Description

As part of the University's Festival of Wellbeing, the Clinical School Wellbeing Programme is pleased to be able to welcome Tony Derbyshire to the school. Tony is a Performance Coach and former Royal Marine Commando who has been helping athletes, teams and organisations improve their performance, resilience and wellbeing for the last seventeen years.



Tony will discuss:

  • How little changes in our behaviour can have a profound impact on our health, wellbeing, overall satisfaction and performance

  • Types of normal, but not so perfect daily routines, and the fatigue and negative consequences associated with them

  • The effects of the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system and how to control it in our daily work life

  • Advice on simple, healthy nutrition choices

  • The science of sleep, the costs of poor quality or quantity of sleep and the benefits of good quality sleep, along with some practical advice of how to achieve this


Tony has coached and delivered training for organisations such as Vodafone, Hewlett Packard, GlaxoSmithKline, RBS, NHS and Microsoft, to name but a few.

After spending almost a decade as a Royal Marine, Tony set up his own business as a Health and Fitness professional. His skills for motivating clients and getting results led him to becoming more interested in sports psychology and understanding the link between success and positive attitudes. Tony advanced his knowledge and became a lecturer for one of the leading Health and Fitness Training companies in the UK where he taught sports therapy and business skills.

Tony then took his skills into business to deliver performance and coaching programmes for a successful training consultancy. His exhilarating programmes put business teams, managers, and individuals through their paces, helping them to achieve their best performances in all aspects of life.

At present he is the Performance Coach for AFC Bournemouth and part of his responsibilities are the player’s lifestyle choices, both in work and at home, including, nutrition, sleep, and daily habits.

Tony lives in Poole Dorset with his wife and two daughters and in his spare time competes in endurance races. He has completed five Ironman Triathlons and three years ago he participated in “The Ultimate Challenge” for the charity Rarer Cancer foundation where he swam 6 miles, cycled 100 miles, kayaked 36 miles, ran a marathon and finally competed in an Olympic triathlon.


With a deep understanding of the importance of controlling attitude, confidence, self-esteem and mental focus, his entertaining and acclaimed programmes, inspire delegates to become true winners.’ Source: Potential Plus.
