Australian Rugby Legend, Inspiring Speaker, MC and Moderator
Tim Horan is possibly the greatest centre Rugby Union has seen. With a 12 year career with the Wallabies, Tim earned his first gold jersey as a teenager against the All Blacks in 1989. Two years later at the 1991 World Cup, Tim was crucial to the Wallabies success, most notably when he gobbled up and scored from David Campese’s memorable over-the-shoulder, no-look pass in the semi-final against New Zealand. No try has been given as much replay time since.
In 1994, Tim suffered a potentially career ending knee injury. Doctors told him he was unlikely to play rugby again. Tim was out of the game for 12 months and made a remarkable comeback at the 1995 Rugby World Cup.
In 1999, Tim became one of only six players to have one two Rugby World Cup medals, by guiding Australia to it’s second World Cup victory. Tim also won a Year’s supply of Guiness for scoring the fast try in the tournament.
Tim Horan talks about:
- Leadership – Taking The Gap
- High Performance
- Coming Back From Adversity
Tim MC’d our Brisbane West Airport (Toowoomba) open day and did a fantastic job. We had over 28,000 people on the day and Tim engaged them over a six-hour period in a professional and relaxed way. I would certainly recommend Tim to host or MC at any small or large event.

Tim Horan… as MC… created just the right mood that we wanted, communicating our key Etihad information while still keeping the event relaxed and fun.
We engaged our Sport Australia Hall of Fame member, Tim Horan AM, to take on the role of MC at our recent ‘Inspire our Nation’ – an exclusive event, which we host in partnership with our major sponsor, Etihad Airways. Known as one of Australia’s best-ever rugby players, it is clear that the world-class skills Tim had as an athlete have translated incredibly well into his off the field media and hosting work. Tim did a stellar job, he is highly professional and a well-rounded MC who injects a sense of vibrancy into the proceedings and importantly, was a pleasure to deal with. His ability to engage the guests was first class and he did an outstanding job in interviewing our special guest panel members, Dawn Fraser AO MBE; Ian Healy and Wally Lewis AM. If you are looking for a professional, knowledgeable and highly entertaining MC, we would recommend Tim Horan AM.
