Be inspired by the man who overcame adversity to achieve excellence in life. Li Cunxin was born into utter poverty in Mao’s Communist China. At a young age, he was selected to train at Mao’s Beijing Dance Academy where he learned discipline, resilience, determination and perseverance.

Li’s astounding drive and relentless work made him one of the best dancers in the world and the man behind the successful book and now blockbuster film Mao’s Last Dancer. Li then made a successful career transition from ballet into finance.

He was a senior manager at one of the largest stockbroking firms in Australia and served on the boards of the Bionics Institute, The Australian Ballet and Councilor of the Australian Council for the Arts. In 2009, he was named Australian Father of the Year and is currently the new Artistic Director of Queensland Ballet.
