My speech shares what the characteristics of high performance teams are, but I often get asked, "Well that's great, how do we begin to develop them in our team?" I specialise in offering workshops and programmes of ongoing facilitation for teams in sport, the board room in business or in education to help you unlock potential in your leaders.


It may surprise you to hear but all elite athletes have major setbacks. All of them! Even the ones that turn up time and time again and win. Of course sports teams have ups and downs to manage too. We know that the best athletes and teams have resilience - but did you know that the actions, habits and behaviours that enable resilience can all be learned. Especially in the current COVID pandemic, teams are looking to learn how the best weather the ups and downs and are able to kick on for tomorrow. Let me know if I can help you create resilience in your team.

High-performance habits

There are untapped resources in you and your team. It's funny to think that often we're running on half our full potential, but research shows it to be true. I have worked with numerous teams and executives to understand, realise and embrace habits that enhance physical, emotional and mental performance. We're not talking 'bro science', gadgets and gizmos that follow the trends of pop culture or the latest influencer. We've been using cutting edge appliance of science to help professionals like you to up your game. Book a team session or individual consultation to find out more.

"I'm currently delivering speeches to corporate, conference keynote and education, with clients including Google, Elastic, Ernst & Young, Sky Broadcasting, Phillips, AT Kearney, sharing the insights gained from spending the last 25 years applying science to the pursuit of high performance.

Before setting up Supporting Champions I was the Director of Science at the British Olympic Association and English Institute of Sport, leading a team of 200 scientists in support of Team GB and Paralympics GB.

I've supported over 1000 athletes, of which over 200 have achieved World or Olympic medal success, including some of the world’s greatest athletes such as Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill, Sir Steve Redgrave and James Cracknell and advise some of the top business executives on individual and team performance.

I wrote about many of my experiences supporting these great athletes in one of my books ‘How to Support a Champion: The art of applying science to the elite athlete’, highlighting the need for us all to learn and adapt to reach our maximum potential."
