  • What gives the world's best leaders the edge?

    Will Greenwood is best known for being an integral part of the 2003 Rugby World Cup-winning team. Ben Fennell has spent over 16 years helping the world's biggest businesses and brands grow. Together, they have established that world-class performance - in both business and sport - requires a fresh approach, and a new set of behaviours.

    Having spoken to inspirational leaders across all areas of business and sport, including Michael Johnson, Tanni Grey-Thompson, Rio Ferdinand, Dame Carolyn McCall, Dave Lewis and Sir Clive Woodward, the authors have identified the key characteristics of world-class performance. These guiding principles of celebrating difference, forging togetherness and accelerating growth constitute a new framework for modern leadership.

    Packed with insightful personal stories, and often painfully learnt lessons, Will and Ben offer a new playbook for world-class leadership, learning and growth.

After reading Economics at Durham University, Will worked in the city before becoming a professional rugby player. He remains the second highest try scorer in English rugby history, and helped power England to victory at the Rugby World Cup in 2003. Since retiring from rugby, Will has become one of the UK's leading broadcasters and commentators on the game. He pens a weekly column for the Saturday Telegraph, and Will recently combined his love of numbers and his passion for working with young people, to take up a voluntary role as a part-time maths teacher at Wellington College. Will also coaches club rugby at Maidenhead RFC.
