Andy served for 16 years as Surgeon Commander in the Royal Navy. He was fortunate to undertake formal leadership and management training throughout his career and worked in clinical medicine, unit audit and change management and organizational change. His experience in performance review, reporting structures, executive summary and outcome-based intervention is unique in a sports medicine environment.

Too often, Elite sports teams are built on specific skill sets without thought as to the Management structure or organisational optimisation. Andy speaks eloquently on team management, organizational structure and the application to elite sport in marginal gains.



Discussing who should lead a team, how the cost savings can be applied, prevention of excessive expenditure on gadgets and unnecessary technology, how to avoid being sold a must have’ application and the application of pure science rather than fad science to your environment.

Covering organizational frameworks from Lencioni to Nelson, Google to Rolls Royce and Branson to Collins you will take home a message directly applicable to your environment or organization.

Now for some military History,

On the 21st October 1905 the British fleet formed in 2 parallel columns, the 1st led by HMS Victory and the second by Collingwood’s Royal Sun. there were 27 ships of the line with 6 extras and 18k men, in the Franco-Spanish fleet there were 33 ships of the line with 13 extras and 33K men. Nelson believed in the delegated leadership of his ‘Band of Brothers’ his Performance team – by delegating authority to his team they elected to split the Ships of the line .

Typically in naval battle one engaged an enemy fleet in a single line of battle parallel to the enemy, so that you could maximise the fields of fire and target areas and make easier signalling .


Don’t be afraid to throw out things you have done, equally particularly common in elite sport today is taking on a technology or process because it appears all the other teams are doing it.

It is the Nelsons unafraid to sail against the tide who will prosper
