Motivational Speaking at Rakaia Sports Awards night

What a fun night giving a motivational speech to the passionate & fun community sporting talent at the 2016 Rakaia Sports Awards!

The passion and fun of the Rakaia community is contagious - Laughing with Jim.



I love recounting how I met Steve Irwin in person at the Eco Challenge in Cairns Australia. He was such a passionate man and I use him as a role model.


Sadly he died after being stung by a sting-ray, but I’m reminded “It’s not the years in your life, but the life in your years that matters”



Instead of trophies, the community award was a bunch of trees to plant. Cool!


Some of New Zealand’s future world champions I’m sure!
