Guest speaker - Martin Bayfield, Former England Rugby Player
At 6'10" Martin Bayfield was one of the tallest men in rugby, a gift he used to full advantage as one of England's most potent forwards. After retiring, his height helped him secure the part of Robbie Coltrane's body double as the giant Hagrid in the Harry Potter films.
Martin's brush with Hollywood was the start of a new career, with more acting roles and a move into TV presenting. He's since become an established member of the BT Sport and ITV Sport commentary teams. He's fronted coverage of the NFL and The World's Strongest Man contest, and joined the presenting team on Crimewatch. He's even tried his comedic skills at the Edinburgh Fringe.
A natural and accomplished host and a hugely entertaining speaker, with impeccable comic timing. Martin appeals to all audiences. He covers serious points on how teams operate and individuals thrive when they are encouraged to push the boundaries of their responsibilities. He also recounts entertaining tales from the rugby pitch to the film set to the police force.
