Mr Will Carling (OBE) (SPK02575)
- United Kingdom
- Account Type:
Will Carling was England's youngest and, at that time, the world's most successful rugby captain, taking on the position at the age of 22 and steering his country to memorable back-to-back Grand Slam wins in 1991 and 1992 as well as the World Cup Final in 1991.
England's dramatic win in November 1993 against the All Blacks meant that Will has captained a winning team against each of the world's major rugby playing nations. Further success was enjoyed by England under his captaincy when they won the 1995 Five-Nations, Calcutta Cup and Grand Slam as well as reaching the World Cup semi-finals in South Africa.
From Sedbergh School and Durham University he was commissioned as a Lieutenant in the Royal Regiment of Wales before moving on to a marketing post with Mobil Oil in 1988. In 1991 he founded and became Managing Director of his own company to present training seminars to delegates in industry and commerce. By employing a combination of speakers with business and sporting backgrounds, his company emphasises the correlation between success in both fields.
After his rugby career ended he became a TV pundit on rugby union. He has also worked as a motivational speaker and in 2001 founded Will Carling Management Ltd, a corporate hospitality company.
As a business speaker in his own right, Will's philosophy is that people are capable of achieving far more than they do. By utilising motivational principles and encouraging personal development, he explains how companies can achieve the most from their key resource, the staff.
His presentations reflect the confidence generated by his captaincy of the England rugby team, experience as an Army Officer, his marketing role in a multi-national oil company and now as Managing Director of his own company. Will has a deserved reputation as a speaker of genuine warmth and humour who is also able to deliver a powerful message.
