I have been fortunate to work with some of the most successful companies and individuals throughout Australia, New Zealand and around the world over the course of my nearly 20 years working in the legal profession.
When climbing, I apply my knowledge and skills in business to help me tackle the mountains: leadership, decision-making, teamwork and identification of risk, managing it and minimizing it. In business, climbing knowledge and skills come into play: focus, perseverance, courage, overcoming obstacles, doing it when mentally and physically you might think you can’t.
Whether in business or climbing, its not surprising to find the parallels of peak performance, reaching or not reaching summits, creating personal and team challenges, doing what others say cannot be done, getting the best out of yourself and others, and leading from the front.
I am often invited to present at and engage with participants at business conferences, corporate entities, forums, clubs, schools and for private occasions – even being an MC at a wedding! Working together with my clients to meet their needs, I make sure the presentations are inspiring, motivating, poignant, relevant and enjoyable.
Some of the clients and teams I have presented to over the years include:
- Westpac, Caltex
- Telstra, Safe Work Australia
- Australian Institute of Sport (Olympic Coaches)
- London Olympics 2012 – coaches and athletes (NSWIS)
- 100 (approximate) small business owners (NSW)
- NSW Master Mariners Association
- Save the Children Fund (NZ)
- Probus and other clubs
- Schools (Australia & NZ)
