Our keynote speaker Will Greenwood MBE, former rugby player for England, uses his plentiful experience from the pitch and the world of business to give charming & inspirational keynotes on leadership, change management, and teamwork.

Armed with an Economics degree from Durham University, our ardent speaker Will Greenwood MBE started his working life as a trader for HSBC on London’s City trading floor – but would move on to become the second highest try scorer in English rugby history. In 2003, he helped England win the Rugby World Cup, and today, he is widely regarded as one of England’s greatest rugby players ever, and one of the sport’s most engaging, intelligent, and entertaining characters.

Starting out in team rugby, the keynote speaker Will Greenwood had his national debut in 1997. He cemented his position as an England regular in the 2000/01 season under legendary coach Sir Clive Woodward, and would go on to receive many accolades, including many man-of-the-match performances. He became joint top scorer when England won the World Cup in 2003.

During his 11 years at the top, Will Greenwood faced multiple injuries, personal tragedy, and the occasional self-doubt. His remarkable ability to persevere reveals the extent of his focus and determination to remain among the best – nationally and internationally. This attitude has remained with him off the pitch, where he is a regular match day presenter for Sky. He works with several non-profit organizations, and fronts the popular “School of Hard Knocks,” a social inclusion charity that works with at-risk young people. He is patron of the Child Bereavement Charity and an ambassador for the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England.

The eloquent speaker Will Greenwood is a successful entrepreneur and owns SuperSkills Experiences, a company which provides family holiday experiences, facilitates corporate events, and runs SportFest, an annual family sporting event. His latest venture ‘Sport Show’ will see representatives from a huge array of sports come together for a 3 day annual event, aimed at offering the opportunity for children of all ages to experience new sports and be inspired to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.

With a reputation as a bright, articulate, and entertaining personality, our speaker Will Greenwood delivers intelligent and insightful keynotes that can shed light on the more serious lessons learnt from a career in elite sport, as well the synergies between high performance in sport and business.

Interview with Will Greenwood MBE

How are your keynote presentations unique?
An insider’s view of a drive for excellence and teamship culminating in World Cup victory.

Do you have a favourite experience from your speaking career?
Talking to a South Korean Shipping audience and getting polite applause.

How much does humor factor into your keynotes and other speaking engagements?
Self-deprecating humour is most definitely in the mix and a good way of conveying a point or keeping an audience engaged. It’s always good to read an audience and judge context though.

What is the most unique experience you have had as a result of your rugby career?
Being bought a ham and cheese sandwich by an octogenarian as a thank you for making her grandson smile.

What are your three best tips for successful change management in an organization?
First off have a leader with a vision – but then break down big goals into achievable objectives, and create a unity of standards, spirit and culture.
