About

The reason why I enjoy engaging with those around me in a way that is meaningful is because I love that feeling of sparking and provoking thought and action.

Obviously as an athlete much of my life has been spent training and preparing for competitive events. To learn through practical experiences has been my education. It has been a great benefit, but also a challenge because people expect certain things from an athlete. Personally I have many interests outside sport. A love of reading, writing and various concepts and theories from philosophy, human development and science. I love to explore and am intrigued by how we learn, change and improve.

My role as a consultant involves keynote presentations, workshop facilitation and coaching. Taking the learning from elite sport and high performing teams and applying it to my work has been a wonderful way to extend and expand those experiences while connecting with people to inspire and support their own development.

To spark, challenge and support learning is a focus I have and one that I enjoy engaging in. Working with others to create greater learning is essential and I am grateful of the relationships I have. There is another obvious need I have which is to support my family and it is through there love that I have continued to develop and find ways to be better.
