Former Brisbane Bronco, MC and Keynote Speaker
Since retiring from a career in rugby league, Shane Webcke now spends time now as a farmer, family man, businessman, author, news presenter, safety ambassador, guest speaker and host.
During Shane’s football career, he represented Queensland on twenty four occasions and represented Australia in twenty six tests. In that time, he only ever played for the Brisbane Broncos for some twelve years and was privileged to be named Daly M Prop of the Year three times.
Shane has taken what he learned about commitment and work ethic from the farm as a young fella to the football field as a player and back to farming in regional Queensland. He now balances family life with his wife and three children with his other job in Brisbane, behind the news desk at Seven.
In 1994, when Shane was just 18 years old, his father was killed in a Queensland workplace incident. He had only just started his football career under the guidance of Wayne Bennett when he received the news that his world had changed forever. This led him to the role as a safety ambassador and he shares the story of his father in the hope it will motivate others to put safety first, always.
In 2006, Shane released his autobiography ‘Warhorse’ and since then has shared his knowledge, passion and experience with many audiences across Queensland and Australia as a keynote speaker, guest speaker, MC, panelist and host.
