Winner – 2020 Prime Minister’s Veterans’ Employment Awards – Small Business Category
In 2013 Emergency Australia was established, with the objective of combining the unique skills and experiences of military veterans, with civilian emergency service personnel. By combining these skills, experiences and geographic locations, a truly unique and holistic service could be delivered across the Asia pacific region.
Our focus is to provide Training and Emergency solutions across 3 key areas: training, medical support and WHS.
High Fidelity Training:
As the saying goes, “train hard, fight easy” we believe through exposure, realism and a hands on approach to training, confidence can be instilled to respond in a variety of contexts. We use the lessons learnt from our unique backgrounds to contextualise training for maximum engagement and knowledge retention.
The team at Emergency Australia is excited to announce the launch of our High-Fidelity Training and Simulation Centre, right here in Brisbane.
The unique capabilities of this facility offer enhanced training opportunities for emergency, medical professionals, the military, law enforcement and first responders across the private and government sector.
The High-Fidelity Training and Simulation Centre is a two-story facility featuring a 360-degree augmented reality environment, as well as a control room, debriefing room and reception area.
The 360-degree augmented reality environment is unique in that it provides complete audiovisual immersion for the student in the training simulation. This training environment can be designed to replicate urban or remote settings, for example a mine, a hospital, a rural car crash or a military environment, depending on your professional requirements.
In addition to the audiovisual immersion, students train on state-of-the art patient simulators including Iaerdals Simman 3G. These simulators provide for a realistic training environment and build student confidence through exposure. They also allow for structured debriefings across a range of skill sets and clinical interventions.
For enhanced resilience training, students have the option to wear Astroskins and Hexoskins, to assess their vital signs. In our training setting, these smart garments allow the trainer to assess the biometric responses of students, such as their stress response. This allows for a more detailed and personalised performance assessment whilst providing active interventions to control the stress response.
The High-Fidelity Training and Simulation Centre offers highly-motivated individuals the opportunity to enhance their professional development and obtain qualifications in a number of nationally-recognised courses. We can also work with your company to develop a contextualised training plan to suit the needs of your team.
As Emergency Australia is a Registered Training Organisation 41448, our qualifications are nationally recognised. Our courses range from 1 day courses to diploma level accreditations for individuals and groups.
Each site and event is unique. Medical support needs to ensure the stabilisation and extraction of personnel, to definitive care. Our specialty is remote medical support using Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) registered healthcare professionals, with experience in complex and remote environments. Our staff have experience across both government and private sectors including mining, oil and gas, motorsport, corporate and event medical support.
We understand the annual legislative requirements for Australian organisations, to ensure staff, contractors and visitors operate in a safe, supportive environment. Each workplace is unique, we work to tailor and automate a solution to enhance safety in the workplace, whilst supporting daily operational requirements.
We look forward to working closely with you and supporting your requirements.

Designed for active military, emergency services personnel and those who want to support them, Brother Shave is an innovative new subscription service that provides necessary shaving products at a huge cost savings—with a percentage of profits going to aid those suffering from physical wounds, PTSD, anxiety, depression and other mental illnesses.
Of course, we men folk have to shave every day in order to maintain the required standard, right? The major razor companies are charging a premium for an everyday product that simply does not cost that much to manufacture.
By way of introduction, I am Anthony, the founder of Brother Shave. I am 28 years old and have served in the Australian Defence Force for the past nine years, with deployments to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Fiji and on border security. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with all three services whilst maintaining both command and training positions.
During this time, I have seen the stress and anxiety that comes from these operations—as well as the lasting impact that often comes following deployment. That is why I am an advocate for the mantra “It ain’t weak to speak,” while using my new business to support Soldier On, New Zealand Heroes Trust and Livin. Most important, while providing a means to purchase a necessity for a fraction of retailer pricing, I am using this platform to help remove the stigma associated with mental illness.
I hope you will join me in the close shave club in order to turn a requirement into a reason.

Beef Chief Jerky
The Beef Chief is all about small batch, REAL Beef Jerky made for the Australian belly with a mission to keep and deliver his home-made Beef Jerky style for all people to enjoy anywhere, anytime.
But how did Beef Chief come about? Being raised on a cattle farm our little boy beef chief had just begun to learn the trade inside out. As he matured into a wild young man so did his knowledge and love for quality top shelf beef.
It was when The Beef Chief was in the thick of a 4 day scorching hot military exercise as part of an 8 man section he was tasked to set outpost on top of a hill. Trekking uphill with 40kg worth of weaponry, ammo, body armour and a full back pack quickly changed Queenslands “sunny state” nickname into something much more personal.
Camp was finally set up by late afternoon, boots off and 40kg lighter with a cool breeze sweeping through the air the men began to settle in, even the sun began to rest. With forearm to forehead the Beef Chief wipes the last bit of sweat off his brow and begins to reach for his reward. Instead of his typical RAT pack he pulled out some store bought beef jerky ready to distribute amongst men.
What should have felt like victory was quickly overrun by pure and utter disappointment as he pulls out soggy, flavourless baby food mush posing as Beef Jerky.
If there was ever a moment in your life that smacked you right up the side of your head, this was it.
That single experience sent The Beef Chief on his journey to redeeming how that moment should have been.
While still in the military he would begin trialing different sauces, marinades, cooking times and techniques with the very same men he was on top of that hill and was soon given the name of “The Beef Chief” which he wore with pride.
With every bag of The Original Beef chief Premium Beef Jerky there’s a mouthful of Australian made grit, forged in tough times.
So go on, take your boots off and dig in.

Business & Consulting
National Service Financial
Hi all, thanks again for connecting. A little about myself. I served 19 years with the Royal Australian Navy and Airforce, which saw me on Operational deployments on 5 occasions. I was medically discharged in 2017 after I blew both my knees out as well as a combination of existing injuries. This forced me to re-invent and re-educate myself for a life moving forward. Having been through the transition process I personally know how hard it can be and the specific issues that transitioning members face. My transition went quite well, as I was quite diligent and willing to research as well as surround myself with people that could help.
It was my journey that lead me to form the company to assist other veterans as they face the challenges of transitioning and how they then re-establish themselves in the civilian world. I have the belief that veteran founded business is perfectly placed to assist in transition and to navigate the myriad of complex financial issues that veterans face moving forward. Veterans understand and trust their veteran community.
I have been successful to date in forging key relationships and have been steadily building a suite of professionals to assist in this social impact enterprise. Companies that I have been successful in forging a relationship with include Legacy Australia, With You With Me, Galaxy Finance and Property, Swiss 8, Royal Australian Navy Rugby League, Shartru Wealth, Coherics and Mixed Mediums, Wright Lawyers as well as we are at the initial stages of working with the Defence Community Organisation. Plus a host of Defence Force Members, both current and Ex-serving.
- We have positioned ourselves to offer financial services as part of a new Veteran’s Centre in Nowra NSW. This initiative is funded by RSL NSW and we believe we can offer a consistent education based product in assisting my veteran community.
- We have teamed with Ben Rice and his Company “Coherics”. This will see us deliver a consistent and crucial service to military personnel who are discharging, providing a clear financial direction leading up to , during and post discharge.
National Service Financial (NSF) promotes financial awareness of issues that impact upon serving military personnel, transitioning personnel and veterans. We specialise in advice for members going through medical discharge and strongly believe that no one issue should be treated in isolation. Through a holistic approach we are here to help people at every stage in their military and post military life. We have outlined a range of issues that we believe need to be addressed in a wholistic approach to managing transition, as well as solving 2 key problems.
- Military personnel are not making the most of their time in service financially.
- The vast majority of members whom discharge have no real direction on how to survive their transition and then thrive in the outside world.
Importantly we have developed our NSF Pillars, which are physical/mental health, employment, education, finance, legal and resilience. We are seeking to promote awareness around these pillars and how ADF members need to consider them during and after they transition. We have aligned ourselves with a range of strategic partners, being people I had personal contact with through my transition, professionals in various fields, also companies they are nationally based and can provide a platform to assist military personnel, spouses and their families.
Since being medically discharged, I have established my own financial services and planning business. National Service Financial was established to provide financial advice to military personnel and veterans. I consider finance to be a key area for military personnel as there is little education around managing your money whilst you are within the ADF.
Am extremely proud to say that we are a self-funded and self-sustaining business. I have been happy to fund this concept as it is something that I am passionate about. We have had some dialogue with DVA around some of their funding options for transitioning personnel. The next stages for NSF this year is to create some more structured content through seminars, web based programs and online education content. To undertake this we are looking to partner with current ESOs to gain grant funding and other support from the government.

Whilst Craig Ball has been presenting for years, he doesn’t just speak from theoretical research. His ideas and techniques have been honed from years putting into practice exactly what he shares with audiences, sometimes biting off more than he can chew he has learnt not only how to apply the principles he shares, but all of the life hacks to use them to be most effective.
Whether its through dealing with setbacks and turning failure into success or feeling stuck and having no control over your situation, Craig makes the complex simple to get through adversity make it your ally and even learn to enjoy the process.
He has done this through constantly refining his approach, through military service Craig chose to put himself in harms way. Taking opportunities that would allow him to go to Afghanistan, twice as he wasn’t happy with the experience the first time. Going full time in the army at 33 years of age going up against much younger guys to try to make the grade in a trial by fire approach to succeed against the odds and often after coming back from multiple setbacks.
What’s most important to him is the outcomes he is able to achieve for his audiences, this program is definitely not about Craig, as he likes to put it,
‘life is not a popularity contest and sometimes people just dislike you because you showed up, deal with it readjust you expectations, or remove them and move on.’
His passion is sharing with his audiences to enable them to live life on their terms, we look forward and are humbled by the opportunity to help you do likewise…if you choose to work with us.
Change Seminars was formed as result of an identified need in the community to reach out to and share with audiences a message of empowerment through taking the hard steps and asking hard questions of yourself, in order to create positive change in your life.
