Locke Lord’s ‘”Don’t Ruck With Us” conference, chaired by London Partner David Grant, examined key issues confronting the insolvency and restructuring arena during the past year and featured a keynote address by Sir Clive Woodward, who coached England's rugby team from 1997 to 2004 and led the team to victory in the 2003 Rugby World Cup.
Woodward focused his presentation on the value of brand recognition, motivation and winning processes, drawing from his highly successful experiences as a former English rugby union player and coach.
The half-day conference was held October 16, 2015, in the Firm’s London office. The event attracted interest from a wide variety of audiences, including representatives from IPs, banks, distressed and turnaround funders, ABLs, insurers and reinsurers, trade credit insurers and pension funds.
In addition to Woodward, the conference featured the acclaimed biomedical gerontologist and author Dr. Aubrey de Grey.
