Adam Goodes

Discover the remarkable journey of Adam Goodes, from celebrated athlete to advocate for Indigenous Australians, celebrated for his resilience, optimism, and inspirational leadership. As a proud Adnyamathanha man, Adam's unwavering dedication to his community shines through his numerous initiatives, including co-founding The Goodes-O'Loughlin Foundation in 2009, dedicated to enhancing Indigenous children's educational opportunities.

With an illustrious AFL career under his belt, Adam's achievements speak volumes – a dual AFL Brownlow Medallist and premiership player for the Sydney Swans, a four-time All-Australian, and a member of the Indigenous Team of the Century. Adam's legacy in Australian Football League history is unparalleled, marked by his retirement in 2015 as the Swans' games record holder and one of the sport's most decorated players.

Yet, Adam's influence transcends sports; he actively advises organisations on their Reconciliation Action Plans, and his advocacy against racism earned him the title of Australian of the Year in 2014. He sits on the board of the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation and is chairman of the Support Through Australian National Disasters (S.T.A.N.D) program, a relief initiative founded by Woolworths and the Salvation Army. He is also an ambassador for many prominent brands including Toyota, David Jones, Qantas, Woolworths and Wanderlust.

As a co-author of the Welcome To Our Country picture book series, Adam fosters cultural understanding and inclusivity, furthering his mission of positive change and Indigenous empowerment.

Through his own journey of self-discovery and resilience, Adam offers invaluable lessons on courage, perseverance, and the importance of listening to one's inner voice. Join Adam as he inspires you to embrace change, harness your inner strength, and embark on a path of personal and professional fulfilment.
