We’ve seen and heard that others do it… Now it’s time to stop thinking about it, now it’s time to do it! Goal setting is the process of developing your pathway toward your dreams.

The Mindset of a champion

Kerri Pottharst is one of Australia’s most well known and well-loved athletes – a triple Olympian with two Olympic medals, Kerri spent 22 years competing in a sport she loves. 

She is one of Australia’s most decorated indoor and beach volleyball players and is the only Australian woman to have competed in the prestigious A1 Italian Indoor Volleyball League.

After overcoming countless challenges and potentially devastating injuries that threatened to end her sporting career, Kerri’s drive to succeed saw her take to the court to win Bronze at the Atlanta Olympics. But it was her unparalleled strength, focus and determination that allowed her to transform her Bronze into Gold on Bondi Beach at the Sydney 2000 Olympics, in an overwhelming demonstration of the power of courage, persistence and personal belief. 

 

Since retiring from national and international competition in 2005, Kerri now divides her time between her three passions – her family, coaching elite-level volleyball, and inspiring people from all walks of life to achieve excellence through her keynote presentations andmotivational workshops. 

 

Working now with a range of businesses, imparting knowledge to executives, managers and staff about the disciplines she learned from elite sport, and how they can be applied to business.. Her inspirational Goal Setting workshops, captivating Keynote Presentations and exciting Corporate Team Building events will challenge your beliefs, stretch your boundaries and push you beyond your comfort zone. You will discover the secrets to goal-setting success, develop invaluable communication strategies and learn new skills that will allow you to achieve your full potential – and they’re also a whole lot of fun!
