As an insightful, intuitive, genuine storyteller, I have been told that I get it!
After 25 years serving as a professional athlete, broadcaster, coach and community philanthropist there is no greater compliment.
As a leadership coach, team builder and keynote speaker, I offer outside-the-box, energy-infused presentations centred on communication, collaboration and conquering.
No cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all offerings! My work is tailor made to suit your needs.
Like a Sherpa guide who prepares the route for climbers, fixes the ropes in place, and carries the necessary climbing kit up the mountain, I will set the table for you and your team.

To every coach that decrees, there is no “I” in Team, I say you are so wrong. The “I” within the team is the key to all team success regardless of the arena of competition. Ironically, I learned this from coaches/leaders who failed miserably from a leadership perspective. The “I” in Team is a great reminder to coaches/leaders that times have changed!

What is more dangerous? Catching a football over the middle of the field or disabling improvised explosive devices in the theatre of war? You would think the answer was fairly obvious. Not so after I learned about the 360 Degree Circle of Influence from a neighbour/explosives specialist!

Imagine being the key catalyst in a 4×100 Olympic gold medal relay performance but never stand on the podium. It’s the sacrifice that nobody knows about! Imagine having a gold medal but never bring it out to show anyone because it invariably requires an explanation. Often times the greatest sacrifice occurs away from the spotlight.
