E5: Rugby, Business and High Performance, How to maximise growth in business - Charlie Hodgson
Connect with Charlie on LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/charlie-hodgson/ Charlies Hodgson's Professional Rugby Union credentials: Sale Sharks 11 years  Saracens 5 years  Top points scorer in premiership history  3 premiership titles 1 European cup title England 38 caps Highest ever individual points scorer in one match British Lions. NZ 2005 To find out more about - https://charliehodgsonperformance.com/ Charlie Hodgson is the founder and CEO of Charlie Hodgson Performance. His philosophy is based on 17 years at the top of professional rugby. From the organisational highs at Sale Sharks and Saracens, to the individual lows of international rugby, it is these unique experiences that have shaped his coaching approach and how they can be transferred to the business world. Throughout his rugby career, he had many ups and downs and admits that managing his emotions through those sticky periods was incredibly hard. Whether it was dealing with difficult colleagues, making decisions under pressure or a missed kick at goal when the result was in his hands, the daily struggle was real, and at times, hugely debilitating. And, it is no different to what you undoubtedly experience every day; Workplace politics, leading your team to deliver results, make hugely important decisions under extreme pressure or simply finding time for yourself and your family…that pressure to consistently perform can be just as lonely and clinical. He understands how hard that is for you and the subsequent stress that emerges. He has felt it, but most importantly, he can help you. He truly cares what you are going through, and is here to help you thrive. Following retirement from elite sport, he has gained the Institute of Leadership and Management Level 7 Qualification in Executive Coaching and Mentoring. He has completed a training series in Organisation and Relationship Systems Coaching (ORSC) and is now an officially licensed Mind5 Optimal Performance Leader.

E2: War, Ebola, Business and the Board Room - Words of Wisdom from Colonel Chris Gibson
Connect with Chris on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/chris-gibson-mbe-14770614/ Have a look at his website: https://www.sos-medical.co.uk/ Chris Gibson brings with him over 34 years of military experience. He has held leadership roles and key appointments throughout his career which have seen him serve on specialist military operations all over the world including 18 months in Beirut attempting to gain the release of Terry Waite, 12 months in Sarajevo on a Special Forces Team charge with the capture and arrest on indicted war criminals and 16 months in Sierra Leone during the civil war.  Further deployment on operations in Zaire, Uganda and Algeria brought many challenges. Having to lead the Close Protection operation in the Middle East during the 2nd Gulf War which saw him planning and leading the protection of various world leaders Chris moved on to further challenges that the military offered. Having graduated from NHS Staff College he has taken his inventive enthusiasm for adapting military leadership and wisdom for the wider benefit of enterprises such as the NHS.  Having gained a post-graduate award in Medical Simulation Management from Harvard University, Chris was appointed as the Chief Instructor of The Army Medical Services Training Centre, the world’s largest medical simulation centre. Whilst there he co-developed a training and assurance methodology for hospital care which has been adopted by American, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand militaries as international best practice.  Of recent Chris was given the task of leading on the development and delivery of a training model for military and NHS volunteers to combat the Ebola Virus Disease in West Africa. This was an irrefutable success which saw over 1200 personnel deploy appropriately trained and equipped for the rigour of delivering care in a West African jungle, for which he was awarded the MBE.  A known innovator, Chris was recently awarded The Health Service Journal Special Recognition Award, the first occasion this has been issued for his development of innovative solutions to healthcare this was latterly followed by Ideas UK as International Innovator of the Year 2017-18. Of late Chris has been the government lead on assisting London Ambulance Service NHS Trust out of Special Measures. He completed his assignment in September 2019 working as a Special Advisor to the Ministry of Justice as a Leadership and Cultural Advisor.  He works with various professional sporting teams and business groups on how to translate this positive philosophy into a winning capability. He remains much sought after as a keynote speaker on leadership and innovation by leading academic institutes.
