England’s former netball head coach, Tracey Neville is a legendary figure in British netball leading the team to several historic achievements. Top of this list is the gold medal that she led her England team to at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia. The first time England had ever achieved such a feat, this win elevated Tracey into being regarded as the greatest coach in British netball history. At her virtual speaking events, Tracey can discuss her own successful playing career as well as how she led her team to unprecedented success.
After success in domestic netball, Tracey was given the honour of coaching her country in 2015. Before the Commonwealth Games, Tracey led the team to three consecutive European Netball Championships. But the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast was the holy grail with the team defeating big favourites Australia by just one point in the final. At her virtual speaking events, Tracey can discuss her sporting success as well as how she coped with immense pressure.
Unsurprisingly, Tracey’s life has been dominated by sport. Her parents both held administrative roles in local football club Bury FC and both her brothers became professional footballers for Manchester United and England. Before becoming an exceptional coach Tracey was a successful netball player. Over the course of her career, she represented Northern Thunder, Leeds Carnegie and Australian side Adelaide Thunderbirds as well as playing for her country on 81 occasions. During this time, she also earned a bronze medal with the England netball team at the 1998 Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur.
Since leaving her England role in 2019 Tracey has worked as an online motivational speaker teaching audiences the necessary skills to succeed in whatever they do. Tracey’s fantastic determination, leadership skills, and ability to effectively manage a team all make for inspiring virtual speaking topics delighting huge audiences time and time again.
