Rugby After Dinner Speaker | Guest Appearance Rugby Dinner

Wayne is a well-established and popular keynote and after dinner speaker, with hundreds of corporate and fundraising events
under his belt.

Former Rugby Speaker of the Year, he has all manner of stories to tell from his upbringing in the Forest of Dean and
all the way through his journey from grass roots to professional rugby - through extraordinary highs to challenging lows - and his
hard-earned experience of four Rugby World Cups and beyond.


From frozen pitches and abandoned test matches, to judgement calls that changed his life, the funniest players (and the most
difficult), attempts at bribery and having to leaving the stadium in disguise in the back of an ambulance - Wayne has seen it all.

With relationships in football, cricket, tennis and many more, his insight into the challenges faced by global sport is detailed, and
he shares funny, informative and sometimes unbelievable insight from behind the scenes at some of sport’s biggest competitions.

Cheating, fighting, death threats, controversy, failure and success - Wayne has been there, and with a first book and podcast on
the way, has many stories to tell.
