Adam Jones


Adam Jones is a highly sought-after sports speaker and former rugby union player who competed professionally. After starting his career with Neath, Adam boasted multiple successful seasons which concluded with him being chosen for the Welsh squad. Taking to the after-dinner circuit, Adam frequently discusses the behind the scenes strategies to maximising success.

In the 2003 Six Nations, Adam debuted with the Wales World Cup squad where he wore the number three shirt. Over the course of the tournament, he played in every game from Italy to England. In the following year, at the 2004 Six Nations, Adam continued his streak as a starting tighthead throughout the autumn internationals. In 2005, starting every single Wales game in the tournament, Adam was a leading figure in the Welsh Grand Slam-winning side.

After a successful 2006 season, Adam was then selected or his second World Cup. Responding to critics who pointed out his low scrummaging power, Adam developed his skills as a player and mental resilience as a person to produce a scrummaging style tailored to him. After such a drastic improvement, he was then chosen for the 2009 British and Irish Lions tour to South Africa. Leaning upon this experience in his public speaking, Adam offers tried and tested strategies for shaping and embracing your personal, unique skillset.

Over the next five years, Adam continued to feature in the Six Nations, Heineken Cup, Rugby World Cup and the 2013 British and Irish Lions tour to Australia. However, in 2015, Adam declared his retirement from international rugby competing, and complete retirement from active playing in 2018. Most notably, Adam achieved three Grand Slams over the course of his career.
