Each week, our colleague Maria Franzoni invites one of our keynote speakers to discuss their life, work, current projects and passions. We hope that hearing more about them will allow you to get a better understanding of who they are.

This week Maria’s guest on the show is Clive Woodward, the World Cup winning head coach who led England’s rugby players to World Cup glory in Australia in 2003. He himself is a former England international and British and Irish Lion. During Clive’s tenure as head coach, England moved from number 6 in the world to be the number 1 ranked team, winning every trophy an England team could win.

Please welcome Sir Clive Woodward
