Welcome to my new podcast where each week I’ll be joined by leading coaches, athletes and educators from the world of sport and far beyond. On each episode I’ll go through my guests journey, their stories and compare with my own experiences coaching at the elite level, to pull out some greats tips and useful advice around all things performance and that often mentioned, but misunderstood word, culture. Currently I consult with some of the biggest sporting and corporate organisations in the world from Premier League Football teams to American Sporting institutions, but I’m probably best known for coaching the Fiji national rugby sevens team to world titles and the country’s first ever Olympic medal, a gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Of course I’ll draw on that amazing journey but also on the lessons I’ve learnt and the principles I’ve forged over the last 20 years working in professional sport - and that’s really what inspired me to star this podcast. I wanted to swap notes, glean tips and talk performance with some some amazing people. Writer and broadcaster Tom Fordyce is my first guest. We actually went to Cambridge University at the same time, but it wasn’t until my role coaching the England Rugby sevens team that our paths properly crossed. Tom was working as BBC Chief Sports writer, a job that he held for over 20 years and we’ve been friends ever since. Currently he stars in the extremely popular Peter Crouch Podcast and has now set up his own podcast network ( which includes shows like Death of a Sports Star, Death of a Rock Star and new show, We Didn’t Start The Fire - Tom actually ghost-wrote my book, Sevens Heaven and he’s also written many other great sports biographies. As I’ve said, in future weeks I’ll be joined by guests to find the signals that have propelled their own careers, but for this episode, Tom was good enough to help me explore some of the subjects that will come up over the course of this programme, from star players, enjoyment, managing egos, my concept of guardrails, experience, culture, use of technology and much, much more.
