Fee Range: E

Kerri Pottharst has spent a lifetime
decoding human high performance. She is an Olympic champion who has dedicated her life to personal growth and evolution.

As a tall and lanky teenager, Kerri grew up in some ways feeling somewhat out of place. In discovering Volleyball she found a
place she could call home, and it was from there she began to rise as one of Australia�s most promising young athletes.

The turning point came for Kerri at the height of her Indoor Volleyball journey when a brutal knee injury should have ended her career. But, what could have been the end, birthed a new beginning.

With a winning mindset, she turned pain into purpose, and pivoted seamlessly into the world of Beach Volleyball.

The rest, as they say, is history.
Most Australians will recognise Kerri
who alongside Nat Cook became
famously known as the REAMACHINE
after they won Gold in Beach Volleyball at the Sydney 2000 Olympics.

For Kerri, this was the culmination of a lifetime of hard work and training teamed with performance and mindset coaches, on and off the sand.

During that time, she competed in
3 Olympic Games, winning two Olympic medals � Bronze in Atlanta and Gold on the iconic Bondi Beach in Sydney.

Kerri is now a highly sought after
Keynote Speaker, MC, Global Sports Commentator, Workshop Facilitator, Coach, Mentor and Author of The Business of Being an Athlete.

KEYNOTE SPEAKING Upon retiring from international-level competition, like many world-class athletes, becoming a speaker was a possible next step. That said, the world of speaking, just like sport, is a game where only the best survive.

However, Kerri had a Gold Medal
winning tool kit from her sporting
experiences that would serve her well.

As a result, she has spoken to
audiences from top-tier corporate
organisations in Australia and around the world for over 15 years.

As a speaker, Kerri is charismatic,
yet credible. She is warm, yet at the same time, her content is designed to challenge audiences to step into a new potential. She is a natural storyteller sharing personal anecdotes that are both emotional and meaningful.

Kerri is renowned for being the
consummate professional, and thus she embraces a solutions-based mindset, and prides herself on ensuring her content is precise yet at the same time infused with aspiration for what�s possible tomorrow.

She shares stories to entertain and
motivate. She also shares the exact strategies her team used and gives real ideas and tactics to educate and inspire her audiences to believe they too can achieve anything they set their minds to.
