Shane Williams MBE

Welsh Rugby Legend

Welsh rugby speaker and player Shane Williams MBE is known for his almost ten years at the Swansea based team The Ospreys. Embarking on his rugby career in the mid 1990’s Williams was a versatile player able to play in both the flank and scrum-half positions; turning professional in 1998 Williams went on to play for his country on an international level including appearances at the 1999-2000 Six Nations and the 2003 World Cup.

However his greatest achievement remains that of the two Grand Slam wins in both the 2005 and 2008 Six Nations. Williams looks back on these incidents fondly as well as sharing training and skills development tips with his audience in his capacity as an after dinner speaker.

Retiring from the national team in 2013 Shane Williams MBE has gone on to become a sports speaker and pundit for Welsh television; appearing as the rugby speaker on SC4’s Six Nations coverage and on a number of BBC rugby broadcasts Williams is quickly gaining a great deal of experience as a professional sports speaker. Outside his work in the media Shane Williams MBE also works as a rugby speaker at specialist sporting and corporate events. He has been called upon to provide insight into some of the most high profile games in the rugby calendar as well as work as an anecdotal after dinner speaker for rugby enthusiasts at private functions.
