Will Greenwood is a former England, British Lions, and Rugby World Cup Winner and an inspirational and motivational speaker on leadership and team-ship.

He is widely regarded as one of England’s greatest ever rugby players, as well as one of the sport’s most engaging, intelligent, and entertaining characters.

A brilliantly funny after-dinner speaker, Will can shed light on the more serious lessons learned from a career in elite sport.

We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.

He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.

I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.
