Bio

Belinda Jane Clark AO, regarded as one of the greatest female cricketers ever, is the founder of The Leadership Playground since Dec 2020. She is also an Ambassador for Athletes for Hope Australia.

Clark has extensive cricket management experience, having served Cricket Australia for over 20 years in different roles. She was the Executive General Manager of Community Cricket for Cricket Australia for 2 years, while also serving the same as a Senior Manager of Team Performance for almost 12 years.

Clark is a leader in the Australian sports industry more broadly. She was an elite cricketer, captaining the Australian Women’s Team for 11 years from 1994 to 2005, during which she also served Women’s Cricket Australia as the Chief Executive Officer from Sep 2000 to Jun 2001.

Clark was the first player (male or female) to score a double century in an ODI match, when she made unbeaten 229 against Denmark in Mumbai in 1997. A year later she was named Wisden Australia Cricket of the year.

In 2018, Clark received the AO for distinguished service to cricket as a player, captain and administrator through sport for national and international professional councils and as a role model for young sportswomen.

For her sporting records, skills and leadership, Clark was inducted into the Sport Australia Cricket Hall of Fame and ICC Hall of Fame in 2011 and the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame in 2014.

Clark is a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. She did the Advanced Management Program in Management from Harvard Business School in 2015.
