Keynote Speaker - Duncan Wallace

Executive Director, SpinalCure Australia
Duncan Wallace
40 years ago, while managing a coffee plantation in the Papua New Guinea highlands, Duncan was hit by a drunk driver, which left him a C4/5 quadriplegic. After his injury, Duncan was transported to Sydney, where he has lived ever since. He refocused his energies on the emergent IT industry receiving recognition for the development of multimedia literacy programs and Australia’s first major travel website.
Duncan joined SpinalCure in 2011 as CEO and was elected to the Board in 2016. Since handing the CEO reins to Kathryn Borkovic in 2022, Duncan has focussed on guiding SpinalCure’s research aims and promoting the cause through speaking engagements—using his slightly irreverent sense of humour and lived experience to shine a light on the very real prospects for a cure.
Outside his work life, Duncan lives with his wife and her two young sons. They leave precious little time for hobbies other than a glass of fine wine with a good meal.
