The Search for Perfection | John Bertrand AO
n Episode 66, “The Search for Perfection”, Blenheim Partners’ Gregory Robinson speaks again to John Bertrand AO, international sportsman, Olympic medallist and world champion. John famously skippered Australia II to win the 1983 America’s Cup, which was voted as the finest team performance in 200 years of Australian sport by The Confederation of Australian Sport. He is currently Chair of The Sport Australia Hall of Fame and previously President of Swimming Australia.As we all look to leadership to help us navigate past the new normal, John returns to the show to share a glimpse into a world beyond the elastic limitations of the rules, with a particular focus on high performance – both as an individual and as part of a team. We learn what it takes to deliver on the biggest stage, from the thousands of hours of perfect practice to the mentality required to perform in the moment. In this inspiring discussion, Greg and John dig deep and discuss the profound impact of a true leader in lifting their team, their organisation and the country.
