Breakfast with Nick Farr-Jones AM
Breakfast with Nick Farr-Jones AM - Leadership in Sport & Business
You are invited to join Nick Farr-Jones AM for Breakfast at Sydney Rotary Club on Tuesday 10th July at 7:30am at the Castlereagh Hotel.
Nick is one of the most popular speakers in Australia today. Articulate and intelligent, he is a natural leader with an innate ability to motivate. He played an integral part in the success of the Wallabies and was an inspiration to his teammates.
Nick captained the team that brought home the Rugby Union World Cup in 1991, the 1992 Bledisloe Cup and convincingly defeated the Springboks in August 1992. He was Australia’s most-capped scrum half and its most-capped captain.
Always a sportsman, Nick Farr-Jones captained every school team in which he played. Academically he achieved high standards as well, going from Newington College to Sydney University, where he studied Law from 1980-1985, before joining the Sydney city law firm of Garland Hawthorn Brahe.
Nick Farr-Jones is a true ambassador for Rugby Union. His effect on the game and influence in sporting circles beyond rugby was recognised in 1992 when he was awarded the AM. He retired from professional playing in 1993. Following a decade with the investment bank, Societe Generale, in 2010 Nick moved to Taurus Funds Management, one of Australia’s first resources hedge funds.
Nick Farr Jones has a winning combination – he has energy, enthusiasm and an instinctive understanding of what it takes to excel in any field. With persistence and strength of character, he is a model of excellence in the sporting field and beyond.
Nick is a former Senator of the University of Sydney, Director of NRMA, Councillor of the City of Sydney and Patron of the Children's Leukaemia and Cancer Foundation. He is currently a Director of the Wesley Mission and recently created his own charity known as Touch Life raising awareness and funds to support Wesley’s work in the homeless space.
