An Australian Icon and Triple Olympian, Kieren Perkins is one of Australia's greatest swimmers. The 1500 metre champion won gold back to back in Barcelona and Atlanta, retiring from his exceptional career at Sydney 2000 with a silver medal performance. He is now one of Australia's most sponsored sportsmen and a member of the International Olympic Committee.
In striving to achieve his own personal goals Kieren sets an example that we can all learn from and be inspired by. Amongst his peers and the nation Kieren has forged a name for himself as someone who focuses on consistent and constant personal improvement, not just the glory of winning! Kieren's techniques for success and personal growth can be applied to all areas of life and business, and he is consequently in great demand in the corporate arena to share his story. He can lend a touch of celebrity to your next function and inspire and motivate you to win gold!
Kieren Perkins has delivered a number of keynote addresses lately for various clients and is great demand. Having been selected as one of only 4 Olympic mentors, Kieren will be travelling to London with the Olympic team and staying in the village mentoring athletes for London Olympics.
In addition, Kieren Perkins has over seven years' experience in corporate wealth management banking and has proven experience in managing corporate leadership teams, owning and consulting to a broad range of small businesses and was a contributing partner to the creation of a golden age in swimming.
Kieren incorporates his extensive knowledge and career background into his new keynote addresses "Building the right culture" and "Change Management - the will to succeed".
What most impresses me about Kieren and his approach to delivering a presentation to a group, is, that despite his successes in the pool and more broadly in business, Kieren does not revel in these triumphs, but instead, immerses himself in the desire to pass on what he knows. He knows how to be an elite performer.

On the night and on so many occasions since, in conversation with those who had attended, the stand-out feature of the conference that they recalled was Kieren's speech. Kieren moved and inspired the audience with his story, delivered in an absorbing frank and humble manner - of a child with a dream and a goal seat and sealed early on, who went on to reach the pinnacle of sport achievement in his chosen field.
