Case Study: Jason Akermanis Stars at Club Sportsman's Night

He no longer has the bleached blonde locks, but Aker continues to perform on the big stage (this time in a suit).

Client: Norwood Junior Football Club

Talent: Jason Akermanis, AFL Legend

Brief: Guest Speaker for Sportman's Night

The Norwood Junior Football Club held a Sportsman's Night to raise funds to increase the participation in junior girls and boys AFL games. They wanted a guest speaker who has had success at AFL level to talk about how winning isn't everything, but it is the 'icing on the cake'.

Connecting with PickStar:

Norwood JFC connected with PickStar with a specific request of an AFL premiership player. The club selected a shortlist of options from the PickStar website and the PickStar team provided advice on the best fit talent.

'Aker' was one of the shortlisted stars and and the event struck a chord with him - he was more than happy to share his story and do his bit to educate the up and coming players.

The client was very excited for the three-time premiership player and Brownlow Medallist to feature at their night.

The entire booking and payment process was managed through the PickStar system.


Jason made a great connection with kids and their parents. His behind the scenes stories about his career and lessons learned captivated the audience, and he even managed to change some pre-conceived opinions!
