James Polkinghorne
After 8 successful years at the Brisbane Lions, James made a ‘grassroots’ move home to Melbourne looking forward to taking it back a notch with Essendon in the VFL. Cracking into an MBA and gaining experience in various business environments has provided a pathway into life after footy, however in a rare twist of fate, Essendon AFL had a few team issues (to say the least) so James has had to pull on the Jumper for one more year. Knowing exactly what it takes to perform at an elite level, but still get a ‘life’ James is super skilled and experienced at sharing, communicating and mentoring ‘Balance’.
