“Dynamic and adaptable self starter with strong communications skills, working from home, the field or office environment. Able to work autonomously or as part of a team”
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.
George Washington Carver
A 10 year career as an international athlete and Olympian has helped Vernon to find
a powerful “voice” of expression in the public arena that has enabled him to be a
high performer and achiever. He is well aware of the journey that many want to take
from obscurity to significance and has dedicated his live to helping others to find
and express their own “voice” of greatness that lies within the individual or organisation.
Beyond his experiences as an elite athlete, Vernon has enjoyed working with a diverse
range professionals and volunteers in a variety of organisations and projects seeking
to bring about change on a individual, community or societal level.
What motivates Vernon to employ his skills, experiences and insights to the benefits of paid and voluntary positions or assignments is a strong desire to add value and make a difference to whatever he is involved with - to positively impact the lives of individuals and organisations he has the privilege to influence.
When individuals, organisations, communities or partnerships want to achieve important things, Vernon demonstrates time and time again that a “can do” attitude coupled with an ability to learn and adapt to new situation can create superior solutions in the face of life’s many challenges.
