The man Australian Open tennis champion Ash Barty credits with helping her become the world’s number one tennis player will visit Gippsland Grammar on May 5 for a one-off public event.
Ben Crowe from Mojo Crowe has worked with some of the world’s most famous sports stars such as Andre Agassi, Cathy Freeman and 2022 Australian of the Year Dylan Alcott but he became a household name in January when Barty won the Australian Open and credited the elite mindset coach for helping her achieve her dream.
Now Gippslanders can hear Crowe’s strategies for success when he presents his renowned ‘Perspective Talk’ at Gippsland Grammar’s Bairnsdale Campus on Thursday May 5 at 6.30pm.
The event is a huge coup for East Gippsland and has come to fruition because of Crowe’s generosity and desire to help a region that has suffered over the past few years with drought, bushfires and COVID-19 pandemic.
Gippsland Grammar’s Head of Bairnsdale Campus Virginia Evans admitted they had some inside help to secure a place in Crowe’s busy speaking schedule.
“One of our teachers Libby Crowe is Ben’s sister-in-law,” Mrs Evans admits. “Libby is also the teacher who introduced her golden retriever puppy Wilson to our Bairnsdale community who has become our campus therapy dog and Ben agreed to visit the campus more than two years ago to help raise money for Wilson’s upkeep and training. Then the region got hit by bushfires and then of course the pandemic so our plans have been delayed and delayed but with everything our region has gone through Ben suggested we turn his visit into a bigger event to not only help our School community but the wider East Gippsland community as well.”
As a leadership mentor Crowe works closely with business leaders, governments, teenagers and teams and athletes across the globe to show how a deep focus on authenticity, vulnerability and connection can create not only an amazing culture and competitive advantage but also a life that balances achievement with fulfilment. Ben Crowe will present ‘The Perspective Talk’ at Gippsland Grammar’s Bairnsdale Campus at Bullumwaal Rd, Wy Yung, on Thursday May 5 from 6.30pm.
Tickets are $100 and include refreshments. A bar featuring local wine will also be available. All proceeds will be donated to wellbeing initiatives at the Bairnsdale Campus, which includes the upkeep and training of therapy dog, Wilson.
