Andy is well known for his ability to motivate people to set team goals and achieve them. His warm relaxed style appeals to all audiences as he offers his skills on motivation and team building or shares his experiences as an entertaining after dinner speaker.
In a spectacular sporting career, Andy Dalton played 35 tests for New Zealand and captained the All Blacks in 1981 and from 1983 to 1987, leading them to victory against Australia, France, South Africa, British Lions and England. In 1984 he was announced New Zealand Rugby Player of the year.
His rugby career culminated in leading the All Blacks to victory in the inaugural World Cup, held in New Zealand in 1987.
Since retiring as an All Black Andy has been involved in coaching Counties Rugby and developing a very successful business in the area of waste management and more recently President of the NZRFU. In March 1999 he was elected President of the New Zealand Rugby Union. One of the youngest to ever hold that position Andy’s leadership credentials an All Black Captain coupled with his business acumen makes him a speaker with impeccable credentials. He has been described as the finest All Black Captain ever, with outstanding people management skills.
As an after dinner speaker, Andy’s humour and thoughts on the present Rugby environment is worth hearing.
