Through his years in a NSW SWAT team and counter-terrorism units, and working for the US Department of Defense, Shane Horsburgh knows a man's world like few others. During his deployment to Iraq, Shane gained a new perspective on men's lives and the pressures placed on today's men.
Using his extensive experience, and his business and risk management skills, Shane now delivers corporate and public programs around these and other conflict resolution issues. An accomplished public speaker, Shane now also gives school talks to teenage boys, addressing what it means to be a real man.
