He's seen athletes through good times and bad, victory and meltdown, triumph euphoria and heart-breaking despair.

He's brought athletes back from career-threatening injury, rebuilt teams that were crumbling under pressure, and mentored his junior athletes through the challenges of growing up.

He has worked across a wide range of sports and sporting contexts including:

  • Six Olympic campaigns with athletes and coaches in sailing and rowing

Drawing on years of experience in coaching individuals and teams in their quest for excellence Mick has developed the Mynds Performance Application.

I just wanted to touch base and thank you again for your inspiring presentation yesterday at the Sydney Police Station. Staff are still talking about it which is a great sign of how it resonated personally with them all. Stay well and look forward to seeing you on the next occasion.

I learnt how to manage my time by prioritising what needed to be done. Learning how to make better time based decisions ultimately helped me focus and allowed me to concentrate on the race ahead. In the end I found I actually had more time to think!

Mick has developed his presentations to service some of the academy’s corporate clients who have included the Catholic Union and Online Pumps who have had team building workshops at the Sydney Academy of Sport.

Through Mick’s help I discovered ways to remain positive and get the most out of every situation, my confidence and self-esteem strengthened and I finally felt I had a support network around me so I could achieve the results I’d aimed for. Rarely will a sporting coach be able to match his or her athlete on the field but, of course, that is not their job: a coach adds value by assessing their athlete, enhancing their talents and finding ways to overcome their weaknesses. An exceptional coach will continually innovate, will look outside the traditions and usual practices of any one sport to help their athlete achieve more than they thought was possible.

Technical Director

Really appreciate your time last week and just want to thank you again. From a personal note, I was genuinely impressed with your presentation. You have an ability to be able to relate to police, particularly when you related examples back to policing. The feedback I have received from my colleagues is that everyone took away some key messages and were equally impressed with your method of delivery.

Using the Mynd’s Performance application, coupled with one-on-one training with Mick left me feeling fantastic and mentally equipped to tackle anything that came my way. The event was a positive one and as a team the K1, Australian Women’s Match Racing Team achieved all the aims we had set in place finishing 5th overall from 24 teams and qualifying our country for the 2012 Olympics.

We've had so many positive comments from the morning in reference to your talk. I think everybody would have been thinking about their short and long breaths all afternoon! On behalf of the PBL board, thank you again for spending the morning with us and for making such a great impact.
