Why do you work with Trisutto?
Until recently, coaching is not something, that I had considered. However my own coach (Brett) saw something in me and insisted that I could be a good coach. After a few weeks of reflection, I decided that I would like to help him and give back for how much energy, caring and belief he has in me.
Throughout my professional career I have found that my performances have had a much larger impact beyond just for myself. Rather than being a singular pursuit of a selfish goal, I have come to realise the positive impact that I can generate for others; it can be like a wave, or butterfly effect and can change others lives also.
Using my life's experiences to both help people and to leave a legacy is something that fuels me and makes me feel alive! So I would like to give back the best way possible, with passion, caring and always looking for excellence.
