We were truly delighted to meet New Zealand All black Legend Dan Carter at the Sporting Club for lunch yesterday. The event began with a drinks reception offering the opportunity to meet Dan personally and have a photograph taken as well as networking with other guests. This was followed by lunch and a Q&A with rubgy legend Dan Carter.

Dan played 115 times for the All Blacks and scored a world record of 1,598 international points. He has two World Cup victories and was man of the match in the 2015 world cup final. He is also a three times Super Rugby winner, a record-equalling three times world player of the year and the greatest number ten in the history of rugby. A truly incontestable status of legendary sportsman!

It was fascinating to hear Dan discuss the secrets for his success. He used two key drives: an unshakeable commitment to training (ensuring he’d always be picked first for the team!) and an ability to surround himself with world class experts, be they in coaching, psychology, nutrition, sports injury, or other relevant fields, and apply their advice. This resonated with us as we also consult with leading experts and use their advice to shape our operations and the service we offer to clients. Dan’s story was great for seeing how expert advice can be applied, trialled and refined for maximum success.
