Former England rugby player and World Cup hero. He is a regular match day presenter for Sky and co-founder of a travel business. Will is both an entertaining after dinner speaker and effective motivational speaker much in demand in the UK and internationally.
Will Greenwood is one of England’s greatest ever rugby players as well as one of the sport’s most engaging, intelligent, outspoken and witty characters. He made his international debut in 1997 and amassed 55 caps scoring 30 tries, the second highest in English history. Will’s Daily Telegraph newspaper column and his work as a pundit on Sky Sports are always very well received. He was the co-presenter of the School of Hard Knocks Sky TV series which highlighted the work of the charity by the same name – which uses the game of rugby and other challenging activities to teach participants life lessons and values, initially designed to allow them to take forward steps into the world of employment. Will was invited to join the IRB’s assessors as England’s representative for its player-of-the-year award.
Will also does corporate work for a number of businesses including financial institutions – having operated on the trading floor in his amateur rugby days. He is also the co-founder of a travel business. His experiences both in business and on the pitch have enabled audiences to get a fantastic insight to the synergy between top level sport and top level business.
He is an engaging, intelligent and witty speaker both for after dinner and conference motivational presentations.
“Will did the final session at one of our strategy days. He spoke about his rugby experiences and the messages he imparted had clear parallels to business life. The passion and emotion that he genuinely felt really hit the mark and provided us with a very memorable and uplifting end to the day.” WJS
