Josh is a unique man. He has won the rugby world cup, graduated from Sandhurst, serving as an officer in the Royal Artillery and took on the challenge to climb Everest. He’s also worked as a Management Consultant with 14 years business experience, including roles at PwC, Citigroup and Head of Rugby at the Welsh Rugby Union.
This is man with drive and focus who understands how to achieve success. Not only does he know about winning and losing from his immensely successful period as a professional rugby player, but he has the knowledge from the military and climbing that if you don’t work as a team, don’t prepare, don’t listen, don’t adapt to changes going on around you, death is a reality.
In 2003 he has a key player in England’s world cup campaign that saw Clive Woodard’s team hoist the trophy. Still in great form in 2005, Josh toured with the legendary British & Irish Lions to New Zealand scoring two tries in 5 minutes against the Bay of Plenty.
Josh speaks about preparation & execution, intelligence under pressure, building a high performance team and comparing organization effectiveness in military and sport, all of which can be applied to the business setting.
