Coach Curl – Tony. I am the son of a NSW Country Rugby League referee and at an early age I learnt the power of words as I saw my dad keep control of some tough country boys playing a tough game, competing against vocal and passionate supporters. We moved from Glen Innes to Maroochydore and from there became a life-long lover of the waves, a pastime I enjoy when time and priorities permit.
Like many, I really had no idea what I wanted to do on leaving school, in 1984. I fell into retail becoming a Trainee Manager with Kmart and then spent the next 30 years working my way through some of Australia’s favourite retailers. In 2013, secure in a role and accountable for a portfolio of $300m and a team of over 300, I chose to change careers after finally finding my purpose. I love seeing the life come back into people, I love working with courageous people chasing their dreams. I am certified with two leading experts in the world, Steve Maraboli and John Maxwell and know the fear you face when you do take steps towards your goals.
