Andrew Phillips – Co-Founder of Camp Australia

It gives me great pleasure to welcome Andrew Phillips to this week’s Great Australian stories in the Making.

Andrew was destined to have a very promising career in the world of AFL in the 80’s. Sadly a degenerative back condition could not stand the rigors of AFL football and his career was cut short.

The former Carlton footballer turned to the world of business and with the same grit, determination and prowess learnt on the field then applied in the board room.

He has spent a lifetime working to create educational opportunities for children from disadvantaged backgrounds, and is now running The Phillips Brothers Foundation.

‘Standards not Targets’

EXTRACTS:
• Employing great people is the highest priority.
• No one gets a start on staff in Melbourne unless their work ethic meets very lofty standards.
• Assistant coaches are expected to review hours and hours of game and training vision to give Bellamy all the information his hungry rugby league brain can absorb.
• Long days on the field and in the office are common.
• Coaching masters … Melbourne Storm’s Craig Bellamy (left) and Brisbane Broncos’ Wayne Bennett. Photo: AAP
• The Storm approach to player recruitment and retention is very similar.
• “Hard work will always beat talent when talent doesn’t work hard” is and old saying, but it’s a habit in Melbourne.
• No team trains harder and you either buy in or bugger off.
• After people comes process; every individual is a cog in a wheel.
• You’ve got a role, you’re expected to do that role extremely well, and each role compliments the next.
• Plan, train, play, review, repeat and over time refine.
