Sean Fitzpatrick is an amazing team building and motivational speaker, as well as a witty after dinner speaker with many humorous tales to tell about his life as a rugby player and within the media.
Starting off as a player for Auckland, he made his international debut in 1986, playing for the All Blacks in the test series against France. He then proceeded to play in the first ever Rugby World Cup in 1987, won by the All Blacks at Eden Park. In 1992, Sean was awarded the prestigious title of Captain of the All Blacks, which he held until his retirement from rugby in 1997.
He played in 121 international matches and 92 test matches which is a New Zealand record. He also played 51 test matches as an All Black captain, 63 consecutive test matches and has played in 74 test match victories which is more than any other player.
In 1997, he was awarded the New Zealand Order of Merit by the Governor General. Currently, he is the founder and director of Front Row Hospitality, a high-end hospitality and events company based in London offering bespoke services to a global client base.
As part of this, Front Row Leadership offers a leadership and motivational platform with recognised leaders from sport, business and academia, giving presentations and training to develop and improve performance.
