Jenn Morris

Dual Olympic gold medallist, former Hockeyroos Captain and business woman

Perth and livestream I Friday 11 March 2022

Dual Olympic gold medallist Jenn Morris represented Australia in hockey from 1991 to 2000, playing 150 games for her country and scoring 86 goals. She was one of the original players from the Ric Charlesworth era which remained undefeated in major tournaments for almost a decade. Jenn was one of the senior members of the team and shared the captaincy of the Hockeyroos during her entire career.

A naturally charismatic communicator, Jenn draws on the potent parallels between sport and business in order to reveal the common values and attitudes required for success. She regularly addresses events for corporate clients such as ANZ Bank, Commonwealth Bank, AMP, Westpac, Automotive Holdings Group – Holden Australia, Financial Planners’ Association of W.A., AON Health Risk Insurance Services and many others.

After retiring from international sport Jenn was a Partner in the Consulting Division of international professional services firm Deloitte, specialising in complex large-scale business transformation programs and strategy development for many years until November, 2016  when she joined the board of directors of Fortescue Metals Group (FMG).

She was described by Ric Charlesworth in his book The Coach - Managing for Success as the "best player in the world in her position, and also the most resilient", a resiliency underpinned by her determination to make the Olympic team in 2000 after spending two and a half years on the injured list following complications arising from a knee reconstruction. This was Jenn's second knee re-construction, her first in 1991 effectively ruling her out of the Barcelona Olympics the following year.

Jenn Morris sealed the gold medal at the Sydney Olympics for Australia in great style, scoring the final goal to claim victory in what was her 150th and final game of her distinguished career.

Jenn is former Chairperson of Healthway WA (Western Australian Government Health Promotion Authority), and was a board member of Western Australian Institute of Sport for ten years. She was also on the board of Fremantle Football Club (Fremantle Dockers) for several years and is a Commissioner with the Australian Sports Commission.

Jenn holds a Bachelor of Arts with majors in Psychology and Journalism from Curtin University of WA where she then pursued a Master of Business Administration.
