As a former England youngster tipped for the top, Drewe, 40 , admits his career was dogged and undermined by soul searching and self-doubt. It culminated in the big centre-forward going into rehab for addictions and an emotional breakdown after retiring. Nowadays Drewe is putting his experiences to good use helping the next generation of players cope with the pressures and pitfalls of football. His knowledge and ability to nurture players has helped Drewe build a portfolio of clients including internationals and Premier League stars. Articulate Drewe has also become a go-to person for media to interview as more players start to publicly admit to mental health problems. Drewe believes it is the tip of an epidemic in the game which chews up and spits out talent when it is no longer useful or profitable. He has strong opinions he will share after seven years of guiding some of the nation’s best young footballers. In 2018 he also made his debut in the corporate world mentoring CEOs and senior management at three London corporations in the city on how to cope with pressure and improve performance. Many of his lessons in his book’s chapters on self-belief , ego , winning and vulnerability are as applicable to life and to business as they are football.
Today Drewe combines his mentoring work with pros with motivational speaking and his role as an ambassador for mental health charity Kaleidoscope.

Thankyou!

The power to be yourself is the greatest power of all. Thankyou to Drewe and the contributors so far through the book and the podcast for allowing me to see that.

I have Found peace, serenity and a sense of belonging within myself, alongside a passion, desire and inspiration to keep going and to keep believing, keep trusting the path, and to keep working hard. Thankyou.
