Sir Clive Woodward is the World Cup winning Head Coach who led England’s rugby players to World Cup glory in Australia in 2003. A former England International and British & Irish Lion himself, prior to his full time coaching career Clive established a successful business career working for nine years with Xerox in the UK and Australia before establishing his own small finance and leasing company. During Clive’s tenure as Head Coach England moved from 6th in the world to being the number one ranked team, winning every trophy an England team can win.
In 2006 Clive joined the British Olympic Association. As Team GB’s Director of Sport he worked in close partnership with key stakeholders in British Sport to support the national coaches and athletes at the Beijing & Vancouver Olympics as well as deliver Team GB’s most successful Olympic Games in the modern era at London 2012.
Clive is currently the Founder and Chairman of Hive Learning – an app which has digitised Clive’s coaching methods and is designed to improve the quality of learning in business and sport and is the Director of Sport for the APEX2100 International Ski Academy which aims to become the World’s Leading High-Performance Academy for young, aspiring athletes wanting to achieve their goals in Alpine Skiing.
Clive also offers Digital Learning programmes on “The DNA of a Champion” which is a live learning platform and community that provides simple, powerful insights and practices that will help any leader, manager, team or individual to improve their performance.
Based on the notion that “Great Teams Are Made of Great Individuals”, Clive has identified four criteria, which he believes characterise a champion individual or team in both business and sport. ‘The DNA of a Champion’ details each of these criteria, but also how they can be coached to achieve high performing teams.
Focused on “creating an environment so good that everyone wants to be a part of and nobody ever wants to leave,” Clive’s talk on creating a Winning Culture encapsulates the collaborative leadership model Clive successfully applied to the World Cup winning England rugby team and Team GB at London 2012.
Having worked with champion teams and individuals in sport and business over the last 2 decades Clive has identified that the ability to learn and take on new skills is a key characteristic of any Champion individual. In this talk on “Relentless Learning” Clive will explain the importance of learning and collaboration in high performance and describe how he coaches teams and individuals to learn better together everyday.
Clive’s reputation as an innovative leader is driven by his determined approach to challenge the traditional school of thought and find new, different ways of operating and this has never been more important in today’s ever changing corporate world. In his talk on “Tackling Change” Clive will highlight why it is important to embrace change and illustrate how creating a culture of relentless learning can help teams and organisations to adapt and succeed.
Data and Technology is a very powerful tool in sport and business. But only if everyone understands Why and How to use it. In this talk I explain how I use Data and Technology with the teams that I work with and the impact it can have on individual and team performance.
