Dr Frank Dick OBE
Frank Dick is renowned as one of the country’s best and most consistently inspiring motivational speakers. Currently President of the European Athletics Coaches Association, Member of the IAAF Coaches Commission, as well as Chair (and architect) of the IAAF Academy, Frank has combined his talent for inspiring sporting achievement with the business world.
By recognising the synergy between effective coaching techniques on the playing field and in the office, over the years he has developed a range of inspirational keynote speech themes, workshop topics and bespoke employee development programmes that remain as popular and relevant today as ever. Frank’s work in this area resulted him being listed in the ‘100 Best Speakers in Britain’. His expertise derives from years of detailed research into individual success and achievement. Frank combines this wealth of knowledge and experience into an informative and motivational approach to achieving long-lasting transformation of both individual and team performance.
With a history of sporting excellence through coaching some of the best talent - Boris Becker and Daley Thompson, to name just two - he has, over the past 15 years of speaking to 100’s of companies both in the UK and around the world, recognised six key areas of personal and professional development that, once taken out of a “training room” mentality and put into a different context, can lead to individual and team progress simply by giving a different perspective. Frank's contribution to sport and coaching has been recognised in being awarded an OBE in 1989, induction to the UK Coaches Hall of Fame in 1999 and the prestigious title "UK Sporting Hero" by Sport UK in 2001.

In my experience the impact of guest speakers in your arena tends to dissipate very quickly when the troops get back to work, but I feel very confident that your extraordinary talented delivery will make its mark permanently" NCB Stockbrokers Ireland
