World Record Freediver

Freediver Ant Williams holds the World Record as the deepest man under ice. An in-demand keynote speaker, Ant explains the value of positive risk taking to anyone in business. For over a decade, he’s developed the leaders of Blue-Chip companies teaching mental toughness to help them build courage, perform under pressure and deliver consistent results.

Becoming a risk taker

Ant worked as a Sport Psychologist coaching big wave surfers, motoGP riders, rock climbers and other risk takers on how to break through mental barriers when he realised, according to him, he was a fraud. He hadn’t done anything risky in his life. He wanted to know if anyone could learn how to become a risk taker. So, Ant decided to take up freediving and learn firsthand how to perform under pressure.

One of the deepest men in the world, Ant has pushed through both physical and mental barriers to hold his breath for over 8 minutes, dive to -100m and to swim 240m on one breath. In short, he knows how to overcome some of the most demanding and uncomfortable challenges a person can face. Ant teaches others how to “lean into discomfort” and take positive, calculated risk.

Performance under pressure

In his keynotes and workshops, Ant helps leaders find their courage to shift organisational direction and take on the challenges of modern disruption. For over a decade Ant has held senior roles in Australian consulting firms. As the Founder and Director of Modus Leadership, he sponsors all key accounts including Thales, YMCA, Alinta Energy, Sydney Trains, Fujitsu, Sportsbet, ASG Group & Dentsu Aegis Network. He’s an authentic presenter who offers a unique blend of entertainment
and interaction with a powerful message.
