A Passion for Life and Sport - Jim Wilson is a professional communicator.
Jim left the Seven Network after 20 years in mid 2020 to join Radio 2GB.  He had presented sport for Sydney’s Seven News and had been the National Sports Editor for the Seven Network, and been a senior host/ anchor for 7.  Jim moved to 2GB and for two years he brought to Sydney's drive time the all the news... current affairs, sport, lifestyle and he highlighted the social fabric of Sydney.  In late 2022 Jim moved on from 2GB and is now concentrating on setting up his own communications company with his wife, TV presenter Chris Bath.  
A self-described “sports nut”, Jim grew up on Queensland’s Gold Coast and has worked as a journalist for more than 30 years, starting as a cadet at Brisbane’s Courier Mail.  In this time he covered and hosted some of the most significant sporting events of recent times including eight Olympic Games, Paralympic Games, the British Open golf, South African and West Indian cricket tours, World Cup soccer, the NRL State of Origin series, AFL Grand Finals and most recently hosting the Big Bash League.
Jim is a gifted orator. His enthusiasm, love of people and sport comes to the fore at every opportunity. His business presentations are tailored to each audience. His stories bring out themes as required by either the client or the conference objectives. His topics can include messages relating to goal setting, resilience, teamwork, performing under pressure and change management. All his sporting anecdotes will resonate in the business environment.  Jim’s guest speaking roles often go beyond sport and he’s a regular keynote speaker at business conferences.  Jim’s after dinner speeches are loaded with all the humorous anecdotes you would expect of a sporting journalist.
He is a much sought after Master of Ceremoniesm and has facilitated numerous panel discussions at AGM’s, corporate events, charity events and awards nights.  Jim’s superior communication skills see him much in demand in the specialist areas of media and presentation training. He has 20 years’ experience of training corporate clients from one-on-one training with Chairs, CEOs, to groups of 10-20.
Jim has been appointed an ambassador to two football clubs from different codes. In Melbourne, the Carlton Football Club and the Titans Rugby League Club on the Gold Coast.  He is a passionate supporter of several charities committed to cancer research. Jim lost his youngest son, Sam, to brain cancer in 2010 when he was just six years old. He is an ambassador for Cancer Council NSW.


Our organisation has had a relationship with Jim for around 10 years. The fact that it has endured this long and has involved many different corporate events and occasions says so much about how highly we regard him. A true professional who prepares thoroughly and delivers consistently on each occasion. A very genuine person with an easy-going nature makes him a pleasure to work with and be around. He is particularly generous with his time and has gone above and beyond on several occasions for us. We look forward to our relationship with Jim continuing and I look forward to our next opportunity of working with him.

Jim is a class act on multiple dimensions - they do not come any better.
