Eddie Jones, England Rugby head coach, will be in Nantwich on the evening of Monday 6th December to talk about his latest book, ‘Leadership: Lessons From My Life in Rugby’.
Eddie Jones led the England Rugby Union team to the 2019 World Cup final. He took Australia to the 2003 World Cup final as well, and masterminded Japan’s famous victory over South Africa in 2015 – one of the biggest upsets in sport. He was also the assistant coach for South Africa when they won the 2007 World Cup.
Leadership: Lessons From My Life in Rugby, Jones’ second book following ‘My Life and Rugby’, has been written with Donald McRae, two-time winner of the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award, and is billed as “the ultimate rugby book about what it takes to be the best”.
For the first time, Eddie Jones shows just what it takes to be a leader in a high performance and high pressure environment and how these lessons can be applied to every walk of life, from coaching the U9 rugby team to leading a multinational organisation to simply doing your job better. Drawing on stories of nearly 30 years of coaching, including the 2003, 2007, 2015 and 2019 World Rugby campaigns, the full story of England’s 2021 Six Nations campaign as well as why it takes humour, humility and relentless curiosity to lead an eclectic mix of superstars from Maro Itoje to James Haskell, George Smith to Kyle Sinckler to create teams that are relentlessly hungry to win, Leadership: Lessons From My Life in Rugby is the ultimate rugby book about what it takes to be the best.
Eddie Jones in conversation will take place at Malbank School on Welsh Row in Nantwich on Monday 6th December 2021 (doors open at 6:30pm for a 7pm start). Tickets are £20 per person which includes a copy of Leadership: Lessons From My Life in Rugby. Cash bar available.
A representative from Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge said: “We are really excited to welcome Eddie Jones to Nantwich. As a rugby family we are all looking forward to meeting him. Tickets are selling really fast, so we urge you to get yours as soon as possible to avoid disappointment, as seating is limited.”
