Alumni duo launch rugby focused coaching and mentoring business

Alex Laybourne and Paul Westgate have joined forces to launch a new business, Inspiring Coaching.

Inspiring Coaching has been set up with the aim of informing, connecting, and supporting aspirational rugby coaches in reaching their potential.

Alex and Paul are offering a bespoke service for coaches to develop personally and professionally and will work alongside their networks of rugby coaches to support members of the new platform.

The duo will also draw on their own extensive experiences as coaches and mentors.

During his career, Paul (Government & Language 1982) has led and managed the England Rugby Level 4 Coaching Award Course, has been a Senior Coach Developer and Coach Educator delivering on the England Rugby Coaching Award courses and is a Level 5 England Rugby Coach.

Alex (Psychology 2009) is the current international Head Coach for Sweden and Director of Rugby for The Lambs. He has also got experience working with Scotland Women U20s, an independent school and has a Level 3 England Rugby Coaching Award.

Members of Inspiring Coaching can access content ranging from coaching practice to tactical analysis delivered by the alumni and other coaching professionals. Content is delivered online via webinars and conferences and members can also benefit from one-to-one sessions with experts.

The alumni duo will hold their first Inspiring Coaches conference at Loughborough University in June 2021.
