Robert Cornthwaite

A former star of Australian football, Robert Cornthwaite was a fan favourite for many Adelaide United fans. The former Socceroo played for multiple teams across the nations of Australia, Korea, and Malaysia and even once featured in the Asian Champions League Final.

However, Robert's career was not all on-field glory and success. He and his family endured a heartbreaking moment while living in Malaysia, separated and isolated from all of their friends and family. Robert's wife Nel who was 24 weeks pregnant went into premature labour, giving birth to a daughter who within an hour would pass away. Robert's story of how he overcame this heartbreak to continue to perform at the highest of levels is a testament to his motivation and is the reason why he sits on PickStar's list of Top 5 Motivational Speakers in Adelaide.

His motivation and determination to break barriers led to him becoming a Paralympian and inspired him to help drive change for other amputees. It was with this that the No Xcuses Mindset was born.
