Mike McKay is one of the founding crew members of the Oarsome Foursome - four Melbourne rowers who took on and defeated the best in the world.

McKay together with James Tomkins, Nick Green and Andrew Cooper, took the rowing world by storm in the early 1990's earning the "Oarsome" name and reputation with convincing victories in the 1990 and 1991 World Championships, and the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games.

In March 1997, the Foursome announced their intention to row in front of a home crowd at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, aiming to win a third successive Olympic title.

With members of the Oarsome Foursome retiring, Mike returned to the Men's Eight where he first started his Olympic career and qualified for Sydney 2000.

Mike was able to instill the Oarsome Foursome's winning attitude into the Australian men's eight. The crew produced an outstanding effort in the Olympic final to finish second.

McKay is also a high sought after public speaker, and covers a vast array of topics including success, teamwork, goal-setting, ownership, passion and enthusiasm, adversity, and culture change among many others.

He has also presented at a large number of conferences before domestic and international audiences, ranging small groups of senior management to 15,000 people. He is also regularly seen on Channel Seven's Sportsworld program, and is a highly respected analytical commentator.
