Connecting Business – Growing Opportunities

David Sole OBE to deliver speech at Causeway event

David Sole OBE is a true leader, with career highlights including leading Scotland to their famous victory in the 1990 Rugby Grand Slam, co-founding the School for CEOs, and coaching executives in their leadership skills. We are delighted to announce that David will be speaking at the Causeway networking event in partnership with AM Bid on Tuesday 3rd March and looking forward to hearing his lessons on building high performing teams on and off the pitch.

David won 44 caps for the Scotland national team during his long tenure as player and captain. After leading Scotland to an incredible victory in the 1990 Grand Slam and to the Semi Finals of the 1991 Rugby World Cup, he was awarded the OBE for Services to Rugby Football in 1993.

His career in the business world continued with just as much confidence and success. Since 2000, he has established himself as an executive coach, and in 2011, he co-founded the School for CEOs to work with boards and leadership teams on creating and leading effective teams. In 2015, he co-authored his first book, 21st Century Networking – How to become a Natural Networker. He has been a board member for a number of high-profile companies, including being appointed Non-Executive Chairman of AM Bid in 2017 and joining the Board of Trustees at Worldwide Cancer Research in 2018.

David will be appearing at the upcoming Causeway event, Leadership: On the pitch and in the boardroom, at Murrayfield stadium on Tuesday 3rd, delivering a keynote speech sharing his expertise on building winning teams, both on the pitch and in the boardroom, with a particular focus on the transferable skills and learnings for business leaders.

In this 30th anniversary year of the famous 1990 Grand Slam winning Scotland rugby team captained by David, he will also discuss the ongoing 2020 Six Nations tournament, with particular focus on Scotland and Ireland’s recent performances and forthcoming fixtures. The event will conclude with a Q&A session, where David will take questions from the audience about his varied career in sport and business.

David Gray, Managing Director of AM Bid, said “We are delighted to partner with Causeway to host this exciting event, taking place at the home of Scottish rugby. As a proud member of Causeway, we value our relationship with our fellow members in both Scotland and in Ireland, and we are looking forward to an evening in great company with a fantastic keynote speaker in David Sole OBE. AM Bid has benefitted greatly from David’s expertise in leadership and business coaching, and I am certain that our guests on the night will take a huge amount away from David’s invaluable experiences, learnings and insights on building winning teams in sport and in business.”
