Hire with Confidence: Aus F1 Board Member John O'Rourke (PART 1)
Show Notes Chapter Markers

In the first of two parts, we speak to Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC) Director John O'Rourke to take a behind the scenes look at this weekend's F1 event.

John explains the impact the event has on our economy through a labour hire lens in terms of the jobs it produces and the businesses it involves. He also touches on the rise in their female audience and how Netflix's Drive to Survive documentary series has driven a never before seen appetite for the sport.

As the Founder and Chairman at Plenary Group, about to celebrate 20 years in business, John takes us back to how it all started and what he has been able to learn from Plenary which is now helping the AGPC. John's deep knowledge of the infrastructure landscape in Australia and across the globe makes for a fascinating listen.  He provides tips for small and big businesses on how to position themselves for work on upcoming projects.

In part two (dropping soon), we look into the fabric of the Richmond Football Club and what is was like to be part of the organisational change at Tigerland before three premiership became a reality and what John's immediate priorities are as the new President.
