Former Australian Cricketer & McGrath Foundation President

Glenn McGrath has achieved many milestones throughout his illustrious cricket career and through his role as President of the McGrath Foundation.

Glenn and his late wife Jane commenced The McGrath Foundation to address the chronic shortage of Breast Care Nurses throughout Australia particularly in Rural and Regional Australia. The foundation currently has over 100 McGrath Breast Care Nurses throughout Australia and has helped change the lives of Australian women fighting breast cancer.

McGrath’s success to date has seen him become one of Australia’s most popular and well respected athletes. His personal courage and on field success has seen him constantly sought after by the media and he is one of the most iconic faces in Australia today. In 2009 and 2010 he was named as one of Australia’s most trusted people.

McGrath has taken more wickets than any other Australian bowler in One Day Internationals and is currently fifth on the all time Test Match wicket list. Glenn was the first Australian bowler to play in 200 One‐Day Internationals and the first Australian Fast Bowler to play in 100 Test matches.

Glenn announced his retirement from Test cricket at the end of 2006. His Test career came to an end after the 5th Ashes test in Sydney, while the 2007 World Cup marked the end of his One‐Day career.

In 2008 Glenn was named as a member of the Order of Australia for ‘service to cricket as a player’ and later that year he was the recipient of the NSW Australian of the Year Award in recognition of his dedication to the McGrath Foundation and his contribution to cricket.

Glenn also played in the Indian Premier League Twenty20 Tournament for the Delhi Daredevils in 2008 and 2009.


Glenn’s presentation was amazing. Exactly what we needed him to present on and extremely engaging presentation. Glenn also spent several hours at our exhibition after his presentation speaking with attendees and taking photos – overall could not have been more impressed.
