England Rugby coach delivers leadership lessons

Shaun Wane, the coach of the England national rugby league team, has delivered a masterclass in leadership at a special pair of special events hosted by EKM.

Ecommerce specialist EKM invited the Grand Final-winning former head coach of the Wigan Warriors to its headquarters, which feature a fully-equipped auditorium designed to host business events.

For the talk, Shaun drew on his experiences from being expelled from high school through to winning the highest honours in domestic rugby league and his recent appointment as head coach of the England rugby league team.

He shared advice on bringing together teams from diverse backgrounds, the importance of setting standards and communicating expectations, and how to lead like a coach to get the best from teams.

Antony Chesworth, founder of EKM, said: “Shaun Wane is a fantastic example of reaching the very top of your profession even in the face of adversity.

“His background in sport gave all of our delegates a new perspective on leading teams, but the lessons he shared were all transferable to business life and I have no doubt that delegates who attended the event have been given knowledge to enable them reach new levels of success.

"EKM’s mission is to empower people to make their dreams a reality, but the tools to sell online are only a part of the skill set required to be successful. Seminars such as these help people with the wider aspect of running a business and we’re thrilled to have guests of the calibre of Shaun Wane contributing to that."
