Australian two-time winter Olympian Jeremy Rolleston is an inspiring and engaging personality with exceptional sporting, business and life achievement. He is a role model for determination, motivation, perseverance, and inner strength and draws upon a lifetime of heartaches and successes to inspire others to follow their dreams and achieve 'success' that transcends sport into business and life in general.
Jeremy regards representing his country as the ultimate honour and has represented his country in two sports - rugby and bobsleigh. In 2006 at the XX Winter Olympic Games in Torino, Italy Jeremy piloted Australia's two-man bobsleigh to the equal best-ever Australian result. This was even more remarkable considering it was his first full-season as a pilot. Along the way Jeremy has competed at numerous World Championships, won the 2006 Challenge Cup and competed at a number of World Cup and other races, as both pilot and brakeman. Then at the most recent XXI Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada, the Australian public shared the heartbreaking crash that Jeremy was involved in on a track that had already tragically claimed the life of one olympic athlete over a week earlier. In what was a devastating situation Jeremy exemplified the honour, dignity and sportsmanship we look for in Olympians, not just when they win but when everything goes wrong.
During his rugby days, Jeremy played in numerous representative teams including the Australian Legends team, the Australian Universities team and the Australian B (Legends) sevens side, before a heart-breaking injury in the Fiji Sevens prevented him from playing for Australia in the sevens world cup at the Hong Kong Sevens. Following that disappointment he played professionally for Italian side Rovigo in the European Shield and Italian Championships before retiring to pursue bobsleigh.
Off the field and away from the ice, Jeremy is an intelligent and articulate individual, who is as passionate about life as he is his sport. He won scholarships to both school and university and throughout his sport career he has maintained a successful corporate career. He left his job as an Executive Director at prestigious investment banking firm Goldman Sachs JB Were to train full time for the recent Winter Olympics and will resume his financial markets career shortly. He is also founder and producer of one of Sydney's largest fashion shows – the Propeller Fashion Show.
His speeches can be tailored to any situation and he is ideally placed to speak to both business and non-business audiences on topics such as daring to dream , removing limitations , motivation dedication and commitment , goal-setting, life balance and leadership.
Client Comments for Jeremy Rolleston

- Jeremy is an inspiring, passionate and motivating speaker who was able to communicate and relate his story and the framework of successful people in a simple, down to earth and easy to understand way. Despite many setbacks he was able to be successful through his clear and focused approach to goal setting, both short term and long term. He is a great example of what can be achieved through determination, hard work and going after your dreams. My team was able to use the strategies discussed in the presentation in our day to day business whilst at the same time being challenged to live our own lives to the full and follow our own dreams.
