The Ultimate Performance takes both Passion and Process.

I get it.

At the start of my career I thought the athletes standing on podiums had it figured out, and whatever they did was a template I should emulate to get there. But anyone who stands on a podium is their own version of a Champion and gets there in their own way.

Since 2016 I have worked with elite athletes as a mentor and helped set up the first formalised mentoring system in British Rowing. I work remotely and in person with ad-hoc sessions, or we can build a structure of ongoing conversation tailored to the mentee.

Finding the right mindset is completely individual, and being a full-time athlete
is hard, but it doesn’t have to be negatively stressful.


"Five Olympics Games, and multiple medal winning experiences. Fran has brought all her experience of the ups and downs of sport at the very highest level to her mentoring role. Challenging, supporting and nurturing the athletes she has worked with to help enhance the development of well rounded successful elite athletes

I would thoroughly recommend Frances as a mentor to any level of athlete.

"Fran has been instrumental in my development throughout my rowing career. She offers her high performance perspective from a stance of meeting you on your level and collaborates your ideas and conversations to allow you to feel in control of your own destiny. An individual like Fran doesn’t come around often. Her modesty on her outstanding and incredible achievements makes for her to be one of the best mentors out there. I still can’t believe I am talking to a five time Olympian about my daily life! She has seen and done it all, and has helped me more than she will ever realise. "

"Fran, thank you. You are amazing at understanding the heart of the issue, even when I don’t feel that I can articulate things clearly. You are a brilliant mentor."
