Danny Green Thrills Crowd at Corporate Event


    McMillan Shakespeare Group was busy preparing for their upcoming professional development event for finance brokers in Perth. They wanted to find a sports star who could deliver a speech that would engage the audience and provide an entertaining break during the evening.

    Organisers jumped on to Pickstar two months before the event to start the process of finding a sports star that would be a good fit for what they had in mind.

    McMillan Shakespeare was open-minded on the type of athlete for the role and entrusted Pickstar entirely to choose a high-profile talent that matched the budget.

    Pickstar identified Perth local, boxing veteran Danny Green, as perfect for the opportunity, and locked him in in less than 24 hours.


      Danny Green is renowned as an excellent guest speaker who can hold the attention of any crowd, and once again, he did not disappoint.

      Danny shared stories from throughout his career and had the crowd in fits of laughter.

      National Operations Manager at McMillan Shakespeare Group, Simon Hoey, was delighted with Pickstar’s choice of the athlete.

      “Danny was great, he was highly engaging and entertaining and a pleasure to have at our event,” Hoey said.

      Danny was such a hit that McMillan Shakespeare Group has already used Pickstar to book another sports star for their next event.
