One of the greatest rugby players of all time and a legend in his own lifetime, Martin Offiah joins us with stories from his life and career, tips for building a winning mindset, and advocacy for the green revolution.
Nicknamed “Chariots” Offiah for his extraordinary speed, immortalised as a statue outside Wembley Stadium, widely considered one of the greatest entertainers British sport has ever produced: there has never been an athlete like Martin Offiah. He holds the record for the most tries scored in an England shirt and racked up 20 cup-winning medals in a 14-year career in England and Australia.
Since retiring from professional sport, he has taught individuals how to achieve their goals in life and how to transform themselves physically – alongside Olympic medallist Jamie Baulch. He is also a passionate advocate of social issues, from diversity and inclusion to the transition to a sustainable, Net Zero future, and is a brand ambassador for both Net Zero Week 2021 and EV charging infrastructure business Connected Kerb.
Like elite athletes striving in practice to do better and never stop learning, Martin says “We all need to play our part in reducing carbon emissions to protect our planet” – and in this livestream conversation, Martin will explore what we can do as individuals, communities, and organisations to tackle climate change #OurGreatestPursuit.
In association with Net Zero Week 2021, the UK’s national awareness week that aims to inspire us all on our shared journey towards a net zero carbon society.
