Tim Stimpson, Ex England, British & Irish Lion
A rugby star, Tim Stimpson enjoyed a career in top-flight for some of Europe’s most dominated clubs. Perhaps best known for his spell at Leicester Tigers, Tim played an elemental role in the side’s rampant success in both domestic and continental competition. A wonderful rugby speaker, Tim has a whole host of anecdotal tales to deliver to guests, ensuring his time on stage is as enjoyable as it is interesting.
Joining the Tigers from Newcastle Falcons in 1998, Tim became the side’s principal goal kicker in 1999 after the retirement of Joel Stransky. Tim would become Tigers royalty thanks to his efforts in the Heineken Cup for the side, beginning in 2001, where Tim’s extremely difficult try conversion took his side’s lead to four points at 34-30 over Stade Francais, meaning only a try would stop the Tigers from lifting the trophy. Tim stresses the importance of teamwork and leadership alongside individual contribution during talks as a sports speaker, attributes that can be applied to both the sporting and business worlds.
Tim’s ability would be tested once again a year later in the Heineken Cup final against Llanelli. At 10-12 down Awarded a penalty inside his own half, Stimpson elected to go for a penalty kick at goal in the dying moments of the game. Kicking from 58m away, Tim’s penalty bounced off two of the posts before creeping over to take the Tigers into the lead. This fateful kick led Tigers into the final, where they would go on to win and retain the Heineken Cup. Recalling his hugely influential moments in European Rugby, fans can relive these memorable moments with the very player who created them, giving insight as a rugby speaker that only adds to the occasion.
Having attended and talked at numerous events as an after dinner speaker, Tim is well versed in hospitality practice and is more than happy to talk to guests individually, join guests in photos as well as sign autographs.
