KEYNOTES

KEYNOTE SPEAKER
Will Carling OBE

After graduating with a degree in Psychology and serving in the Royal Regiment of Wales, Will’s rugby career came to fruition when he played for the Harlequins, acquiring his natural position as centre in 1987. With his vast drive, passion and ambition, Will was made England rugby captain at the very young age of 22. He was able to transfer his leadership, discipline and team co-ordination abilities that he had developed from his experiences in the army, and concentrate them to push England to sporting success. Speaker, Carling provides invaluable advice on how to achieve goals and maximise success, two attributes that are equally important in corporate and sporting environments alike.
