In the next episode of The PURPOSE Podcast, we have Colin O’Shea, head coach and founder of COS Coaching.

Seven years ago, Colin came to Singapore with his finance career in the commodities market. However, in 2015, the market took a downturn and after a redundancy, Colin was considering his next move.

Having been settled in Singapore at that time (his first son was born here!), he and his wife Donna decided to stay put in Singapore.

Colin went to get his qualifications as a triathlon coach and renewed his swim coaching qualifications; and then registered COS Coaching as a business and began taking on athletes.

COS Coaching rose quickly and is one of the top triathlon coaching squads in Singapore, with many top athletes qualifying for the Ironman/Ironman 70.3 World Championships and also securing podium finishes regularly.

Here, we talk to Colin about his background as a college swimmer and university swim captain, his career in finance and how he went from managing assets to managing athletes.
