Resilience, mental strength and world-class leadership was front of mind when 80 guests were given exclusive access to a world champion at the Strategic Insight Seminar hosted by Travis Schultz Law at Pier 33 in Mooloolaba on 5 September.

Returning to his hometown on the Sunshine Coast, special guest and Ultra-Endurance athlete Richard Thompson explored the grit and determination it had taken him to claim the world title and how everyone can learn from his experience.

Richard Thompson started his career as a lawyer, but couldn’t resist the lure of the ultimate challenge, the Ultraman Triathlon, which is a three-day event comprising of 10km swim, 420km bike and 84km run.

The endurance athlete became the world record holder on his debut in 2017 and went on to become the first Australian World Champion in Hawaii last year.

Regarded as one of the greatest ultra-endurance athletes of all time, Richard has become an in-demand speaker and coach and has travelled the globe working with teams in large Corporations such as Aurecon, ASICS, Cisco, Training Peaks & InFocus Financial.

His story of hardship, sacrifice and the ultimate success inspired guests at the Travis Schultz Law Strategic Insights Seminar during a professionally themed evening of fine food, wine and leadership.
