From the Olympic Stage of Beach Volleyball to the corporate and conference stages on three continents, Annette Lynch is a Game Changer.
Her self-motivation, drive and curiosity found a way to not only realize a 25-year dream of playing for her home country Australia in the 2000 Olympics, but also to forge a new career beyond sport.
The game change was not easy. A fierce competitor on the court and even with a University degree in Physiotherapy, she was not fully prepared for retirement! She retired 3 times over 6 years before she took charge to change her Game and change her life.
Annette became a certified Master Results Coach, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Practitioner and Trainer and went on to write about her experience and studies in “Success Beyond Sport – How to Retire From Sport and Keep Winning.” Her 8-step program provides the foundation to create success in business and life.
Previously a trainer and workshop leader for several leading local and international organizations, Annette has spoken to varied audiences that have included the Institute for Athletes in Retirement and Transition Conference; The Pro-Athlete Business Group Conference; Chaminade University Hawaii and the Australian Drilling Safety Conference.
Annette has mentored professional athletes preparing for retirement, and entrepreneurs, sharing her passion, her mindset and her techniques for life-long achievement.
Living in Maui, Hawaii with her husband and pets, Annette continues to change her game now working with a local non-profit economic development board to lead and inspire innovation in the community.
