“As a Professional Speaker and an MC, Richard shares lessons learned and stories that are as inspirational and motivating as they are entertaining”
Over the past 20 years he has helped many Clients achieve a successful outcome for their event as an MC or motivational, entertaining Guest Speaker.
As a professional Sportsman, he learned about being the best you can possibly be working in a team environment.
Richard Champion or ‘Champs’ as he is better known, has had a football career spanning 14 years, including 10 years with the Brisbane Bears / Lions before retirement at the end of the 2000 season. During his career he finished in the top six places for the Best & Fairest Awards three times. He also won the Bears’ prestigious “Most Professional Player” award in 1994 & “Best Clubman” honours in 1995. Qualifying for entry to the AFL’s prestigious 200 Club at the conclusion of his career, Richard Champion won rarely-given, lavish praise from coach Leigh Matthews for the professional manner in which he conducted himself.
He was awarded Brisbane Lions Life Membership at the end of the 2000 season for his 10 years of loyal service to the club. Richard Champion has a multi-talented personality, always prominent in the club’s off-field activities and in 1998 won an AFL Talent Show on Network Seven for his marvelous impersonation of Jimmy Barnes. That singing talent was put to good use when Champs competed in the popular Channel Seven program “It Takes Two”. You can also catch Richard Champion on a variety of radio shows, but he really shines on The Great South East each week and “Creek to Coast” with Channel Seven.
He also co-hosts radio programmes and is a regular commentator on the AFL when the Brisbane Lions and Gold Coast Suns play at the Gabba and Metricon Stadium. There is no challenge that Richard Champion has backed away from and his competitive nature and high level of fitness make him an obvious choice for tougher assignments.
