Welcome to the Be World Class Academy

We believe that everyone can be great. Our mission is to help individuals and organisations to unlock their potential and become the best they can possibly be.

Our purpose is to help people to maximise their performance, realise their potential and work towards to becoming world class in their field.

We study world class performers, teams, leaders and organisation, to discover what differentiates them from their competitors. We help others to adopt these principles into their own performance and become great!

Now, we’d like to share those benefits with even more people.

We have established the Be World Class Academy, to help you help others. Through the Academy, we will share our knowledge and experience, from almost 20 years of working with elite teams and performers from sport, business, education and healthcare.

What is the Be World Class Academy?

The Academy is a practitioner education and development programme. It is designed to help anyone that coaches other people to improve their performance; for example...

  • Sport psychologists and sport psych students, mental trainers and performance coaches.
  • Business coaches and management consultants.
  • Leaders and managers from sport, business, education, healthcare and the military.
  • Learning & development, and HR professionals.
  • Sports coaches & Performance Directors.

The programme is structured into 4 levels, from an introductory Level One, to a Global Guru Award at Level 4.

At each level, we focus on developing two things.

  • Helping you to help your clients - by developing your knowledge, skills and experience as a practitioner.
  • Helping you to help more people* – by enabling you to spread the word and engage more people. For those who have a coaching business, this will help you to build your business.
