About Us

"We don’t believe in failure, we believe in learning. You only fail when you don’t learn from your experiences in life"

The Long & the Short of It was formed from the minds and experience of two athletes from opposite ends of the sporting world.

Mark Foster, 5 time Olympian sprint swim specialist, 8 times World record holder over 50 meters for freestyle & butterfly and Motivational Speaker, and Jim Rees, Ultra Cyclist, Ironman Triathlete, Author and Executive Coach

Mark and Jim represent the polar opposites of experience and physical aptitude (sprint and endurance). However, they are of one mind when it comes to understanding the required cognitive and emotional discipline for competition, and how to translate this into behaviours that can achieve goals and high-performance targets.

They have explored in depth the personal and collective suite of behaviours that determine success and ambitious achievements.

Together they have applied the knowledge and experience to create a series of standalone talks, workshops and leadership programmes that focus on the attitude, behaviours and the beliefs that underpins success in the business world.

We have a passionate belief that everyone on the planet has greatness inside them. We work with individuals and teams, who are looking for quick wins and long-term performance that is sustainable.
