Warwick finds the big sticks for better connections
Warwick Jackson is currently a member of the Killarney Vale Bombers, an Australian Football Club. Prior to this team, he helped the Pennant Hills Demons win multiple Grand Finals championships. He got started in Australian Rules Football when he was a kid but stopped playing for some time to focus on university and his career. Then a coworker at his first accounting firm invited him to come play for his club team — and the rest is history.
In this episode, Warwick and I talk about how playing Aussie football has helped his business career. By playing sports for so many years, he’s learned to be open to coaching, be resilient to fight through tough times, and to have fun — celebrating “wins” is important. Now that he’s a partner, he likes to lead by example. He says, “Work is only a part of our lives. I want to make sure it adds to my team’s lives, not subtracts from it.”
Warwick Jackson is a Partner at The Fox Group Chartered Accountants near Sydney, Australia.
He received his Bachelor of Arts, Sports Management degree from the University of Western Sydney and later earned his Business Commerce, Accounting degree from Macquarie University.
