Ged Williams

Former Executive Director of Nursing at Gold Coast Health 2007-2013.

Since 2014 I have been living and working in Abu Dhabi, UAE as a Chief Nursing Officer in the public health system.

In 1999 I formed the Australian College of Critical Care Nurses as a single company/professional college

In 2001 I was elected a director of the World Federation of Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine (The only non-doctor Director), ceased role in 2009.... but remain an active mentor and guide to the federation.

In 2001, I formed the World Federation of Critical Care Nurses (WFCCN) and have remained an active mentor and guide to this group ever since, WFCCN now has almost 50 national societies as members world wide.

As the "elder statesman" of WFCCN I am the mentor and advisor to many small critical care nursing societies and groups in poorer countries around the world. In the last 10 years I have helped form Regional federations and national societies in Africa, South America, South Asia and SE Asia.

In the last 5 years I have concentrated heavily in the SAARC region visiting India, Sri Lanka, Maldives and Nepal. I have visited India on 4 occasions working with their critical care nurses and will be there again from 7-10 February 2019 for the SAARC region federation of critical care nurses conference at KLE University, Belgaum, Karnataka.

Last year while in Kathmandu working with Nepalese critical care doctors and nurses I stayed in a hotel that hosted 2 rotary clubs but unfortunately neither of them met while I was there, I was only there for 4 days. About 8 years ago I attended a Rotary meeting in Eshowe Zululand while I was coordinating a conference in Durban South Africa. While there I facilitated a fund raiser with colleagues from other parts of the world to contribute funding towards the building of school classrooms in the poorer parts of South Africa.
