As a nation, we love sitting in Hotel Ballrooms, listening to retired athletes talk about the good old days, and the funny things that went on, 5-10-15, even 20 years ago.

We’ve been doing it for years – 5-10-15, even 20 years!

As an alternative, how about hosting your own corporate event? With a similar, and yet very different theme? A very current theme?

Michael Blucher speaks over lunch or dinner about what really goes on in the world of professional sport. The personalities, the pressures, the precious behavior and of course the pitfalls, explained in a way you’ve never heard, nor contemplated before. He’ll make you think, he’ll make you laugh, he’ll probably make you shake your head in disbelief.

He also touches on some of the less obvious lessons we can take from the world of professional sport, and apply to our own very similar – yet vastly different – circumstances.


Michael Blucher Speaking“We run a number of boardroom lunches for clients and professional partners each year. Recently we had Michael run a lunch session for us and it was definitely one of the most engaging, entertaining and edifying we’ve ever hosted. By relaying a wide range of sporting anecdotes and  stories Michael made us laugh – but he also used his experiences to ask us questions about our own organisations and ourselves that made us think. A huge success – I’m looking forward to the next one!” – John Barton, Shadforth Financial Group 

“The Bubble Boys book lunch was one of the most interesting corporate events I have been involved with. The 25 guests were enthralled by Michael’s anecdotes and off the record stories from decades of involvement with professional sport and sporting personalities. The book was a very well received gift and I still hear back from many of the guests that they really enjoyed the read. “ – Peter Davis – State Manager, Licensed, Coca Cola Ltd  

“Michael was recently the guest speaker at a boardroom lunch I hosted for 15 of my best trade customers. These particular gentlemen get invited to every imaginable corporate event, and yet without exception, they agreed it was one of the best functions they’d ever attended. The insights, the anecdotes, the honest appraisal of what really goes on in professional sport – it was compelling listening, but it was also thought provoking. I know the guys took away something they could apply to their own lives.” – Nick Bainbrigge, State Manager, Aristocrat Technologies, Australia.

“Michael’s insight into elite athletes and the world of sport is extraordinary. He engaged all and sparked meaningful thought and debate.  A great opportunity to spend an afternoon with clients away from work.” – John Erzetich, Ord Minett.

Michael recently presented at a boardroom event at McInnes Wilson Lawyers, It was well attended by a number of the firm’s major clients who left declaring it was one of the best functions of this type they’d ever experienced. As a firm, we have used Michael on a number of occasions in the past and would happily recommend his services for events that engage both staff and clients.” – Mark Woolley, Partner, MCW
