Kerri Pottharst is Australia's most decorated Indoor and Beach Volleyball player, having represented her country for an incredible 20 years. Renowned for being one of the fiercest competitors in the world of Volleyball, Kerri is now also known for being a successful speaker, MC, workshop facilitator, coach, mentor, entrepreneur, and published author.

Kerri shares her Gold Medal Excellence strategies with unforgettable tales that combine motivational messages with fun. She brings her hard-earned skills of leadership, teamwork, communication and more to Australia's corporate audiences.

Using entertaining anecdotes from her experiences as a competitor, and as a regular commentator at the Olympic Games and other sporting events, Kerri motivates and inspires her audiences to overcome their fears and self-doubts, to set goals and to push through the barriers to achieve them. An expert at reinventing herself time and time again, Kerri can relate to the constant need to deal with a changing world to stay successful and reach even greater goals.

Kerri’s unique message is as relevant to high level executives as it is to more junior teams. Her in-depth research and preparation ensures the content is relevant and specific to each audience, every time. A consummate professional and experienced presenter, she is as quick-thinking on her feet now as she was on the courts.                               

Amongst Kerri’s many skills is her innate ability to connect with the audience in a way that is warm, authentic, and most importantly, relatable. The same strategies that took her to Gold are easily adapted by audiences to achieve their own corporate and personal goals.

For many, the highlight of Kerri’s presentations is the once in a lifetime opportunity to hold her Olympic Gold medal for themselves - a unique experience to inspire everyone to become a champion in their own right.

Presentations can be concluded by inviting audiences to push their personal boundaries by walking on broken glass, in doing so reinforcing Kerri’s inspiration.

Not only is Kerri a passionate and exceptional sportswoman, her power to motivate and challenge the everyday person through her speaking engagements is outstanding. Her style and approachability is fabulous and for those that accepted the challenge of walking on glass - they have a memory to last forever.


Thanks so much for sharing your journey of "Turning Bronze into Gold. The team were definitely inspired by your personal story of achievement and really enjoyed playing beach volleyball with an Olympic gold medallist. I personally found it to be a great session and surprised myself by walking on broken glass ... twice! Then having the whole of the Westpac Risk Leadership Team walk on broken glass is something I thought would never happen.

The Westpac Group

Kerri's presentation was sensational and the combination of her talk with the glass walking worked perfectly. Her preparation and understanding of our current issues was also sensational. An incredible experience with a lasting impact.
