjoy as a nation today. On track, the elders refer to him as Uda Baroma (Wild Pig) or Uda Lauma (The Spirit). The local elders have a huge amount of respect for Aidan as evidenced when one of the elders at Vesulogo Village named his son after Aidan.

In his keynote speeches, Aidan predominately utilises his encyclopaedic knowledge of Australian military history and only a bit of what he picked up while graduating with a Bachelor of Sports Science (coaching psychology), to promote a way of thinking that removes limitations and unearths a basic instinct inspired by the passion and spirit inherent in all Australians.
