Renowned as one of the country’s best and most consistently inspiring motivational speakers, Dr Frank Dick OBE is the current President of the European Athletics Coaches Association, member of the IAAF Coaches Commission and Chair (and architect) of the IAAF Academy.

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.
His expertise derives from years of detailed research into individual success and achievement. Plus, with the recent launch of Loughborough University’s Institute of Excellence, a joint venture between the world-class sporting expertise of the University and its Business School, which aims to further cross the boundaries between sporting achievement and success in the corporate world, Frank’s involvement as Chair of the Institute’s Concept Board means even more commitment to bringing these two worlds together.
With a history of sporting excellence through coaching some of the best talent – Boris Becker and Daley Thompson, to name just two – Frank 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 can lead to individual and team progress simply by giving a different perspective.
For a number of years Dr Frank Dick OBE has been working with teams in business sharing his unique insight to coaching from his wealth of experience of coaching elite sports personalities. Frank’s workshops have helped to create a coaching climate within organisations across a variety of sectors. The coaching workshops enable managers and team members to learn practical skills which they can adopt to improve performance and develop potential.
Engaging and informative, Frank’s coaching workshops inspire and motivate people to be responsible for their own performance, their own development and the development of others. Whatever stage of our career or development, there is always a lot more to learn and the first step is acknowledging that we all need to be “coachable”. Frank highlights that we are all coaches, wherever we sit within an organisation. Managers and leaders of course have a special responsibility for the development of team members and Frank covers the styles and systems appropriate for different stages of development. Key elements Frank can cover include:
- Characteristics of World Class Coaches
