As one of the country’s best and most consistently inspiring motivational speakers, Frank is still riding high on the outstanding results from his position as High-Performance Director at SASCOC (South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee) where he was the consultant to South Africa's top coaches and athletes at the Rio Olympics and Paralympics.  RSA achieved 10 medals with 2 Gold, 6 Silver & 2 bronze. Four of those medals were won in athletics, Franks area of expertise.  
In 2016 Frank was invited by Eddie Jones to undertake a challenging position in the UK as strategic planning consultant the England Rugby Leadership Team in preparation for Rugby World Cup 2019 Japan. 
He is also President of the European Athletics Coaches Association, Member of the IAAF Coaches Commission, as well as Chair (and architect) of the IAAF Academy.
From 1979 to 1994 he was the British Athletics Federation's Director of Coaching, where he was widely acknowledged as and remains one of the outstanding sports coaches and coach mentors in the world.  In this position Frank led the British Athletics team into its "golden era" with Olympic gold medallists such as Daley Thompson, Steve Ovett and Sebastian Coe. Frank personally trained Daley Thompson and created training programmes for individuals such as Gerhard Berger, Katarina Witt, Boris Becker and Justin Rose.
