Neville Maxwell, a two-time Olympian rower and multiple world champion medal winner, delivered a “tour de force” performance in conversation about the lessons from sports and how they can readily be applied in the business world. In a wide-ranging talk, Neville discussed leadership, goal setting, targets, stress management, time keeping, and how to turn people into winners. Drawing on his current leadership role in the High Performance unit in Rowing Ireland, he highlighted both the strong current position and the pipeline of talent coming through. One key takeaway, both for business management and sport, is the need to focus efforts and resources purely on areas of competitive advantage rather than spread across the waterfront.
