A decade-long search, which included two masters degrees, lead Paddy to eventually discover what he was looking for – modern-day best-practice in leading sports performance.
His early reward was to have the majority of sports administrators and coaches disregard his work, as they held onto more traditional methods.
Being told “that won’t work” served to motivate Paddy to the point where he is currently recognised as one of the most innovative coaches in the world.
Paddy was recently appointed as a Professor of Practice at Deakin University’s Business School (Australia), is currently mental coach to professional athletes from multiple sporting codes, leadership coach to business executives and teams, a professional speaker and is Head Coach in four of the world's premier T20 cricket tournaments, in India (IPL), Australia (BBL), Dubai (PSL) and South Africa (T20 GL).
Paddy claims he does all this to support his surfing, stand-up paddling and fishing habits.
