Bio

The Sports Group feels enormously privileged to provide talent management services to dual Paralympic gold medallist and Tennis champion, Dylan Alcott.

Dylan is an accomplished athlete, speaker, media commentator, brand ambassador and advocate for people living with disability. He is also the founding director of the Dylan Alcott Foundation – a charitable organisation with the core purpose of helping young Australians with disabilities gain self-esteem and respect through sport and study.

He is a three-time Paralympian, having won three gold medals in two different sports. He is also one of the most recognised and revered athletes in the Paralympic sports movement around the world. His unique ability to connect with people on a personal level has shaped his brand and elevated his profile to become one of the most commercially successful athletes in Australia. His authentic delivery, humble disposition, and good-humoured self-deprecation have been key to breaking down the barriers to talking about disability. In fact, his message is so strong that Dylan is now a sought-after keynote speaker around the world.

Dylan’s brand partners include ANZ, OCS, Tennis Australia, Toyota and Babolat.
