#30 David Hill – Australian business leader and author

From being Managing Director of the ABC to the head of Soccer Australia and now a multi-book author, the one common denominator is the attitude that underpins this very affable man. David Hill was born into an impoverished English family and shipped to Australia without his mother when he was just 12, and against considerable odds one of Australia’s most influential businessmen and sports administrators. He is now a prolific author and has just released his eighth book – The Fair and the Foul – which details the colourful 150-year history of Australian sport. He chats to Nicole about opportunity, enthusiasm and why he’s so infatuated with Australia’s approach to sport.
