Wayne Pearce is a true Aussie hero. From a battling family in Sydney's Balmain, Wayne lost his father when he was fourteen. Crippling injuries, illnesses and the serious disappointments handed to him by officialdom, jolted the career in football that he began to carve as a teenager. With the wonderful determination and great fighting spirit for which he is renowned, "Junior" beat them all and became the most admired player in rugby league. Wayne's leadership and team building skills have been widely acknowledged in the sporting community, and he was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia for services to Rugby League and the community in 1988.

He is a devoted family man who, aside from his illustrious career in rugby league, also holds a science degree, was a former high school teacher, a successful sporting commentator for the Channel 10 Network and Fox Sports and has his own rock band!

While Wayne enjoys his current involvement in sport as the new Rugby League Commissioner, his new focus is on corporate speaking, corporate team building, personal development and “team excellence” programs. His programs focus on increasing productivity in business by nurturing teamwork and boosting personal motivation levels.

Wayne is a confident speaker, polished by his media exposure through television and radio. He has much to offer the corporate conference organiser who is looking for a prominent sporting personality to inject interest, humour and hard won success stories into the conference agenda. He is also a sought after, after dinner speaker, providing and entertaining and humorous insight into life as a professional athlete.
