Sir Clive Woodward announced as speaker for Business Leaders Lecture

Rugby World Cup winning coach and businessman, Sir Clive Woodward OBE, has been announced as the keynote speaker at this year’s Business Leaders Lecture at The Hilton at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton, on 20th September 2017, hosted by Rothmans Accountants.

Sir Clive’s legendary leadership skills and visionary approach to winning led the England rugby union team to World Cup glory in 2003 and his tenure as Director of Sport for Team GB at the London 2012 Olympic Games saw the home nation record its greatest ever overall performance. These achievements have been matched off the field by an equally impressive track record of business achievements.

Prior to moving into professional rugby, Sir Clive ran his own successful leasing and finance company. Today, Clive helps leading organisations and coaching professionals in business and sport maximise the impact of their investments in training and development in his role as Founder and Chairman of Hive Learning – the collaborative learning app.

Sir Clive is also a highly-respected speaker on leadership and high-performance, and his presentations are in great demand by organisations worldwide for the motivational insights they bring, using his own stellar career as a businessman, athlete and coach as a backdrop.

Sir Clive says, “I am very pleased to have the opportunity to speak at this prestigious event for business leaders. Leadership is a vital part of any organisation as it is through good leadership that organisations can thrive.

“I hope to be able to use my experience to inspire those at this event and I also look forward to hearing inspirational stories from others.”

Martin Osborne, Rothmans Senior Partner, says: “We are delighted to welcome Sir Clive Woodward to this year’s Business Leaders Lecture. Each time we arrange this, our aim is to provide an inspirational event to support businesses in the South. The lecture series has become a significant date in the calendar for business leaders who want to find out the secrets of success from high profile speakers at the very top of British industry.

“Sir Clive’s ability to search out glory on the playing field is matched by his ability to motivate businesses to achieve that same excellence. We look forward to him sharing his experiences with us and finding out the methods he applies to ensuring success at the highest level.”

The Business Leaders Lecture, which includes refreshments, is complimentary to business guests, who will also be invited to follow Sir Clive’s presentation with questions.
