Goannas 2007 Sponsors 

The Tokyo Goannas are pleased to announce the National Australia Bank NAB as the major sponsor again in 2007. This continues the very positive association the Goannas had with the NAB from 2006. As Im sure many of you are aware the NAB are long-term supporters of Australian Rules Football at both the elite level, through sponsorship of the AFL, and also at the grassroots level, through the NAB Auskick program. Part of the sponsorship deal with the NAB involves the Goannas undertaking footy clinics for kids using NAB Auskick materials. The Goannas conducted the first of these at the Australian Embassy to scores of enthusiastic kids–many wearing their footy jumpers–at the Australian Embassy on Easter Sunday. The Goannas will conduct several more clinics throughout 2007. The Goannas are proud to be associated with the NAB again in 2007–get in touch with the NAB to discuss how you might take advantage of low Japanese interest rates to refinance your Australian home loan. I am also pleased to announce that Optia Partners- a leading Tokyo based executive search company has decided to become a Goannas sponsor in 2007. The association between the Tokyo Goannas and Optia Partners goes beyond a financial sponsorship arrangement as Optia Partners also provides regular paid employment to four key members of the Tokyo Goannas line-up. Optia Partners are executive search specialists and have a friendly team of experts so if you are a bi-ligual Japanese person looking to work for gaishikei companies or are a foreign company looking for staff in Japan, Optia Partners is the place to visit The Tokyo Goannas are also pleased to announce deVere & Partners as another new financial sponsor for the 2007 season. The deVere & Partners Group is the world’s largest and most respected independent offshore financial advisory firm and the Goannas are proud to be associated with the Group for the first time in 2007. The deVere & Partners Group helps expatriates worldwide select offshore investments designed to meet their specific needs for Insurance, Education, Savings, and Pension planning.
