Georgie + Ben Ainslie chat to people in high performance partnerships from sport, entertainment, business and politics in this new podcast. They talk about success + failure, highs + lows and how to overcome all sorts together. What these people know about performance is worth knowing (and sharing).
“It was the biggest leadership lesson I learned in my life and it guides me even now. At a personal and professional level I would have loved David to be part of the team (Team Sky). However, I also fundamentally believe the sport needed to change and the change needed to be systemic.”
“When I came back after my ban my biggest drive was ‘this shouldn’t have happened to me’. My motivation for putting so much work in to the anti doping movement…I knew I could prevent it happening to younger riders.”
