Sir Clive Woodward Launches the London Sporting Club in the City in Spectacular Style

Sir Clive Woodward Launches the London Sporting Club in the City in Spectacular Style

The London Sporting Club moved into its second premises yesterday with a spectacular lunch with Sir Clive Woodward. The man who led England to rugby world cup glory in 2003 and subsequently worked closely with the British Olympic teams during the golden Beijing and London Olympic Games was our star guest as the London Sporting Club in the City was born at the Capital Club in Abchurch Lane. 

During a captivating 40 minute interview Sir Clive took us through his amazing career including managing England to winning the 2003 world cup, leading the British & Irish Lions, being Director of Football at Southampton and then working for the British Olympic Association for 3 Olympic Games, including the Vancouver Winter Games as well in 2010. With a mixture of funny anecdotes and strong business messages, Sir Clive was every bit as good as we all knew he would be, leaving a packed Wallbrook Grill room at the Capital Club wanting more. Thanks go to him, as well as to Olympic hockey gold medallist Crista Cullen, world 400m champion Jamie Baulch and England cricket star Nick Compton, who also attended.
