Cameron was appointed CEO of the famous Richmond Football Club at age 24, the youngest in the history of the game. 

For the next 25 years, he was CEO of Richmond, Melbourne and Fremantle, when those clubs were at their lowest ebb, both on and off the field. He is the second longest serving CEO in the modern game. 

Having taken on some of the sport’s most difficult and daunting challenges, Cameron established a track record of building teams and organisations, unifying groups while navigating periods of genuine adversity and complexity. 

In this episode we talk about: 

  • The question you need to ask yourself to see if you’re ready for a promotion
  • The lessons he learned from the hardest decisions you can make - firing a close personal friend
  • How to implement systems that drive performance
  • What we can learn from sport and what isn’t so transferrable
  • What we can all learn from fine art about life and work.
