In addition, Jim is a senior host/ anchor for Channel 7. In 2020, Jim will play a major role in Seven’s broadcast of the Olympics and Paralympics.
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.
During his career as a sports journalist, Jim has 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 has been part of the Seven Sports team since 1992, holding senior correspondent and hosting / reporter positions in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.
Jim is a gifted orator. His enthusiasm, love of people and sport comes to the fore at every opportunity. Jim is able to tailor his presentations to each audience and his stories bring out themes as required 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.
To add to Jim’s skill set, he is a much sought after Master of Ceremonies. He has facilitated numerous panel discussions at AGM’s, corporate events, charity events and awards nights. Event organisers are always confident when Jim is on stage that he will deliver a first class, professional and time sensitive performance.
