The ATM Industry Association announced that survivor extraordinaire, Brett Archibald, who was rescued after over 28 hours lost at sea without a lifejacket, will be keynote speaker at the association’s conference in October at the Cape Town waterfront.
In April this year, Archibald fell overboard off a charter boat in the Mentawai Straits in the Indian Ocean while unconscious and was forced to endure stormy seas, being stung by a Portuguese man of war and jellyfish, bitten by small fish, attacked by seagulls, hit by a shark, and all while treading water for 28.5 hours alone in the sea.
“We’re absolutely delighted to attract a sought-after speaker with such an incredible true story to tell, “CEO Mike Lee said. “He’s sure to inspire and motivate our members and delegates.”
A businessman, entrepreneur and philanthropist, Archibald will deliver his talk “Miracle at Sea: The true-life drama of Brett Archibald’s 28.5 hour ordeal and survival in treacherous conditions – lessons for turbulent times” at an ATMIA conference, 9-11th October, at the Cape Town waterfront.
