Twilight Drinks with Dual Olympian, Richard Pengelly : "Future Talent - Nurture It Now": How can we provide positive environments to help young adults prosper and realise their true potential in life? Other events...
Join us for what promises to be a fascinating presentation from Richard Pengelly, Dual Olympian and Chairman of True Blue Dreaming, a not-for-profit youth and community development mentoring program which seeks to link university students as mentors to educationally disadvantaged youth and children in remote and regional WA. Richard’s presentation will have clear implications for anyone in business needing to build their talent base or better understand their current workforce.

In this Twilight Drinks presentation, Richard will share his experiences of working closely with young people. Since graduating as a PE teacher from UWA in 1981, Richard has been Chaplain at Hale School, become an ordained Anglican priest, run a large parish, been a university college Chaplain, Assistant Professor in Sports Science and Sub-Dean of UWA Community. He now works as the Director of Service Learning and Leadership at Christ Church Grammar School.

Richard is a dual Olympian, has been a World Championship player and captain of the Australian water polo team. He is the Chair of Special Olympics WA, a Canon of St George’s cathedral and is on the board of the WA Institute of Sport. He has also enjoyed media work as a commentator for the ABC and Channel 7.
