Henning Gericke - Sports, Motivational and Keynote Speaker - Johannesburg

Henning’s regular motivational and Team Building sessions with Top Companies feature his highly-popular presentation, “The Mindset of a Championship Team” and it have proved to be a real winner with any team which needs to continue to strive for increasing levels of achievement.

It covers his tenure in the 4 year build-up to the 2007 world cup and the inside story of what took the failed Springboks of 2003 to the World Champs just 4 years later.

His presentation covers:
• What is the Dream – and how do you keep it alive for so long?
• How do you move the goal from a dream into each player’s sub-conscious?
• How do you build a family – there can be NO common dream of goal if there is NO family unit !
• How do you take a team from ordinary to excellent?

Hear the actual music that the Bokke heard to inspire them – before every outing!

Jake White was the first Springbok coach to employ a full time Sports Psychologist for the Springboks in the form of Dr Henning Gericke. He said: “Having known, worked with, and learnt from Henning in the last few years, I have seldom met anyone who has finer instincts around team dynamics, a critical component when moulding distinctly provincial players into a new national team.”
