Treat yourself as an Olympian

Being a founder CEO is not an ordinary job. The potential upside is huge. The challenges are never-ending. The pressure is relentless.

Elite athletes don’t succeed alone. They hire former-athletes as coaches who can help them win. That’s why CEOs hire me: to reshape their role, level up their leadership, and maximise their company’s potential.
