Sam Warburton OBE is the former Wales Rugby Captain.
Sam has had a rugby career like no other. He has set records and achievements which will be very hard for any other player to break, or even match.
Since becoming Wales’ youngest ever Captain at 22, Sam led them to their highest ever finish at the 2011 Rugby World Cup.
In total, Warburton won 74 caps for Wales including a record 49 as Captain.
His International career included leading Wales to another Rugby World Cup in 2015, captaining them to a Grand Slam in 2012 and their first back-to-back Six Nations Championship wins in over 30 years.
Even with his outstanding achievements for Wales, it’s perhaps as a British and Irish Lion he is best known.
As their youngest ever Captain at 24 for the 2013 Australia tour, Sam led the side to their first series win in 16 years. He became the first tour captain to taste victory since Martin Johnson in 1999.
Warren Gatland also named Sam as Captain for the 2017 tour to New Zealand, becoming just the second person in history to Captain the Lions on two tours.
Sam spent his entire professional career with Cardiff Blues, making his debut for his hometown region in April 2009.
In July 2018, the Wales and British and Irish Lions captain announced his retirement from rugby.
A popular Welsh rugby speaker, Sam Warburton is available for Q&A sessions and Motivational Keynote Speeches.
“Sam was able to make the link between sport and business, with leadership threading the two together”
“Aside from his speech, he was constantly interacting with guests and posing for pictures. It was great to have Sam in attendance and I would certainly recommend him for future events”
