Sparks of Beauty in Sport

"In the Zone"


A conversation on the role of sport in building community, celebrating the human spirit and imparting worth—and not just the monetary kind. Featuring voices from Melbourne’s other religion: Footy!  

Guest Speakers

Three-time Premiership Player and Team of the Century for the Richmond “Tigers” Football Club, Mervyn is recognised as one of the game’s greats. Following his playing career, he moved into coaching and recruitment, most recently for the Essendon Football Club. Mervyn’s passion is mentoring players from all walks of life, supporting their holistic development on and off the field.


In only her second season for the AFLW, Emma has won back-to-back Best & Fairest Awards, twice been named in the All Australian Team and was a key member of the 2018 Western Bulldogs’ Premiership Team. She also won the AFLW Best & Fairest in 2018. As well as playing footy, Emma works full-time and plays cricket for the Victorian Spirit and Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash. Ms Emma Kearney appears by arrangement with Saxton Speakers Bureau.
