Elite Performance Partners continue to work with organisations across the world of sport to provide a service that delivers the bigger picture. By working closely with other specialist organisations and individuals across the industry like in this past month, we help our clients to find the right leaders essential to their success and assist them with achieving a competitive advantage.

These are the recent news highlights from our business.

Learning from Experts in High Performance and Culture

May started with the third and final part of our Leadership Forum series hosted in partnership with Miramar Global Executive Search. The exclusive event focused on leadership, high performance and the importance of culture. We were lucky to be joined by Owen Eastwood, a world leading performance culture expert and acclaimed former South African fast bowler, Morne Morkel.

Owen shared insight on his influential ‘vision driven’ approach for high performing teams and Morne explained how the South African cricket team put Owen’s work into practice.

Elite Performance Partners share the same philosophy as Owen and believe the information being discussed about team culture and environment is a key to success in creating a competitive advantage in team sports.
