For over 30 years Joanne Love’s coaching methods have influenced Australia’s leading athletes, coaches, and teams.
“I love to see everyone perform at their best. Unfortunately, many people are held back by leaders who don’t know how to inspire the people they lead. Today’s young people aren’t lazy! They just need to be engaged.”
