The motivational talks I give include how I conquered communication and the severe lack of confidence that complete dysfluency had given me as a child through to my role as CEO of a London stock market company that had its fair share of ups and downs but was very public in its transactions, respected and ultimately successful.
En route I have worked with some of the biggest sports stars in the world such as Diego Maradona and Lord Sebastian Coe, managed the off pitch activities of the England Football Team for 10 years ultimately creating ‘Team England’ which is the vehicle used by the Football Association and the England Football Team to this date; I was the first commercial representative of the England Cricket Team, once again managing their off field activities for some 6 years leaving the framework for the Test and County Cricket Board to manage. I also managed the commercial affairs of the Welsh National Rugby Team who did not win one game during my tenure!!
