Business Coach & Athlete Mentor - Develop a World Class Mindset
After competing for Great Britain for nearly 10 years I hung up the trunks, retired from international swimming and began working with businesses and organisations far and wide to help inspire, mentor and coach people to embrace ‘challenge and change’ for their optimal performance. I’m passionate about people development and through coaching believe that when you put personal development first then it attracts success in abundance.
I have built a reputation as a motivational speaker over the last 12 years and I have shared my story and the lessons learnt from the journey with over 400,000 people. I now train up former Olympians and World Class Athletes to deliver inspirational talks, mentoring and coaching programmes as part of the ‘Sky Sports Living for Sport’, an inspiration programme designed to assist disengaged people from society to get back on track.
Outside of coaching and along with my wife Erica, I run a Learn to swim business – ‘Swim Buddies’ which has seen the business (located in the North East of England) grow from 7 swimmers in their first week in September 2014 through to over 900 children swimming with Swim Buddies every week.
