The Business Olympian


My first book “The Business Olympian” was released by new Holland in 2008. The book explored the aspects of mental toughness and the lessons we can learn from some of the best athletes in the world.

Gavin’s book will take you inside the minds of elite athletes and give you an insight into how the power of the mind can be harnessed to improve your effectiveness in business. He has made accessible to his readers a range of invaluable tips, tricks and techniques to train and enhance the performance of a new generation of Business Olympians. I trust that you will enjoy this important and brilliant book – and the rewards that mastery of its techniques will bring – as much as I did.
