What you'll do
There are moments in life that define you. When we chat, you will get to hear about my athletic career, from getting into athletics, to winning European, Commonwealth and World Gold medals AND that fateful day in Barcelona where in the Semi-final, I pulled my hamstring and was helped over the line by my father. I will also share what happened after that event, including being told that I would never compete for my country again, yet going on to play Basketball for my country after my athletic career, becoming a National champion racing motorbikes and kickboxing at the age of 47, and more. I will share some of my secrets and techniques I learned from the world of sport but still use in my business and personal life. Defining moments can determine who you are, and also how you get up and keep going. Please be ready to ask questions as this will be a thought provoking, interactive session that could put you on your path to success!

As a former World, European, Commonwealth Champion and Olympic athlete, I have spent the last 23 years traveling the world sharing my stories as a motivational and inspirational speaker, business performance coach, mentor and event host. I have addressed over a million people live and online, sharing stories from winning the World championships to pulling my hamstring in the 1992 Olympic games in Barcelona which is an image that has now been viewed online well over 300 million times and was voted the third most memorable Olympic moment by NBC. Through these stories and others I am able to share with people the secret to success through my unique prospective and give guidance to help you on your own path to success.
What to bring
I suggest bringing a note pad and pen so you can make notes for future use.

My recommendation if possible would be to view on a computer but if you only have a phone then this will work well also. I would suggest to come armed with a question or two but I am sure as the session moves on some questions will come to mind!
