“The positive and optimistic path in life is a difficult one and JMF recognises this by providing support and assistance”.

A little about Ross

Ross Cochrane is a Director at 4Cabling and has been a Board Member since 2015.

How he first met John

I first met John Maclean at a fundraiser for the Wheelchair Sports Assocation of NSW in 1999.  John was recognised by the Minister for Sports and Tourism, John Brown, for his outstanding achievements.

John responded with a humbling and inspirational speech, which focused on maximising your abilities rather than focusing on disability.

From this introduction I wanted to expose my team at Express Data to this type of thinking and engaged John as both a speaker and mentor for our team.

John was instrumental in motivating and mentoring our managers and team members to be fully engaged and to achieve their personal and company goals.

What is so important to you about JMF

JMF is a lot more that a charitable foundation that provides funding and support for needy kids.  The foundation is a reflection of the values, attitude and commitment that John Maclean has demonstrated in the way that he has lived his life.  As important as grant giving is to the recipients the inspiration, motivation and example that John provides in how to deal with adversity and challenges is probably even more valuable.

The positive and optimistic path in life is a difficult one and JMF recognises this by providing support and assistance however the foundation also conveys a message of hope, motivation and inspiration to be the best that you can be through John Maclean’s story.
