Clive Woodward's talks open up a fascinating glimpse into the painstaking analysis, attention to detail, ruthless decision making and team building that creates success in both business and sport.
Sir Clive Woodward has had distinguished careers in both sport and business. As a player he represented England Rugby on 21 occasions and toured twice with the British Lions - he has also worked with Rank Xerox in the UK and Australia, as sales director of a leasing company within the Ford Group, and set up his own computer leasing operation. But it was when he brought business principles to bear on the way sport was being coached and played that his remarkable team building abilities were unleashed.
He became head coach of the England team in 1997 and set about revolutionising the sport by introducing business principles including the setting of long term goals and getting involved in the detail of player development. He took the team to victory in the 2003 World Cup and received a knighthood from the Queen.
After leaving rugby he became Technical Director and Director of Football at Southampton, and a UEFA qualified coach before being chosen as Director of Sport on behalf of the British Olympic Association. There he was responsible for turning athletes and sportsmen from all disciplines into Team GB. They then went on to achieve the best ever performance by a British Olympic team ever at the London 2012 games.
Sir Clive Woodward now delivers inspirational talks to a wide range of audiences and has written an autobiography about his winning ways.
