2021 Keynote Speaker: Cody Royle

Cody Royle is a standout voice on leadership, culture, and organizational dynamics. Currently, he serves as head coach of AFL Team Canada, the men’s national program for Australian Rules football.


Cody is the author of the influential sports-business book Where Others Won’t, which investigates how forward-thinking teams use talent strategies to create competitive advantage. Influential sports leaders like Buffalo Sabres head coach Ralph Krueger, and former Denver Broncos general manager Ted Sundquist agreed to be interviewed for the book and feature prominently.

The success of Where Others Won’t spawned a podcast which has reached the top 100 in four countries and was nominated for a Podcast Award in 2019. To date, the show has featured interviews with guests such as Detroit Pistons legend Joe Dumars, Netflix’s former VP of HR Patty McCord, three-time New York Times bestselling author Adam Grant, and former New England Patriots executive Michael Lombardi. 

A native of Melbourne, Australia, Cody resides in Toronto, Canada with his wife.
