Michael Voss is one of the all-time greats of AFL football, having played 279 games with the Brisbane Bears/Lions before captaining the Lions to an historic triple premiership hat-trick in 2001-02-03.
He was a 10-year Lions captain who did it all, winning the Brownlow Medal, All-Australian selection five times and the Brisbane Best and Fairest five times among a multitude of personal honours.
And after two years in retirement during which time he worked as an expert commentator and sports newsreader with Channel 10, he jumped into the next phase of his career in September 2008 when appointed coach of the Lions for 2009 and beyond.
In 2014 Voss joined the Port Adelaide Football Club as their midfield manager.
Michael Voss is very involved in charity work and is in demand as a public speaker.
Client Comments for Michael Voss

- Legrand is the world leader in medium voltage electrical products, employing over 30,000 people. Over the past 12 years we have used many high profile business and sports guest speakers at product launches around Australia.
In Queensland we invited Michael Voss to be the guest speaker at the launch of our New Door Entry Product at the Power House at New Farm. His performance on the night was both professional and entertaining. His attention to detail was exceptional in the fact he did some product research, related his presentation to our company image and did the small things like standing at the exit and personally shaking hands with all 150 guests as they left, he joined us after the event at Watts restaurant and mingled with the customers and staff. Because of this I would recommend him to all potential companies looking for a true professional speaker.

- Michael is so much more than an AFL great; with his appeal stretching well beyond your traditional AFL audience it made him an easy choice as a keynote speaker for our state conference. Michael was able to engage a diversified audience and keep them entertained and inspired for the full 60 minutes, his honest and natural style was a refreshing change. I look forward to the opportunity when we can engage Michael again.

- Michael addressed a meeting of a large and diverse group of professionals on high performance team culture, drawing on his personal experience, in a practical and humorous way. The feedback was universally complimentary (even from those who had said "Michael who" initially!) He demonstrated his ability to communicate with a wide range of people in a subsequent meeting with our senior group in which he focused on more specific aspects of performance especially in the area of people management and business development, answering questions on many aspects of these topics. I highly commend him as a practical motivational speaker, generous with his time and with a genuine desire and enthusiasm to deliver.
