Will Greenwood's experiences as a financial trader at HSBC bank and then - in a fundamental career move - as a professional rugby player, have given him a unique insight into the motivational themes that permeate both the business arena and the sports field. His leadership skills formed a crucial component in England's victory in the 2003 World Rugby Cup final, and provided an inspirational demonstration of what it takes to achieve peak performance when the heat is on.
A team member of the Leicester Tigers and also the Harlequins, after winning the Rugby World Cup and becoming one of England's highest ever try scorers, Will retired aged 34, subsequently devoting his time to public speaking and working as a commentator within the equally challenging media field! He currently works as an analyst for Sky Sports and regularly appears on 'The Rugby Club' and as a commentator for live premiership matches, as well as being a co-presenter - with Scott Quinnell - of Sky TV's School of Hard Knocks. He has also written for various newspapers since his retirement from the Rugby field, include a column for the Daily Telegraph.
Will is a co-founder of a Travel and Events business called SuperSkills Experiences, which offers children and corporate clients the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of the biggest names in sport. He is also a patron of the Child Bereavement Trust, a charity that supports parents who have lost a child, a cause that is personally close to his heart.
Will's outstanding career has furnished him with an almost endless supply of stories, which he adapts to entertain across a wide range of audiences, whether they follow rugby or not. Combining experience with a natural sense of humour and comic timing, Will has established himself as one of the most in-demand speakers around.
Will is ideal for After-dinner Speaking, Rugby Club Dinners, Golf Days and hosting other Sports and Corporate functions. Please contact a Prime Performers Booking Agent via the online booking enquiry form or on 020 7251 8222 to discuss your requirements.
