Garden centre owners and their teams can now book their places for the conference. You will be able to hear from Clive on Tuesday, January 22.
Iain Wylie, Chief Executive of the GCA, explained: ?Sir Clive Woodward guided England to victory in the 2003 Rugby World Cup. He won 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.
?Clive will be speaking about the four attributes needed to create a winning team. Talent, teachability, pressure and will. Helpful points, which team leaders can take away with them and use in their garden centres.?
Early in his career Clive enjoyed success on the pitch. He won 21 caps as a player and twice touring with the British Lions. Clive also worked in business, first with Rank Xerox in the UK and Australia. He then became sales director of a leasing company within the Ford Group. This was before forming his own successful leasing operation.
Clive brought professionalism, cutting edge techniques and new management skills to English rugby.
After leaving rugby Clive became Director of Football at Southampton. He then joined the British Olympic Association with a mission to integrate coaches and athletes into Team GB.
London 2012 produced the most successful British performance of the modern era.
Iain added: ?Crafted to inspire, motivate and challenge, Clive?s presentations blend practical advice with inspiring videos from his career as a businessman, athlete and coach. It?s shaping up to be a momentous conference once again!?
