Sport for Business Leadership Interviews – Niall Woods

Niall Woods has personal experience of living with changed circumstance having stepped from being a professional rugby player to running the Rugby Players Association and then setting up Navy Blue Sports.

“At each of those points I’ve taken a 75 per cent cut in income, and then an initial 60 per cent cut so I can speak to clients who are facing that on a temporary basis with a good sense of how we can cope with what we might not have seen coming.”

“A part of being a good agent is being a mentor and almost a second father to some, but everyone is different and I have to pick up on how each of those we work with is handling things.”

The power of good advice, the enjoyment of negotiation and a view on when sport is likely to return all feature in this morning’s interview with Woods, the latest in our Sport for Business Leadership Series.
