Ant is an international keynote speaker on positive risk taking in business. For over a decade, he’s developed the leaders of Blue Chip companies teaching mental toughness to help them build courage, perform under pressure and deliver results.
Ant worked as a Sport Psychologist coaching big wave surfers, motoGP riders, rock climbers and other risk takers on how to break through mental barriers when he realised, according to him, he was a fraud. He hadn’t done anything risky in his life. He wanted to know if anyone could learn how to become a risk taker. So Ant decided to take up freediving and learn first hand how to perform under pressure.
Now one of the deepest men in the world, Ant has pushed through both physical and mental barriers to hold his breath for over 8 minutes, dive to -100m and to swim 240m on one breath. In short, he knows how to overcome some of the most demanding and uncomfortable challenges a person can face. Ant teaches others how to “lean into discomfort” and take positive, calculated risk.
