Podcast with Sir Clive Woodward

Each week Maria Franzoni, Speaker Bureau Director, invites one of her speakers to talk about their life, work, passions and leisure so that you can get to know the person who is the speaker behind the mic.

This week Maria’s guest on the show is Clive Woodward, the World Cup winning head coach who led England’s rugby players to World Cup glory in Australia in 2003. He himself is a former England international and British and Irish Lion. During Clive’s tenure as head coach, England moved from number 6 in the world to be the number 1 ranked team, winning every trophy an England team could win.

Clive was GB’s Director of Sport for the British Olympic Association.  He worked in close partnership with key stakeholders to support the national coaches and athletes at the Beijing and Vancouver Olympics. As well as to deliver team Britain’s most successful Olympic Games at London 2012.

In this week’s show Sir Clive Woodward talks to us about his career as England Rugby Coach, the Olympic Games, his international ski academy in France and about how he started his path of delivering speeches to businesses.  He also talks about why he won’t be doing Strictly Come Dancing anytime soon! All this and more…
