AFL coaching legend David Parkin will discuss the importance of a work/life balance in business, at a free breakfast event ahead of AMTIL’s annual general meeting (AGM) on 19 October, at Riversdale Golf Club in Mount Waverley, Victoria.

Parkin’s achievements as a football player and coach are peerless. He captained Hawthorn Football Club to its second premiership in 1971, then coached the team to a flag in 1978. He went on to coach Carlton Football Club to back-to-back Premierships in 1981-82, as well as leading them to a record-breaking number of victories in 1995, which culminated with them again becoming Premiers.

Parkin’s accomplishments have seen his talents transferred from the sporting and academic arenas to the world of business. He originally trained as a primary school teacher and has spent over two decades in teacher education. A lecturer in Sports and Exercise Science at Deakin University, he recently increased his media commitments with Foxtel’s AFL coverage as a panel member on the weekly show Fox League Teams and as a regular commentator for ABC Radio.

David will discuss “Life: The Importance of Balance in the Life of a Business Entrepreneur”.

Date: Thursday 19 October 2017

Breakfast Served: 8.00am

Presentations Commence: 8.30am

Location: Riversdale Golf Club, cnr Huntingdale & High Street Road, Mount Waverley, Vic 3149
