Hannah is a double Olympic medallist, with the record-breaking Great Britain Women’s hockey team, culminating in winning Gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics. She has a doctorate in Exercise Physiology and has built a successful specialist nutrition consultancy business.
Hannah made her international debut for England in 2004 against Germany at the age of 19. Since then, she has amassed over 150 caps for England and Great Britain. Hannah was part of the team that won Gold at the European Championships in 2015, Bronze at the 2012 Olympic Games in London and Silver at the 2012 Champions Trophy in Argentina.
Before becoming a full-time hockey player in 2009, Hannah completed her PhD in Environmental Exercise Physiology at Nottingham Trent University after gaining a BSc (Hons) in Sport and Exercise Science from Loughborough University. She is the Great Britain Hockey Elite Development Squad Assistant Coach and facilitates workshops for high performing teams across a variety of businesses.
Hannah provides valuable insights into the fundamental requirements of a performance culture and the core principles of effective teamwork. Hannah’s ability to articulate her personal learnings from performing in an elite sporting environment enables her to deliver insightful and personal Keynotes, presentations, seminars and candid Q & A’s. She recently tested her principles on high performing teams whilst competing for Great Britain in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race. Having previously had no sailing experience, she took on the challenge of ocean racing with a crew of 20 novice sailors.
Hannah reveals the critical success factors for achieving sustained high performance in teams. An insight into the methods and strategies used by the Olympic Gold Medal winning Great Britain hockey team to move from 11th in the world in 2008 to Olympic and European Champions 8 years later.
I have put Hannah forward for a number of speaking engagements covering everything from live broadcast interviews to panel discussions. She’s bright, personal and passionate; all of which comes through regardless of topic or platform. Whether putting forward a well-researched point or answering an impromptu question from the floor, Hannah is a natural communicator and I would recommend her without hesitation.
