CRAIG BELLAMY

Sport Industry Presenter

From humble beginnings in country NSW Portland, to reaching the professional high of a premiership winning player for the Canberra Raiders in 1990, this is where Craig Bellamy developed his mentality for hard work.

Craig transitioned from player (at the Canberra Raiders) through to coaching at the Brisbane Broncos as the Performance Coordinator, where he was able to assist (coach at the time) Wayne Bennett to Premierships in 1998 and 2000. 

In 2003, Craig was appointed the Melbourne Storm Head Coach and ever since that day, ‘Bellachye’ has created a culture that is envied and admired by many across multiple sporting codes. It’s a system which has helped mould the talents of former superstars in Cooper Cronk, Billy Slater and Cameron Smith and now the current crop of rising stars in Cameron Munster, Harry Grant and Ryan Papenhuyzen. 

With a winning percentage of 70%, Craig has seen plenty of success and plenty of disappointment. It is this drive and ability to reinvent, adapt, lead and overcome in the pursuit of success. Hear from Craig about how he and the team faced the adversity of the 2009 and 2010 stripping of the Premierships and how he led the club and his team to come out the other side to become 2011 Minor Premiers and then go on to win the 2012 Premiership after losing 14 of their best players.

From here, the club continues to go from strength to strength; the Club has been to four of the last five Grand Finals culminating in lifting the Provan-Summon Trophy in 2017 and 2020. 2021 has seen the Club only play 4 home games in Victoria. While living out of a suitcase for the majority of the season Craig leadership has seen the club capture another Minor Premiership and equal the longest winning streak in First Grade Rugby League history.

How to maximise the day?

This year you will be provided with the greatest amount of value that Binnacle has EVER been able to provide! This being the case, we want to ensure you are able to capitalise on the information being shared with you across the entire day – remembering that #ViSC2021 is being delivered as a Hybrid Event. To do so, we suggest the following:

  • Log in to the Virtual Platform early and make sure you are comfortable and familiar with the ViSC Platform. This will be available to ALL attendees.
  • ALL attendees should bring their fully charged device (either laptop or tablet). This will allow you to engage with teachers all over the state via a live chat feed, contribute to ongoing polls, and an opportunity to have your questions responded to by the presenter of each session (simply use the @binnacle feature within the live chat).
  • Make sure your device has a good internet connection so you don’t miss out on the information addressed in each session due to lag or dropouts.
  • If you are tuning in virtually, we encourage you to book out a room in your school and get all your school’s deliverers in one place so you can watch it together.

Meet Our Conference Hosts


In a major coup (and ViSC first!), we have secured the services of one of Australia’s most loved media personalities Ben (Dobbo) Dobbin as Master of Ceremonies for #ViSC2021. Ben’s warm personality and clever wit will be a wonderful addition to our ViSC 2021 line-up – ensuring the day runs smoothly and audience members are relaxed and engaged.

Ben will be joined by Business Coach, Facilitator, Speaker and more importantly, friend of Binnacle, Brendan Forwood who will take the reins as ‘Conference Host’ in H Block during the breakout timeslot.
