Swim Your Own Race

  • Life is like swimming. It requires certain key elements to attain success, and as an individual sport, it can often get very lonely – a lot of sacrifice, focus and perseverance are required to make it to the top.
  • Speaker Penny Heyns offers this keynote to shed light on what it takes to get to the top in one of the most demanding sporting disciplines of the world, how to stay there and how these principles relate and apply to your business – and life in general. Penny will inspire you to believe in your own potential and show you how to turn failure into victory, and perhaps most importantly, to pursue personal excellence.

In the Zone

  • If you have ever taken an interest in sport, you are probably familiar with the idea of operating or being in the Zone. As athletes perform at the highest level, we often see them in the Zone, but we don’t see ‘in the making’.
  • This presentation will unveil the Champion mindset, the habits and routines guiding you to your Zone. Speaker Penny Heyns packed this keynote with neuroscientific data and built the talk around her own experiences to empower you to become a Champion in your world as you learn how to get into ‘The Zone’.
