Podcast: Lynne Anderson on why the Paralympics offers much more than a feel good story

Lynne Anderson, CEO of the Australian Paralympic Committee, has played a key role in the growing recognition of paralympic sports and its athletes, on the back of important commercial and media partnerships … and amazing personal stories.

Lynne talks about the influence of the Paralympics, which extends well beyond the sporting arena into the community and corporate sectors.

But Lynne talks about the challenges remain, and why there’s still a long way to go for Paralympians to be recognised for more than just a feel good story.
