Sir Clive Woodward OBE joins Safety & Health Expo programme

Sir Clive Woodward OBE has confirmed he will join the keynote speaker line-up at Safety & Health Expo 2018, with a presentation in which he will set out the attributes needed to create any winning team.

Sir Clive famously guided England to victory in the 2003 Rugby World Cup and three Six Nations tournaments, including an elusive Grand Slam. He has since served as Director of Sport at the British Olympic Association, working in partnership with UK Sport.

At Safety and Health Expo 2018 (at ExCel, London) he will take to the stage on 21st June. He forms part of the event’s inspirational speaker series, which also sees Ruby Wax OBE speaking on 19th June about mental health, Nicky Moffat CBE speaking on 20th June about leadership and her time as the highest ranking female officer in the British Army.

Business career

Sir Clive spent part of his working life in the world of business, first with Rank Xerox in the UK and Australia. He then became sales director of a leasing company within the Ford Group, before forming his own successful leasing operation.

Rugby career

Early in his career Clive enjoyed success on the pitch, winning 21 caps as a player and twice touring with the British Lions.

Clive was universally credited with bringing professionalism, cutting edge techniques and new management skills to English rugby. As he explains in speeches, the squad’s achievements were built on back-room expertise, close attention to detail, thorough mental and physical preparation, competitor analysis and ruthless decision-making.

After leaving rugby Clive became Technical Director and Director of Football at Southampton, and a UEFA qualified coach, before joining the British Olympic Association with a mission to integrate coaches and athletes from all sports into Team GB. London 2012 produced the most successful British performance of the modern era, with 65 medals including 29 golds.

Safety & Health Expo keynote speech

In his presentation at Safety & Health Expo Clive will set out the four attributes to create any winning team: talent, teachability, pressure and will. Using what he calls ‘T-cup moments’ (thinking correctly under pressure), he will show how to prepare for a contest by setting up potentially challenging situations and asking individuals to work out exactly what they would do in each.

His keynote presentation will be free-to-attend and will take place on Thursday 21st June at 11.30am, at Safety & Health Expo, London in the Keynote Theatre, which is supported by Safety Media.
