We were delighted to welcome Welsh rugby legend Jonathan Davis OBE on to campus last night as he entertained and inspired current students, alumni, staff and guests as part of USW Sport's 'A Sport Evening with...' speaker series.
Question-master for the evening was another former Welsh International, Phil Davies - now Head Coach of Namibia, BBC pundit and Visiting Professor here at the University.
The toughest thing is controlling the fear of failure - Jonathan Davis OBE
Trimsaran born, Davis, provided a witty and sometime irreverent reflection on his life that's been shaped in part by tragedy, in part by opportunity, but always by passion and a personal drive to succeed.
Drawing on his time in both rugby union and rugby league, Jonathan shared insights and answered questions on how best to maximise personal potential and opportunities in life.
The Series continues in 2017 and future events will be promoted online.
