Mike Brady brings a breath of fresh air to the speaking circuit with a forthright transparent account of his success and failures in business and his resilience to fight back.
Venturing away from his core music roots into unrelated fields of property development, hotels, restaurants and timber milling, Mike is the first to say the biggest lesson he has learned is to stick to the knitting.
Mike Brady has enjoyed a long career as a musician, composer, entertainer and broadcaster.
He is well known for the Aussie football anthems Up There Cazaly and One Day in September but there is a lot more to Mike than sporting anthems.
As a speaker and performer, Mike takes us on a musical journey from his days as a young migrant and his life on the road as a member of one of Australia’s top 60s bands MPD LTD, through to his time entertaining US troops in Vietnam at the height of the conflict there and to his career as an advertising writer and jingle creator responsible for some of Australia’s best loved corporate musical IDs.
In the last few years he has recorded in numerous countries including the USA and his latest album “Bloodlines, the Australian Irish Story”, which was recorded in the Republic of Ireland.
Mike talks of his foray into many commercial ventures with varying degrees of success and some mighty failures.
How he turned a multi million fortune into a negative balance – and slowly back again.
All of his solo presentations combine humour and music in an entertaining way to illustrate what has been a lifetime jam-packed with highs and lows but very little down time.
Mike travels from Melbourne.
Australian Industry & Defence Network
Please pass on my sincere thanks to Mike for the wonderful presentation and entertainment that he provided last night at the Defence Association awards.
The members were absolutely blown away by his presentation and really appreciated the time he was able to spend speaking with them during the networking breaks.
Thank you for your assistance in making it all happen so seamlessly.

Werribee Football Club
On behalf of the Werribee Football Club I would like to say what a great thrill it was to have Mike play at our last home game for 2017 which was also our last home game before our redevelopment. Mike went above and beyond writing a special Werribee song which was an absolute highlight for everyone at the lunch. His combination of football anthems and his own material from his cd’s and advertising jingles had the crowd mesmerised. The whole presentation was first class and I would highly recommend Mike for any occasion for any sporting club or organisation. He is a very talented entertainer who has that magical quality that touches people and totally engages people of all ages and backgrounds. He was totally professional in all dealings with the club and we really appreciated him taking time to pose for photos and sign autographs and talk to our supporters and sponsors after the gig. We will have him back anytime’
