It’s the ultimate battle of brains versus brawn. But what if you could have both? Well it appears that our very own partner, Stephen Holmes can attest to having both. Steve recently completed a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree at the Bond University Law faculty finishing with 1st Class honours. He also topped the field in Planning and Development Law. Already gifted in the art of specialist tax consulting, and training many other accounting firms on the Eastern Seaboard of Australia, this is a further string to his impressive string of post nominals. So how does he unwind? Well it seems that to bring balance to the force from the rigours of work and study, Steve considers physical endurance to be the perfect remedy. Over the weekend he completed the Port Macquarie Half Ironman event in the time of 5 hours 59 minutes (a 21 minute personal best for this course). This is the 4th event of this distance he has undertaken in the past 12 months (in-between Triathlons, Mountain Bike Races and Ocean Swims). Add into the mix a wife and two young kids, Steve really has taken the work, life, play balance to impressive heights. From all the partners and staff at WMS we congratulate Steve on these impressive individual achievements.
