“Leadership – we associate it with a title or hierarchy, but the reality is leadership happens every day in the way we act, the way we behave, the attitude we have, the support we show each other. I don’t think it’s something that is a burden but something you should be aware of and sit comfortably with who you are and what you do”

My special guest is Kieren Perkins. Kieren is a legend of the swimming pool which includes being a 4 time Olympic medallist and former world record holder. He is considered one of the greatest long distance swimmers of all time, winning 2 Olympic Gold medals in 1992 and 1996 and silver in 2000.

You will learn plenty from Kieren Perkins in episode 18 of Talking with TK.
