Rainbow’s ‘Blokes Night Out’

Parkin David


Fellas……come along with your mates, Dad’s, brothers, uncles, grandfathers, sons and listen to the wonderful David Parkin.

David Parkin is one of the best business / motivational speakers in Australia – “Powerful, intelligent and compelling”. As a well-known achiever in both the sporting and academic fields, Parkin relates his experiences to the world of business through working with numerous and varied organisations and corporations. David is currently a Media Commentator on Fox Footy and ABC Radio.

Parkin’s accomplishments as a football player and coach are outstanding: he captained Hawthorn Football Club to their second premiership in 1971, and then coached them to a flag in 1978. He later coached Carlton Football Club to successive Premierships in 1981-82, and is regarded as one of the super-coaches of the 70’s and 80’s. David was inducted to the AFL Football Hall of Fame in May 2002.

Parkin’s academic achievements include developing and lecturing in the Sports and Exercise Science at Deakin University, Melbourne Campus. David Holds a Bachelor of Education from the University of Western Australia as well as writing and publishing more than a dozen books and numerous articles.

A Health Educator by trade, he continues to work for the improvement of men’s health across all Australian communities. As a prostate cancer survivor specifically, he strives to raise awareness, and money for research, equipment, and support services, related to this insidious disease. His Male Bag Foundation has, via their annual Male Bag Ride (on postie motorcycles) raised in excess of $750,000 over the past four years.

He is an inspirational and motivating speaker and you are sure to gain something from listening to him.
