Andrew Barrett, Chief Connector & Podcast Host, Safety on Tap

Andrew Barrett loves doing different things to get, well, different results. He launched Safety on Tap, Australia's #1 professional development podcast to support health and safety leaders around the globe to improve. His approach to dialogue, curiosity and rapport has seen him become synonymous with forward-thinking learning and professional growth. Seeing the demand for alternatives to traditional professional development, he founded Safety on Tap Connected, a growth accelerator program enhancing the learning and in turn performance of health and safety professionals. Andrew lives outside the box, often running towards the very edges of what's possible. He loves doing this with likeminded safety leaders when advising on internal programs, facilitation, group coaching and speaking at conferences

Liam Malone, Paralympic Gold Medallist

The retired blade-running Paralympian has followed his passion for technology and innovation to work with Auckland-based artificial intelligence firm Soul Machines.

Liam is widely known as the world number one bladerunner – hitting the headlines when after less than three short years in the sport he broke the previous Paralympic records held by Oscar Pistorius. His story of hitting rock bottom while at university to turning it all around and receiving two golds and a silver medal at the 2016 Paralympic Games is nothing short of incredible. His times on the track make him New Zealand's second fastest 400m sprinter ever – legs or not!

Liam's awards also include the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to Athletics, Disabled Sportsperson of the Year at the 54th Halberg Awards, and winner of the Sovereign Insurance ‘Make a 'start up competition in 2015.
