Mitiamo resident John Forbes was chosen to speak at the Rochester Australia Day celebrations on Saturday.
He said he was ‘‘very honoured’’ to speak at the event.
Mr Forbes is well-known in the world of sports marketing and promotions and more recently as a spokesperson for men’s health.
One of the highlights of 2012 for Mr Forbes was speaking at the men’s health night in Rochester, along with David Parkin.
He has been chair of the Victorian Police Blue Ribbon Foundation for 22 years.
Mr Forbes said the spirit of Australia was its ability to rise together out of tragedy and said Rochester did this naturally following the January 2011 flood.
He said Australia Day was a special day for him and he used it to ‘‘reflect on the good things we do and the ordinary things we do’’.
