Former AFL player agent Ricky Nixon has revealed a desire to ''climb the next mountain'', having relaunched his sports agency, Flying Start International.

Nixon has this week changed his title on business networking site LinkedIn to managing director, Flying Start International Pty Ltd.

He and former Richmond football operations boss Craig Cameron met last month with Ian Prendergast, the AFL Players Association's general manager and chairman of the Agent Accreditation Board.

It's understood Nixon has not sought to reclaim his accreditation. If he was to, the agents' board would have to deliberate whether he should be welcomed back into the fold. There has been speculation Nixon would partner with Cameron but Cameron has denied this. There are also suggestions a Nixon family member could seek accreditation.

But should he able to attract clientele, Nixon could rejoin the AFL industry even if he was personally unsuccessful in reclaiming accreditation. Nixon could still supervise an employee who can broker deals with clubs, but would be unable to sign off on the actual contract.

He claimed on Facebook this week negotiating player contracts was not part of his plan. ''My ban finished a year ago and the only interest I have in management is training young people up,'' he said.

One of Nixon's key objectives is to launch his online sports agent course, where beginners are charged $800. He is also hoping to make a success of Super Agent - a fantasy sports agent game.

He has attempted to stay afloat financially and revive his image in a variety of ways after a series of scandals in recent years, beginning with the damaging St Kilda schoolgirl controversy.

This led to him being stripped of his agent's accreditation in 2011 and receiving a two-year ban for having an inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old girl.

A year later, he pleaded guilty to assault charges against his former fiancee Tegan Gould and attempting to flee the police.

On LinkedIn, Nixon says his aim now is to ''climb the next mountain, take in the view but spend a lot more time at the top breathing in the air this time''.

When Nixon lost his accreditation, Flying Start was closed and his clients were sold to Phoenix Management, a company led by former Essendon star Scott Lucas and agent Winston Rous.

Three of Nixon's high-profile clients at the time Nick Riewoldt, Jack Riewoldt and Dustin Martin later sought new management. Nixon, 50, retained the rights to the Flying Start brand. His strength remains his knowledge of the AFL industry, in which he had been one of the most influential agents through the 1990s when he established Club 10 and had the likes of Wayne Carey, Gary Ablett snr and Jason Dunstall on his books.

He lists Flying Start as a management, consultancy and future technologies business.

In a bid to keep himself busy last year, Nixon, who did not return calls on Wednesday, even turned to having his own stand-up comedy routine called ''Chicken Train''.
