Description

Lochaber Chamber of Commerce is delighted to announce An Evening with Gavin Hastings as part of Ideas Week 2017 in partnership with VisitScotland! #LIW2017

Ideas Week 2017 is sponsored by Nevis Range, hosted by The Moorings Hotel and powered by No Fuss Events!

Gavin's presentation will take place at The Moorings Hotel Monday 13th November at 6pm and will be followed by a Q&A with Gavin hosted by Riddell Graham of Visit Scotland.

Former Captain of Scotland and British Lions Rugby, Gavin Hastings offers audiences insight into what it takes to be a great team player and leader, showing how we can apply the lessons learned on the rugby pitch to a business environment

Gavin Hastings won two rugby blues at Cambridge and Captained the Light Blues in the 1985 Varsity Match prior to winning his first Cap for Scotland in the 1986 Five Nations Championship match against France, alongside brother Scott.
He kicked six penalty goals on his debut to give Scotland an 18-17 victory. Eight years later they both won their 50th Caps together in the corresponding fixture at Murrayfield.
He captained Watsonians (in Scotland), London Scottish (in England), the Barbarians (in Hong Kong), the British Lions (in New Zealand) and Scotland (in South Africa) and has toured with various representative teams all over the world.

His Scottish highlights included playing in all three Rugby World Cups to date; winning the 1990 Grand Slam with Scotland and captaining his country to an historic away victory over France in 1995 after 26 years of trying.

Gavin retired from International rugby after the 1995 World Cup in South Africa having played 61 times for his country, 20 of them as Captain. He scored over 700 points in official Test Matches, placing him second behind Australia's Michael Lynagh in the list of all-time record point scores.

He received an OBE in the New Year’s Honours List in 1994, nothing of course to do with the fact that HRH The Princess Royal is a loyal and proud supporter of the Scottish Rugby Team in her capacity as Patron of the Scottish Rugby Union.
