BOOK NOW

Maggie Alphonsi is the face of international women’s rugby and arguably is one of the most well-known names in women’s team sports on the planet.

Before announcing her international retirement in 2014, she represented her country an impressive 74 times, scored 28 tries, and helped England win a record breaking seven consecutive Six Nations crowns.

She was a crucial member of the team that won the 2014 Rugby World Cup for the first time in 20 years and was part of the team that was crowned the BBC’s Sports Personality Team of the Year.

Through her England rugby career she has become a household rugby name but also a media professional, commentating on live rugby matches for SKY Sports and the BBC, as well as featuring on a number of national media platforms, including outlets as diverse as the Sunday Times, Stella Magazine, the Sun and BBC’s Children in Need (Gareth Malone’s All Star Choir).

In 2015 she became the first ever former female player to commentate on men’s international rugby when she was signed up by ITV for the Rugby World Cup, and this year she was named as part of ITV Sport’s broadcast team for the 2016 RBS 6 Nations.

As a speaker, Alphonsi is well qualified to share her experiences. You don’t need to be a rugby fan to be interested or inspired by how she has become a prominent figure in the challenging world of a male dominated sport. 

Maggie Alphonsi will be the next guest speaker at Ashton Gate's Big Sports Speakers event on Friday, September 30th 8am-10am. The event includes a full buffet breakfast and networking opportunities with a variety of regional and national businesses.
