General Meeting

9.15am for 9.30am, Thursday 20th June

Balwyn Baptist Church, 517 Whitehorse Road, Balwyn (Melway 46 F8)

Guest Speaker: Craig Richards, Bicycle Network


Craig Richards was a practicing lawyer for nine years, specialising in intellectual property, litigation and media. When one of his cases involved sports marketing, he changed direction and started a sponsorship consulting business.

In 2007, he joined the then Bicycle Victoria as GM Marketing and Membership. Craig sums up how he feels about his job with this quote, “To love what you do and feel that it matters, how can anything else be more fun?”

Now, as the C.E.O of Bicycle Network, Craig’s role is to provide direction, get the best out of the team, and make sure everyone is on track. Craig says the title means nothing unless he inspires the team to do things they didn’t think they could do. His end-game is to turn Australia into a nation of bike riders. Craig is a former board member of Sponsorship Australasia and the author of Structuring Effective Sponsorships, Write Right: Business Documents Made Easy and The Sponsorship Solutions Top 40.
