I gave this presentation at the 3rd International iCoachKids Conference at the University of Limerick on June 14th, 2019. The aim is to provoke consideration around the development of Coaching Philosophies among children’s sport coaching practitioners.

The presentation intends to challenge common, and often superficial, perceptions around what success looks like and why we coach children sports. It is hoped to shed some light on the differences between children’s and adults’ motivations to participate in sport and what the meaning of success is, at its deepest level, to both an individual and a collective basis.


This is a presentation I gave at the 2018 Professional Doctorate Student Conference at Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland on: “Investigating the Role of Paradoxical Thinking and its Effectiveness in Managing Decision-Making for Strategy Implementation.”

The purpose of the presentation is to highlight the development of the early stages of my thesis, and to emphasize motivations for focusing on paradoxical thinking, particularly on the interplay between intuition and rationality.
