Sydney Rugby Business Network with David Kirk
Monday, 12 August 2013 from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Our thanks to Mark Ella for joining us at our July event. It was a real thrill for everyone in the room to hear from a Wallaby Invincible!
Our line up of outstanding rugby personalities continues for August, where we are pleased to welcome the
1987 Rugby World Cup winning captain David Kirk.
David Kirk's career spans the top level of both business and sport. He was Chief Executive Officer of Fairfax Holdings Limited, Australia's largest publishing group, from 2005 to 2008. His current positions include Chairman of the Hoyts Theatre Group and a Director of Forsyth Barr, one of the largest investment banks in New Zealand.
David's first degree was in Medicine. He graduated from the University of Otago in New Zealand in 1985. In sport, he represented New Zealand in rugby union from 1983-1987. He played for the Otago and Auckland provinces and captained the All Blacks in 1986 and 1987.
In 1987, under his leadership the All Blacks won the inaugural Rugby World Cup. In 1987 he was awarded an MBE for services to rugby. In 1987 he also took up a Rhodes Scholarship at Oxford University, studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics. He returned to New Zealand to become Policy advisor to then Prime Minister Jim Bolger.
This is an outstanding opportunity to hear from a highly regarded rugby and business professional on the eve of the Bledisloe Cup.
