It is late 2013. Ben Ryan, a red-haired, 40-something, spectacle-wearing Englishman, is given 20 minutes to decide whether he wants to coach Fiji's rugby sevens team, with the aim of taking them to the nation's first-ever Olympic medal. He has never been to Fiji. There has been no discussion of contracts or salary. He says yes - and plays his part in writing history. As one of the most successful rugby coaches in the history of the game and the man who took Fiji to rugby sevens Olympic gold in Rio 2016, Ben's insights into authentic leadership and high performance cultures are in demand from corporate leaders and organizations wanting to unlock success through maximizing human potential.
"Ben came to Boston to speak at our company's leadership team event. What a story this man has, and he tells it in a way that audiences were glued. He's a down-to-earth guy with an out-of-this-world tale to tell."
"Ben gave a brilliant speech; he achieved complete audience buy-in and absolutely delivered on the message we were trying to convey to our business. This is something we can all learn from and deliver into our business going forward on a daily basis."
"Our audience was tired of hearing about tech, and Ben's messages about leadership through telling his story were really meaningful to the audience. If I had known he is on the Fijian currency, I would have acquired some and had him sign it!"
"Ben was excellent and a great fit for our group and event. He was obviously well prepared and took into account our brief for the event. Only positive feedback from the group as a whole!"
"We had a great amount of positive feedback on Ben's speech. We also received a number of comments about how well mannered and polite the Fiji team was. I can see this is a direct reflection of the leadership they are receiving from Ben."
