Outstanding rugby athlete with vast international experience.


In a world of professional sport, few athletes stand out with the longevity and experience of Frano Botica.

Frano played top level rugby for over 18 years. He is one of the few athletes who has worn four Black Jerseys, having played for the New Zealand Sevens, All Blacks, New Zealand Maoris and Kiwis (rugby league). He has always relished the challenge of producing his best possible effort on every occasion.

As a former captain he also has exceptional leadership skills, making him an excellent group facilitator and negotiator. Frano’s long career at the elite level of sport has complemented his on going business career, giving him the ability to operate effectively with a wide range of groups and organisations.

Frano was great. He interacted well with the guests and staff throughout the evening and went out of his way to personally congratulate the winners. He also engaged well with the attendees through his key note speech, adapting a number of stories to put across important messages to the mainly youthful crowd. Highly recommend, a great speaker
