WHEN: Wednesday January 12, 5.30pm
ESAI members will have a wonderful opportunity to get together and meet Scott Robertson, one of the most colourful and successful faces in New Zealand rugby.
Scott may have been born and raised in the Bay of Plenty, but he will always be a much-loved adopted son of Canterbury after winning numerous national and Super Rugby titles with Canterbury and Crusaders teams as player and as coach after arriving here 25 years ago.
Being part of so many terrific teams, but also many heart-breaking losses, “Razor” will have endless stories to share, his thoughts on what made those teams tick, what their success formula was, and most importantly, how they coped with set-backs.
Running a professional rugby franchise is like running an agricultural business, and many of his experiences will relate to the ups and downs you all deal with in your days on the farm.
The pressures of trying to balance work and family is one of the biggest challenges you have in common with Razor, and the psychological pressures this creates in our lives.
Coming from a male-dominated industry, not unlike farming, many professional rugby players and coaches struggle to admit when they are not coping and when they need help, so Scott will share his thoughts about having the courage to reach out to family and friends, and how to look out for your mates who may be struggling.
Aside from this serious issue, there will be plenty of laughs and a chance to catch up with your friends. Razor will no doubt provide plenty of anecdotes to keep you entertained.
Aside from Scott, we will also hear from other guest speakers.
The event is being held at Lakeside Soldiers Memorial Hall on Wed 12th Jan from 5:30pm
