Elite coach development manager for British Swimming, Former British Lion

Nigel Redman made his England rugby debut against Australia when he was 19, and won his 20th and final cap against Australia 13 years later. He also captained the Lions in South Africa.

After retiring from playing Nigel was appointed National Academy coach, part of the main coaching body of the England team and also as a commentator for Sky TV.

He also worked with premiership football coaches, and summer and winter Olympic coaches through UK Sport before being appointed elite coach development manager for British Swimming in readiness for Rio 2016. Nigel was integral part of the rejuvenation of Team GB swimming as the team achieved six medals at the Rio Olympics (one gold and five silvers). Nigel is now planning strategies for success in Tokyo in 2020.

Nigel is an excellent speaker with a host of humorous anecdotes for after dinner speaking. Nigel can also be highly recommended for motivational speaking at conferences — his role in top level performance coaching makes him an ideal choice for a wide range of businesses and organisations on a range of themes including leadership, teamwork and improving performance.
