Having had success with Michael Maguire in 2014, I decided I wanted to work with Michael Cheika. Maguire knows him well and sent a referral text to him on my behalf. At the time, Michael was the Waratahs Super Rugby coach with 2 wins, 2 losses & 2 draws. Cheika rung me on 16 March 2015, I met him in Brisbane 2 weeks later for an “Expect to Win” foundational talk with a programme to win the 2015 World Cup.
I was then in contact with him almost every day about the Waratahs up until the semi-finals. At the completion of the Super Rugby season, Cheika took on his full time role as Wallabies Coach.
I had met with him when he was in camp in Brisbane in March 2015 and started the belief culture with an “Expect to Win” talk. I met with him 8 times in person, over a total of 7 hours, including face to face sessions prior to the Wallabies V South Africa game in Brisbane & Wallabies vs New Zealand in Sydney to win the 2015 Mandela Challenge Plate, the Puma Trophy & the 2015 Southern Hemisphere Rugby Championship.
Throughout the World Cup, I have been in contact with Cheika every day via txt or phone and have a track record of 12 tests for 10 wins and resurrected the Wallabies from 6th in the world to 2nd in the world.
