Kevin Bartlett, or as he is better known in football circles ‘KB’, is often referred to as ‘Football Royalty’ due to his endurance in the game of AFL football.
Playing over 400 games for Richmond FC from 1965 to 1983 and kicking 778 goals, Bartlett has 5 x Premierships under his belt, a Norm Smith Medal in the 1980 Grand Final and 5 x Best and Fairest wins. After Captaining Richmond in 1979, he went on to coach Richmond from 1988 to 1991.
Selected in the Richmond Team of the Century in 2000, inducted into the Richmond Hall of Fame in 2002, Kevin Bartlett was made a Richmond Immortal in 2003.
Kevin has gained the respect of the football community, and following his retirement from AFL, has developed a successful career as a sports commentator and broadcaster on both television and radio.
A member of the AFL’s rules committee for many years until his retirement in 2014, he also served on the selection panel for the All-Australian Team and AFL Rising Star awards.
Having worked on Channel 7, ABC, Sport 927 and SEN and Fox Footy, KB is not only an inspiring speaker, but he is also a great entertainer, regaling his audiences with a story from his glory days at the Richmond FC and his time involved with AFL.
Humble, but also sometimes controversial, KB is a great addition to a footy panel, as a keynote speaker or as a host, but whatever the occasion, he will have your audience eating out of his hands!
