As well as being a keynote speaker, Anna is also a business owner, coach and consultant.
When she retired from the world of elite sport, she founded Beyond the Barriers, a high-performance training consultancy dedicated to improving the performance and resilience of individuals and teams in challenging environments.
About Beyond The Barriers
The Beyond the Barriers team is made up of a range of experts – from Olympic athletes to performance psychologists and wellbeing professionals. We are all leading specialists in our fields. We help bring a valuable and inspiring perspective to the workplace, and we all have relevant personal and practical experiences to draw on and share. This is what makes us different.
Drawing on the lessons from sport, Beyond the Barriers helps individuals and teams to stay on top of their game by developing the winning mindset. The difference between a truly exceptional performer and an average performer is not talent – it is the way that talent is applied.

She is an excellent workshop facilitator, trainer and performance coach and works with her team to deliver training and coaching with immediate impact to companies of every size.
