Guest Speaker Program – Derrick McManus inspires with true stories of bravery


Former member of the elite South Australian Police STAR Division, Derrick McManus, recently came to The Media Store to talk about his own experiences, including being shot 14 times with a high powered weapon and laying for 3 hours bleeding waiting to be rescued by his fellow officers as they engaged in a shoot out with the offender.

Derrick spoke about the lessons he has learned from this experience and what being a part of such a unit taught him in regards to leadership, commitment, clear thinking and teamwork.

It was a moving and fascinating opportunity to listen to someone who had a life changing experience and made the most of it.
