Ken Cosgrove’s Inspirational Story

In this episode of the Changing Lives podcast we talk to Ken Cosgrove, a former accountant and current urban search and rescue volunteer.

Now in his 60’s, Ken recently completed a Diploma of Paramedical Science to extend his years of service with the international rescue team “Gift of the Givers” who respond to some of the world’s most horrific disasters in significantly under-resourced areas.

In our discussion, Ken shares some of his most impactful stories from the field, as well as an inspiring perspective on how success in business left him with a mandate to give back both locally and abroad.

We hope you enjoy this insightful and uplifting episode of Changing Lives, brought to you by the Australian Paramedical College.
