Who is Doug Wright?

Opportunities Occur out of Diversity

A survivor of a head on vehicle collision and passionate about helping people overcome their inner most fears, (especially when recovering from trauma). Doug lived to share his story and his motto is “never give up”. He loves what he does because it makes an immediate difference to people’s lives.They see possibility where once there was none.

When you look at the positive side of life instead of the negative your attitude changes. The challenges we face in our lives give us the resolve to authentically look at ourselves. We can’t do anything about yesterday, other than learn from it, we can’t do anything about tomorrow as it hasn’t arrived yet, all we can do is be creative about the NOW.

The Crash Survivor Documentary

In 2016, media network PLGRM, in association with Orica, produced a documentary “The Crash Survivor” on Doug’s experience.  The event was sponsored by Image Group International, Orica, Gelato Messina, Sample Brew and City of Melbourne.

Doug’s involvement in these workshops is very inspirational and has a high impact on the audience. His ‘never give up’ presentation, engagement and empathetic delivery with the audience about his personal experiences and battles to overcome his horrific injuries from his Traffic Crash in Middlemount is a true inspiration to us all.

I met Doug through his presentation.  Doug’s commitment driven from his own tragic accident should be an inspiration to us all.  Doug shows us that we can all make a difference.

Doug is a legend! I met him through really unfortunate circumstances as part of his medical team. As a surgeon and member of the Trauma team, I looked after Doug throughout the entire, long hospital journey; he inspired myself and so many other health professional with his optimistic, ‘never give up’ charisma.
