Full Presenter Profile & Bio

Jeremy Rolleston is a dual winter Olympian, who achieved in sport, business, and life. As a role model, Jeremy demonstrates his will, determination, and perseverance, inspiring those around him to follow their dreams, be their best, and achieve. 

Believing that representing your country is the greatest honour, Jeremy has had the privilege many times. Representing Australia in both bobsleigh and rugby, his first full season saw him pilot the two-man bobsled to equal best finish in Australian bobsleigh history. Previously, he won the 2006 Challenge Cup, as well as competed in World Championships and World Cups as a pilot and brakeman. 

In 2010, Jeremy participated in the Vancouver Winter Olympics. However, his dream was broken as he crashed on a deadly track that took the life of another athlete a week earlier. 

Earlier in his sporting career, Jeremy played rugby for the Australian Legends, the Australian Universities team, and the Australian B (Legends) sevens team. An injury prevented him from representing Australia at the Hong Kong Sevens Track, however, Jeremy did not let that stops him as he went on to play in Italy for Rovigo in the European Shield and the Italian championships. 

Aside from sports, Jeremy is an intelligent and articulate man, having been awarded several scholarships for schools and universities. This has seen him forge a strong corporate career, previously working as an Executive Director of Goldman Sachs JB before training for his sporting dreams. He was also the founder and producer of The Propeller Fashion Show, one of the largest fashion shows in Sydney.

As a speaker, Jeremy is able to tailor his presentation to suit any audience. He covers the topics of daring to dream, removing limitations, motivation dedication and commitment, goal setting, life balance, and leadership.

Jeremy came to speak at a function for our operational mangers. I had read about his achievements and expected him to be quite a motivating speaker however he delivered beyond my expectations. The feedback from all of the managers, without exception, was fantastic. They were inspired by his determination and focus and impressed with how Jeremy was able to link the lessons he learnt from his success in sport to success in business.
