One of the world’s leading performance coaches is holding a webinar with Irish athletes and coaches this weekend.

Dave Alred is an elite performance coach who has worked with some of the world’s top sportspeople - most notably former rugby World Cup winner Jonny Wilkinson, former World rugby player of the year Johnny Sexton. He brought golfer Luke Donald to world No 1, and he’s also worked with Major golf winners such as Pádraig Harrington and Francesco Molinari.

Wilkinson, the star of England’s 2003 Rugby World Cup win, has said in the past: “Dave Alred is a genius, he changed my life.”

He’s also worked with the England rugby team over four World Cups, the British and Irish Lions for three tours, the Springboks, the England cricket team, and Premier League champions Manchester City. He holds a PhD in Performing under Pressure from Loughborough University and is the author of “The Pressure Principle”. Alred is currently coaching New Zealand outhalf Beauden Barrett.

Irish sport management agency, Sport Endorse have organised the talk to help their clients who include the likes of Ireland and Sheffield United centre back John Egan, GAA players such as Dublin’s Dean Rock and Damien Comer, AFLW star Orla O’Dwyer, Irish rugby international James Lowe, and rowing World Champion Sanita Puspure.

Alred told the platform: “I’ve been lucky enough to work with Padraig Harrington, Ronan O’Gara and Johnny Sexton and I’m really looking forward to sharing my experiences.”
