Aspire Performance Training were a corporate sponsor of the MercyCare Oration for the forth consecutive year.
This years Oration took place on 21st September at the Hyatt Regency Perth and was attended by over 500 people including a number of AspirePT staff and our key clients.
The 2017 orator was Saroo Brierley, the real life figure behind the film Lion, which is currently taking the world by storm. Saroo shared his story of becoming lost at the age of 5 in India and being separated from his biological family. After coming close to all kinds of misadventure, Saroo was eventually adopted and relocated to Tasmania where he grew up with the Brierley family. Saroo shared how he searched for his Indian family, with almost no information. Armed with persistence, the support of his Australian family and the newly invented Google Earth, Saroo eventually located what he hoped was his hometown, and then traveled there to see if he had indeed found home.
It was truly an inspiration story and another successful Oration which AspirePT were pleased to be apart of.
