Everyone has those difficult blank moments sometimes.

Whether in your personal life, career, relationship, or in a public situation, writer's block, social anxiety, imposter syndrome, being off-form or having an identity crisis can affect anyone at any time. It's part of the human condition and yet it can throw us off course and make us feel helpless.

Giles Paley-Phillips and Jim Daly host an informal, insightful podcast in which they chat to well-known people from comedy, acting, writing, broadcasting, politics and sports about their careers and how they get through these moments when things aren't going to plan

    Ollie Phillips

    Ollie Phillips

    Ollie Phillips is a former World 7s Player of the Year and England captain, who also played rugby union at the highest domestic level in England and France.
    Ollie was forced into retirement at 29 through injury, which left him searching for meaning and not understanding his new focus or purpose.

    Ollie joined PWC as a director within the real estate and construction team – but then developed Imposter Syndrome. He now runs Optimist Performance, a company specialising in performance coaching, leadership, and behavioural change www.optimistperformance.com

    Ollie learnt a lot from his struggles as he transitioned and adapted from rugby player to where he is now. He has placed his focus on developing an ‘Attitude of Gratitude’ and wants to help people realise that it is possible to be grateful for what you have and the benefits that come from becoming comfortable with being uncomfortable.

    Ollie has found that his many adventures around the world have helped. He’s claimed world records, climbed Everest and Kilimanjaro and raised millions of pounds for charity. His adventures also gave him something to focus on, be distracted by and helped transition from the reality of no longer being a rugby player.
