Managing fear is one of the greatest skills we can ever learn, says Warren Macdonald, the keynote speaker at the 2022 Athabasca University Graduate Student Research Conference.

Since losing his legs in a rock-climbing accident in Australia, Macdonald has used his story of perseverance to inspire others as a motivational speaker.

“People started wanting to hear my story, and over time I realized how impactful it is for us to share our stories. They remind us that we are not alone, that we are connected to something outside of ourselves,” he said.

Macdonald will speak at the Graduate Student Research Conference, taking place virtually on Oct 14 to 15, 2022. More details on submitting an abstract or registration can be found on the conference website.
