About Optimist Performance

“Since I retired from professional rugby I’ve been fortunate to get involved in a number of life-changing challenges. Like my rugby, they’ve taught me huge amounts about leadership, team-building and managing change in adversity.

Working at PWC, I’ve also learnt how powerful these intangibles can be in the world of business when they’re harnessed into words, values and actions to create a winning culture.

And that’s why I’ve set up Optimist – to impart that same knowledge and help other businesses & teams exceed their potential.”
