If you don't remember or haven't heard, we have a podcast now! Below is a brief description of our special and first guest on the podcast as well as the episode itself.
Here it is for you listeners:
Samuel (Sam) Ho is an ex-national Australian Junior Badminton Player. I first met Sam when we were playing for our respective state teams in the Australia & New Zealand under 17s team tournament (June Bevan - JB). His infectious smile, laughter and his no-filter way of communicating makes him the perfect guest to begin our podcast with.
Beyond badminton, Sam currently works in one of Australia's largest banks, National Australia Bank, in Corporate Finance, and is soon to complete his MBA at Melbourne Business School. He is currently in London spending a semester at the prestigious London Business School before he returns to Australia early next year for his wedding!
In this episode, Sam talks about how his involvement in badminton has contributed to his success in both his career and life, including his work as a corporate banker and in his journey as an MBA student.

Last year in August, I was lucky enough to travel to Basel, Switzerland to coach the Australian Team at the 2019 World Championships.
Being a former player that has competed at such tournaments such as the World Championships, I found that the experience was vastly different as a coach compared to an athlete.
Some of us train a lot. Some of us train a little. Some not at all.
Regardless of which category you fall into, we want to make sure that when we're on court, we make the best of it because let's face it - with our busy lives, it's likely that we don't get to spend as much time playing or training as we'd like.
