A long-term mate of Menslink, Ben Alexander, is kicking things back off for us in August.
Over a stellar rugby union career that spanned 10 years, Ben Alexander played 72 tests for the Australian Wallabies and became the ACT Brumbies most capped player after 154 games. When he retired in 2018, he was a much-loved member of the Brumbies team whose impact on the field would be missed. But what was ahead for him post-rugby was going to require more strength than packing down in a scrum against the All Blacks.
Ben’s talk will share the personal challenges and hurdles he has faced since his retirement and the effort it’s taken to jump the hurdles in his way. For Ben, the big thing was discovering who he was outside of “Ben the Rugby player” and finding pride in different areas of his life including launching his Alfred app and his successful hospitality business The Dock in Kingston.

Join us on August 9th 2023 at the Statesman Hotel in Curtin to meet Ben and hear him talk.
