Game Changer | Success beyond Sport
From the Olympic Stage of Beach Volleyball to the corporate and conference stages on three continents, Annette Lynch is a Game Changer.
As Annette Huygens-Tholen, her self-motivation, drive and curiosity found a way to not only realize a 25 years of playing for her home country Australian in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, but also to forge a new career beyond sport.
The game change was not easy. A fierce competitor on the court, Annette was not fully prepared for retirement! She retired 3 times over 6 years before she took charge to change her Game and change her life.
She wrote about her experience, insights and studies in “Success Beyond Sport – How to Retire From Sport and Keep Winning.” Her 8 step program provides the foundation for others to create the success they want.
Annette Lynch’s mission is to inspire others to take charge of their lives, arming them with confidence, skills and solutions to communicate and lead.
As a motivational speaker, Annette is engaging, witty and insightful putting the spotlight on her message, delivering substance that inspires action and change. She is a natural chameleon, tuning into her audience and adapting her communication to connect at many levels.
Previously a trainer and workshop leader for several leading local and international organizations, Annette has also spoken to audiences in many countries that have included the Institute for Athletes in Retirement and Transition Conference; The Pro-Athlete Business Group Conference; the Roto-Rooters Franchise Association and the Australian Drilling Safety Conference.
She now lives in Hawaii using her nimble thinking and unassuming demeanor to provide innovative solutions for clients.
A graduate of the University of Queensland, Annette is a Master Results Certified NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Practitioner and holds a diploma in freelance journalism. She continues to study and research to keep up with cutting-edge ideas.
When not making a difference in the lives of her clients, or spending time with her amazing husband, two cats and dog, Annette contributes time to help others in the community in the areas of teen motivation.
