A journey as much about life as it is the 50 miles to Fishguard

"Row, Row, Row Your Boat" is one of the most popular nursery rhymes out there and tonight (August 19th) a man by the name of Gerry Hussey is turning it into reality.

For him, life is but a dream; a dream where he believes everyone should be the best version of themselves.

Gerry is a Performance Psychological Consultant and Motivational Speaker who has been at the forefront of building high performance teams, organisations and individuals across the globe.

His vast experience has led teams to success at Olympic Games, Heineken Cups, World Cups and All-Ireland Championships and now he has had to face his own demons to try and conquer the Irish Sea.

Speaking on Today FM's Dermot and Dave, Gerry shocked us by saying "nine and a half weeks ago I had never sat in a rowing boat in my life" - and all that Dermot could do was burst out laughing.

This journey of self-discovery has taught him many new things about himself and adds to his "he who has the why has the how" ethos.

The performance coach also chats about the team of novices who are joining him on the adventure and tells us why we must all fit as much into our "900 months" as we can.

Gerry returns as a speaker to this year's Soul Space - The Experience in Claregalway Castle on September 15th and has offered a 10% discount code soulspace10 

Soul Space - The Experience is a powerful, immersive one day event that delivers a synergy of remarkable workshops held by leading minds in mental, physical, spiritual and human performance. You will be brought on a Journey of Soul Growth to Nourish, Awaken, Inspire and Heal (and was co-founded by Gerry).
