I was honoured recently to be asked by Kevin Green to speak at his London Scaleup event.  Also on the stage was Clive Woodward.

Like anyone with a pulse, the idea of what he achieved with the England Rugby team makes me stand up straighter and pay attention.

The story he told about how he got his team to win is pretty well known, but the slant on technology was what caught my ears (and heart).

Whoever Wins in IT tends to Win

Recruiters all over the globe, paralysed by options and given instructions to “get on the phone” are under-performing – and in a market which is saturated with technology designed to find “purple squirrels”.

So when Clive Woodward tells 100 recruitment leaders at the REC that he gives men with thumbs the size of my 4 year old’s fist a laptop and sports analytics software Prozone I’m very excited!  He tells us that this was a major factor in their winning the world cup.
