Join us for an evening of inspirational networking with Rory Underwood MBE
The former England rugby star and RAF officer will share his career journey and insight with serving and former officers. He will offer practical advice and insight on how you can fulfil your potential and achieve your professional goals when considering your second career after leaving the Armed Forces.
Rory is best known for his international rugby career. Not only for scoring a record 49 tries for England (85 caps, 1984-1996) but also for winning 6 caps for the British Lions touring Australia (1989) and New Zealand (1993). Rory played first class rugby at Leicester Tigers for an unbelievable 14 years and was awarded the MBE in 1992 for his services to rugby. Rory joined the Board of Leicester Tigers as a non-executive Director in Nov 2007.
He was responsible for introducing Crew Resources Management (CRM) training into the RAF, thereby developing a culture where personnel look at how teamwork and decision making is effected in time limited stressful situations. He is an experienced facilitator, psychometric profiler and performance coach.
Rory combines a wealth of experience from international sport, the military, extreme human achievement and a tried and tested formula of personal and team development to create processes for individuals, teams and organisations to inspire performance.
Who should attend:
We will bring serving and former officers, supporters and key local businesses together to provide an opportunity to build connections, share knowledge and benefit from hearing Rory’s approach to post military career success. This event is also open to spouses.
