Winning from a Place of Fear to Winning from a Place of Love?
Layne Beachley AO

Layne Beachley AO is widely regarded as the most successful female surfer in history and the only surfer – male or female – to claim six consecutive world titles (1998-2003). Layne then went on to win a 7th world title in 2006 but her winner-takes-all determination extracted a heavy toll both physically and mentally which Layne was forced to confront after retiring from the ASP World Tour in 2008. In this inspirational conversation, Layne shares her model for sustainable success, provides life-changing tips and tools to turn ideas and intentions into actions, and will empower you to become the champion of your own life story.
