EP120: Celebrating The 6 Nations and Grand Slam French Rugby Success with Vlok Cilliers.

On this week’s episode of The DOC & The GURU Podcast, we chat about the recent 6 Nations Rugby Tournament and celebrate the success achieved by SA kicking coach, Vlok Cilliers, in playing such an integral part in France’s triumph.

And this show is not just about rugby; it’s a show about the parallels in life and the lessons that are all around us – I promise you, it’s a great listen! As marketers and media people, don’t miss out – it’s of immense value.

Vlok talks about finding the balance between individual brilliance and a team environment, doing the hard yards (and all those inches) well away from the Final, understanding and trusting the process and not just being outcome-focussed, managing the wafer-thin margins (at that level of sport, business and life) that result in fewer errors and a higher win-ratio, the alignment and role of leadership like the captain, Antoine Dupont (World Rugby Player of the Year), and head coach, Fabien Galthie, having mental toughness and paying attention to all the necessary detail.

French rugby has always been blessed with stars and a flamboyant style of play but, it’s also fair to say that they have been notoriously unpredictable and inconsistent at times – but this team seems to have built on the best (and continues to do so) and will go in as one of the favourites at next year’s Rugby World Cup France 2023, on home soil.

We close the show by moving away from the glitz and glamour of this campaign, and chat about the important work that the VlokSkop Foundation is doing in South Africa to help less-privileged people. So, listen in to see how you can get involved and make a contribution?
