Maggie Alphonsi is the face of international women’s rugby and arguably one of the most well-known names in women’s team sports on the planet. Before announcing her international retirement in 2014, she represented her country an impressive 74 times, scored 28 tries, won a World Cup and helped England win a record breaking seven consecutive Six Nations crowns.

Through her England rugby career she has become a household name but also a media professional, and since retiring she has commentated on live rugby matches, and featured in a diverse array of media outlets, from Stella Magazine, to BBC’s Children in Need and The One Show.

Maggie Alphonsi was also a crucial member of the team that won the 2014 Rugby World Cup for the first time in 20 years and was part of the team that was crowned the BBC’s Sports Personality Team of the Year.

She was named as part of ITV’s 2015 Rugby World Cup stellar broadcast line-up, before then becoming part of ITV Sport’s ongoing Rugby broadcast team.

Her inclusion in this line-up made her the first ever former female player to commentate on men’s international rugby. Maggie is also a regular on Sky Sports, BBC Sport and England Rugby TV.

Maggie Alphonsi is an excellent speaker, and is well qualified to share her experiences. Certainly when she shares those experiences, you don’t need to be a rugby fan to be interested or inspired by how she has become a prominent figure in the challenging world of a male dominated sport. Delivering to a wide variety of audiences, from corporate businesses, to sports events or going into schools to inspire the next generation, Maggie has a story you want to hear.
