Jordan FogartyJordan Fogarty is a founder and director of B Done, an innovative marketing and business support company. He is passionate about entrepreneurship and is in his element when he is innovating new ways to solve challenges.

Jordan’s life was turned upside down in 2009 when he was a passenger in a car that collided with a tree in South West Australia. This accident left him in a coma for 5 days with 20 plus broken bones and doctors fearing the worst. Jordan was told he would be wheelchair bound for over a year and unlikely to return to his previous health. Against all odds Jordan fought these dire predictions, was out of hospital in 5 weeks and running on the beach in less than 4 months from the date of accident. He has become a medical case studied around the country and an example for the power of determination and self-belief. While his recovery has been extraordinary it has in no way been easy, and he is always open to share his experiences of how he overcame the vast challenges he has faced.

Jordan’s time is spent between working on exciting new ventures, community projects and he is really in his element in the water scuba diving, swimming or free diving.
