Michael Duff's Biography

Author, Coach and High Performance CEO Michael Duff is a consultant for high performance minds. Michael has built an enviable reputation as one of Australia's leading corporate coaches of the mental side of high performance human behaviour. A co-author with tennis legend John Newcombe of The Power Within:How to Create a High Performance Mind, Michael has an inherent understanding of what it takes to be the best. He has worked for over 20 years with CEO’s and senior executives at many of Australia and New Zealand’s top companies, helping them to understand their own mindset and thought patterns and find 'flow' in their lives, enabling them to consistently achieve their individual and team goals while building resilience.

Michael has spent his career in the corporate world and understands the pressures and demands that executives face on a daily basis. His own corporate career saw him become the youngest ever head of an Australian professional sport when he became CEO of the PGA Tour [professional golf] at the age of 28.

After 5 very successful years at the helm of the Tour he then moved to tennis and spent the next 5 years running half the world for the ATP Tour, the global men's pro tennis circuit. It was during this time that he started to recognise the importance of mental strength as the key to a successful, balanced, achieving life.

With direct access to many of the world's most successful people Michael initially pursued his interest to understand what creates a sustained high performing mindset. In 2000 he started MINDsense to teach his insights to Australian corporate leaders; a Zen influenced common sense approach to living a stress free life while balancing the demands of life in the 21st century.

Outside the corporate world Michael also coaches a number of world class athletes and sporting teams.

Michael’s conference keynote presentations are regularly rated as the highlight of the conferences he is invited to speak at. He is a gifted speaker who weaves an amazing corporate career into his storytelling in a way that connects with, inspires, empowers and challenges his audiences.

Today leaders and conference organisers are looking for more than just a motivational spiel from their guest speakers. Michael will leave people with a greater level of curiosity to explore what is really possible for them and with an understanding of how to begin unlocking the power of their minds.

Throughout his career he has worked and become friends with some of the most successful people on the planet. He explores his insights in a very entertaining and thought provoking way while at the same time sharing his own journey with vulnerability, honesty and courage.
