Alisa Camplin OAM
Australia's first female Winter Olympic gold medallist, Alisa Camplin, famously landed a spectacular triple twisting double somersault at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics just six weeks after breaking her ankles.
Using her renowned mental toughness, Alisa overcame unparalleled expectations, personal doubts and the pressure of repeat success to take Olympic Bronze at the Turin 2006 Winter Olympics, just four months after her second major knee reconstruction.
Alisa has 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.
Alisa has an in-depth understanding of the IT Industry having overseen every major aspect of the end-to-end IT services model. She set the strategy and directed transformations for an $800M global IT services business and led $200M+ businesses to year on year growth in mature or declining markets.
Alisa sits on the Board and Audit Committees of many high profile organisations, including the Australian Sports Commission, the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation, the Collingwood Football Club and Olympic Winter Institute of Australia. She was Chair of the Australian Sports Foundation and is co-founder of the charity Finnan’s Gift.
In addition to being the Australian Olympic Committee's Chef de Mission for the 2012 and 2016 Winter Youth Olympic Games teams, Alisa co-hosted the Ten Network’s prime-time coverage of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games.
