Dr Bruce Powell was Australia’s longest-serving State Director of Organ and Tissue Donation, a highly experienced Anaesthetist, and Head of Department in Intensive Care Unit at Rockingham Hospital, Western Australia.
Extremely fortunate to survive a terrible cycling accident in 2018, Bruce has been gifted precious time to explore a broad range of exciting, stimulating topics. When he isn’t writing for medical journals, he is working on his first book, his blog, or recording his new podcast series, ‘Say that Again?!’.
Bruce offers insight and inspiration, #startingaconversation around topics including leadership, resilience and uncertainty. Through his experiences leading Health Services, Departments and in the military, Bruce shares ideas about how to endure and excel.
Bruce remains committed to advocating for the life-saving gift of organ donation, and now fulfils ambassadorial roles for mental health and brain injuries.
Thanks to the dramatic, untimely ending of his medical career, he has a unique opportunity to rediscover himself, and commit to a new career, striving to better understand the world we live in.
“Through knowledge we each gain control of our lives, empowering us to explore and prosper.“
