27th February 2020 — Allistair is recognised as one of the world's leading figures in human performance, team culture and leadership. He has worked with numerous high-profile athletes (including Olympians and Grand Slam Champions) and organisations, written three bestselling books, and travelled the globe delivering keynote speeches.

During his visit to Bede’s, Allistair spoke with the School’s Sports Scholars and Sixth Formers about how best to optimise their potential – in sport and beyond. Key messages included the importance of exceeding expectations by doing more than asked, instilling discipline to reach your goals, and fostering a positive and motivational attitude for the benefit of yourself and your team.

Mr Peter Goodyer, Headmaster at Bede’s, comments, “It was a pleasure to welcome Allistair McCaw to our school; his talks were engaging, inspiring and truly motivational, and I am sure that our pupils will remember his wise words for a long time to come.”
