One Moorgate Place

This JLA Speakers Breakfast examined reaching the very top of your field, and the psychological toll that pressure and expectation can bring, with one of the greatest rugby union players of all time, Jonny Wilkinson.

Jonny Wilkinson is known to rugby fans and non-fans alike as the man that won England the World Cup with his dramatic drop goal in the dying moments of the final. He remained a key part of the England team for another eight years, during good times and bad. At the same time his club career also thrived and he established himself as a cornerstone of Toulon’s European Championship side, and possibly the most popular Englishman in France. Today he writes, coaches, and speaks about his personal struggles with stress and is passionate about raising awareness of mental health issues.
