Get Your Free Ticket to Jonny Wilkinson's Talk at Safety & Health Expo 2019

Arguably one of the best-known rugby players in the world, Jonny Wilkinson CBE famously kicked the drop goal that won England the 2003 World Cup with just seconds left in the final. Much of Jonny’s success on the field, however, took its psychological toll. Jonny has dealt with depression, anxiety and panic attacks. In his honest, unguarded speech, entitled ‘Success on the field and mental health: a personal account of understanding what matters’, Jonny will recount how his focus and dedication to the sport he loves meant overlooking important parts of his life.

Very common cause for poor safety and cause of many accidents. If these violations can be addressed in any organisation then they will be well on their way to a safety culture. Another great video Tim

Always good videos but you let yourself down on this one!

I take offence at:
1. The way a Irish welcome is described.
2. A Pub is not the place to bring Kids.

Hi Christy

I’m hoping that comment tongue in cheek! If not just to say that I was seeking a common experience (and one that I’ve experienced myself) where, looking for a sit down and a sandwich somewhere on a holiday isle, a sign promising ‘a warm Irish welcome’ (or some such) doesn’t always deliver what you’d hope! Nothing against my Irish cousins at all.

PS In all seriousness i do think the Continental attitude to bars and children something we could really learn from.

From what I can see this looks like a great talk. Unfortunately I am dependent on subtitles and the subtitles on this video are very inaccurate, so much of what’s being said doesn’t make sense. It would be great if you could make these talks accessible to more people by getting them properly subtitled (professionally done not automatically generated).
