The life of Paul de Gelder sounds more like a fictional book than reality. His choices have taken him on quite a journey; from being a rebel, to a strip club worker and a drug dealer. He's been an adventurer, a soldier, a fitness fanatic and a Navy diver. His experiences have also led him to become a motivational speaker and encouraged him to mentor kids nationwide. Paul has had an amazing life! Areas of speciality include Change Management Speakers. In early 2009, Paul was testing diving equipment in Sydney Harbour when he was attacked by an enormous bull shark. The attack left him without his right hand and his left leg. Amazingly, instead of this horrific experience causing Paul to feel anger towards this underwater predator, it has resulted in him developing a strong appreciation for them.
