2015 U.K. CDO Summit Featured Speaker Sir Clive Woodward

Sir Clive Woodward OBE, the head coach who led England’s team in their 2003 World Cup victory in Australia, will be the Featured Speaker at the 2nd annual U.K. CDO Summit in London on 7th October 2015 at 30 Euston Square and presented by Accenture Strategy.

“Sir Clive Woodward’s legendary leadership and team building skills have resulted in victory in his efforts both on and off the field, in business and in sport” said David Mathison, CEO of the CDO Summit and CDO Club. “His management methods transcend sport, and this is exactly what Chief Digital Officers need to know to lead effective teams, manage large projects, and implement agile development methodologies.”

As featured speaker at the U.K. CDO Summit, Woodward’s topic will be “The DNA of a Champion – Talent Alone is Not Enough.”

Based on the notion that “Great Teams Are Made of Great Individuals” Clive has identified four criteria which he believes characterise a champion individual or team in both business and sport. ‘The DNA of a Champion’ details each of these criteria, and also how they can be coached to achieve high performing teams.

During Woodward’s tenure as Head Coach from 1997-2004, England moved from 6th in the world to being the number one ranked team, led England in their 2003 World Cup victory in Australia, and helped transition the team from the amateur era into the professional one.

In 2004 Woodward released Winning!, an autobiography that was named sports book of the year by The Sunday Times.

He is currently the Chairman and Founder of Captured – an online coaching software and synchronised app based on his coaching philosophy currently being adopted by The FA, The PGA and The IOC.

The app reflects the importance Clive places on empowering individuals to take responsibility for their own learning by capturing and sharing knowledge to achieve high performance.

To share in this intimate meeting and learn the secrets of leadership from Sir Clive Woodward, be sure to reserve your seat now for the 2nd annual U.K. CDO Summit on 7 October 2015 at 30 Euston Square.
