Brennon is a former Olympic Gymnast, Journalism graduate, husband and Dad of 4 children. He represented Australia at two Olympic games, 3 Commonwealth Games and was a multiple gold medal winner at Commonwealth Games. Brennon certainly takes that extra spectacular step to deliver a truly memorable experience. The element of surprise is an exciting part of Brennon's presentations. An Olympic pommel horse is unveiled and his suit and tie come off to reveal his Olympic Competition uniform. Throughout his presentation Brennon demonstrates skills on the pommel horse to reinforce his inspiring messages on teamwork, building success on strong foundations and his "15 minute" secret to success! The presentation finishes on a high with Brennon performing his 9.9 Gold Medal winning routine - an incredible accomplishment considering he is now in his 40's and first performed the routine as an 18 year old! His ability to still do this performance proves the effectiveness of his motivational messages and are a memorable and effective vehicle to reinforce positive messages. The live demonstration provides a "wow" factor ensuring the presentation is both memorable, and effective in inspiring positive change.

He also adds enormous value to any session where you are looking for a speaker "a bit outside the square" to make a positive, memorable and lasting impact on delegates.

Brennon’s presentation… touching on the comical as well as the motivational, combined with the integration of the pommel horse demonstration, gave him a powerful edge on the attention of the audience… and I would have to say that favorable feedback has by far exceeded any other guest speaker we have had.
