Rugby World Cup winner Richard Hill is one of the world’s greatest back row players, a reputation he firmly cemented with inspirational performances throughout his international career.
Richard appeared in every England squad from the U-16 level onwards, before making his senior debut in 1997 against Scotland. Within only a few months of his debut and having won only four full caps, he became a British Lion. The pinnacle of his career came in 2003 with the defeat of Australia in the World Cup final. For many, Richard was the heartbeat of the England team during this period, being the only player never to be dropped during Clive Woodward’s reign.
By the end of an illustrious professional career, Richard had amassed 71 caps for his country. After retiring, he continued his association with Saracens through the club's business development and community outreach programmes, and as an Academy Coach and Mentor. He also has a seat on the Rugby Football Union Council, and acts as a consultant to the RFU, helping to identify, mentor and develop young players both on and off the field.
As a Motivational Speaker, Richard draws on his years on the rugby pitch, sharing his expertise and in-depth knowledge within the following areas:
Leadership - identifying, developing and mentoring new talent;
Team Dynamics and Composition - working within the dynamics of your team;
Motivation and Determination - recognising the importance of enjoying what you do and using this positive spirit to remain focused and overcome physical and psychological set-backs;
