Alisa Camplin OAM

Olympic Medallist, Motivational and Leadership Speaker

Alisa Camplin became famous as Australia’s first female Winter Olympic Gold Medallist at the 2001 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics but these days she is better known as a leader, juggling a dynamic portfolio of sport, business and governance roles.

Learning to ski at just 19 years of age, Alisa broke nearly every bone in her body as she climbed through the ranks, pushing through many physical, mental and emotional setbacks to eventually dominate the sport of freestyle aerial skiing.

While she was training to become an Olympic aerial skier, Alisa also completed a Bachelor of Information Technology degree and began her international career as a senior executive with IBM. She won two Olympic Medals, a World Championships Title, two back-to-back World Cup Grand Prix Championships and 19 World Cup Podium finishes, all while maintaining an international professional career with IBM.

Upon retirement from her sport, Alisa returned to the corporate world, where her global career with IBM spanned 16 years. She held a number of senior executive positions spanning business leadership, brand strategy, sales, business development and service delivery. She is known for fostering an accountable and resilient culture and thrives on building high performance outcome orientated teams.

In 2011, after losing her first child to Congenital Heart Disease, Alisa turned heart-wrenching personal adversity into opportunity and established the charity Finnan’s Gift, raising over $1M for the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne. Now leading from the boardroom, Alisa is fresh, honest and deliberate in her pursuits, combining business fundamentals with an authentic resilient attitude in order to succeed.

As the Australian Olympic Committee’s Chef de Mission for Youth Olympic Games Teams (2012, 2016), Alisa Camplin is now focused on leading Australia’s next generation of Winter Olympians. In 2014 she co-hosted the Ten Network’s prime-time coverage of the Sochi Winter Olympic Games. She is also a Federal Government Commissioner, Non-Executive Director of the Collingwood Football Club and she recently lead great change in the Australian Sports Philanthropy sector.
