An inspirational rugby league coach, Graham Lowe gained an enormous amount of respect from both those who played under him and those who looked on. He is the only coach of rugby league in the world to have won championships in three different countries - New Zealand, Australia and Great Britain. Graham turned around both Wigan and the Manly Sea Eagles and was the first non-Queenslander to coach the State of Origin side.
Graham's coaching career is littered with success, drama and controversy. In his personal life, Graham has overcome major health problems and is now passionate about the promotion of awareness of men's health issues.
Admired for his honesty, integrity and loyalty, Graham believes New Zealanders need to change their attitude and get back to their traditional sporting values. He says that when he left New Zealand 20 years ago sporting people had an attitude that the Australians have now and he has noticed a big change in the way sport is coached, administered and supported here.
As well as discussing New Zealand and his observations of philosophies here, Graham's presentation covers teamwork, working together and everyone playing a part in the big picture. He uses examples from his coaching career to draw strong parallels between sport and business. Graham strongly believes in not letting things get you down and that balance in life is what really matters.

"The greatest blunders, like the thickest ropes, are often compounded of a multitude of strands. Take the rope apart, separate it into the small threads that compose it, and you can break them one by one. You think, 'That is all there was!' But twist them all together and you have something tremendous."
