    Aidan McCullen Part 2 - There’s Nothing In A Caterpillar, That Tells You It’s Going To Be A Butterfly

    Aidan McCullen Part 2 - There’s Nothing In A Caterpillar, That Tells You It’s Going To Be A Butterfly

    Today’s show is the second of a three-part series with former rugby player, turned exec coach, podcaster and writer, Aidan McCullen.

    Last week we talked about nutrition and breathing and how he is ever-evolving as a father and husband by learning new things each week and this week we discuss Aidan’s playing career, from being capped with Ireland, Leinster, his arrival in France with first Dax and then his dream club, Toulouse before finishing his career in England with London Irish.

    He’s so good to chat too and in this episode we cover topics such as discipline vs talent, manifestation, which I’m a big believer in and the role of mentors which is also something we delve even deeper into next week in the third and final part, but we started by Aidan talking about one of the great minds of the 20th century.

    Aidan McCullen Part 1 - If It Takes Slower To Get There, It’ll Last Longer

    Aidan McCullen Part 1 - If It Takes Slower To Get There, It’ll Last Longer

    Aidan McCullen played professional rugby for over a decade, including huge clubs like Leinster and Toulouse and was capped by Ireland too, but since his playing days he has transformed himself into one of life’s great learners and communicators. From hosting his own amazing podcast 'The Innovation Show', which is listened to by none other than Bill Gates, to lecturing, coaching executives and writing his first book, Undisruptable, we dip into lessons learnt from all of those facets of his life as well as his role as father to his two young sons, which you’ll hear has been informative in more ways than one, but we start with a question that Aidan has recently started to ask himself.

    Alice Dearing - You Thrive When Surrounded By Good People

    Alice Dearing - You Thrive When Surrounded By Good People

    For today’s show, I chat to an athlete who's just returned from her first Olympic Games , open water swimmer, Alice Dearing. When we met in a small park in Camberley in the south of England, she was still unpacking all of what she’s been through from being part of the hugely successful team GB to her first Olympic final and how she would approach it again. It was fascinating to listen to her talk about all of that, how she deals with the ridiculously early morning training and volume as well as the sheer danger involved in swimming in open water. Alice is also Great Britain’s first female black swimmer and we talk about that as we close our chat but we start with me asking her how she’s dealing with her time off and not being in a strict regime.

    Tom Mitchell Part 2 - How Putting Your Plate Away Can Lead To The Team Scoring More Goals

    Tom Mitchell Part 2 - How Putting Your Plate Away Can Lead To The Team Scoring More Goals

    It’s the second part of the chat I had, walking through Richmond Park in South London, with Olympic Silver Medallist and England and Team GB Rugby Sevens Captain at both the Rio and Tokyo Olympic Games, Tom Mitchell. We discuss building values from day one, putting time into relationships, confidence and lack of it and life after professional sport, but we started by speaking about how do you convince an athlete that filling in a questionnaire or turning up on time for a meeting is eventually going to help you win the game or win the tournament.

    Tom Mitchell Part 1 - Excitement And Fear Walk The Path Hand-In-Hand

    Tom Mitchell Part 1 - Excitement And Fear Walk The Path Hand-In-Hand

    Tom Mitchell, Olympic Silver Medallist and England and Team GB Rugby Sevens Captain at both the Rio and Tokyo Olympic Games is this week's guest.

    It really was a great conversation and having originally given Tom his international debut when I coached him with England, we had well over a decade of collective experiences to unravel and explore.

    Recorded during a sunny walk through Richmond Park in South London, Tom talks about his return from the Tokyo Olympics and missing out on a medal after claiming silver in Rio five years earlier, Injuries, disappointments and more. We really get stuck into his leadership and the style he prefers both giving and receiving as well as tools he uses to stay present and be as authentic as he can, but we started with his views on mindfullness after he posted a series of stories about the subject on Instagram.

    Jeremy Snape - There's A Lot Of Things You Can Do If Your Radar's Up

    Jeremy Snape - There's A Lot Of Things You Can Do If Your Radar's Up

    As a cricketer, Jeremy Snape achieved international honours with England as well as captaining county side Leicestershire, but it’s perhaps for his work in sports performance that he’s best known for these days. Post playing career Jeremy founded Sporting Edge, a company specialising in inspiring individuals, leaders and teams to deliver their best and this was the crux of the conversation when we met.

    Jeremy was great company and his wealth of experience energised the conversation. We had a fascinating chat covering so many topics within performance, narrowing in on the mental side, through to the performance of teams, athletes and managing Mavericks, but we started by talking about selflessness and as the perfect example, a group called the ‘Rivonia 8’ the name given to those that were sentenced alongside Nelson Mandela, to serve a large part of their lives in prison on Robben Island.
