CMAE signs Inspirational Leader and Global Sports Ambassador to speak at European Conference 2024

CMAE is delighted to announce that Global Sports Ambassador, Inpirational Leader – and a former English rugby union player – Maggie Alphonsi MBE will be a keynote speaker at the CMAE European Conference on Club Management.

Maggie Alphonsi is the face of international women’s rugby and arguably one of the most well-known names in women’s team sports on the planet. Before announcing her international retirement in 2014, she represented her country an impressive 74 times, scored 28 tries, won a World Cup and helped England win a record breaking seven consecutive Six Nations crowns.

Through her England rugby career she has become a household name but also a media professional, and since retiring she has commentated on live rugby matches, and featured in a diverse array of media outlets, from Stella Magazine, to BBC’s Children in Need and The One Show.

She will be one of the keynote speakers at the European Conference held in London on 22-24 September 2024 and will share how delegates can create a winning mindset and be the best version of themselves. It will encourage them to step out of their comfort zones, be courageously brave and lead from the front. It will energize, motivate and inspire! Delegates will explore what kind of leader they want to be and how they can get the best out of their teams. The session will also take a deep dive into high performing teams and their key to success.
