Gilbert Enoka

Volleyball New Zealand is very excited to announce Gilbert as the first of our guest speakers at the Aotearoa Invitational coaching conference. Gilbert represented New Zealand in Volleyball for 10 years, and also coached successfully with Hillmorton High School. Enoka had considerable success as a coach and was always looking for ways to improve his team's performance. That led him down the track of the mind and how the brain works and how that can either assist or inhibit performance. He started exploring those dimensions and applying those principles to the teams he was coaching. There was an instant connection with it, and it became a passion, which he pursued with vigor. Enoka has previously worked with the All Blacks, the Crusaders Super Rugby Team, the New Zealand Cricket Team, Netball New Zealand and WRC Champion Hayden Paddon, all as a mental skills coach and a manager for the All Blacks also. Besides Sport, he has worked on performance enhancement for over 20 years with many of our top CEO's and Business Elite.
