The 6 Pillars of Success

Talks & Presentations

We speak to cricket clubs and schools all over Australia to give them an insight into what it takes to become their best both on and off the field.

At Cricket Mentoring, we believe that to be successful, athletes & coaches must be working on themselves in these 6 key areas:

How This Works

Ex-professional cricketer and founder of Cricket Mentoring Tom Scollay, will present to your club or school either in-person (if you are located in Perth) or online via Zoom, as he continues his quest of trying to be the mentor that he wish he had when he was younger. He will cover what Cricket Mentoring believes to be The 6 Pillars of Success and some key concepts to help you live a happier life both on and off the field.

The presentation will start with a core module that helps our clients discover who they are as a person and what it is that they really value in life. The rest is up to you as you’ll have the choice of a range of topics to help tailor it to your needs.
