Jeremy Snape is one of the world’s leading mental skills coaches and has worked the South African Cricket Team, Rajasthan Royals (Indian Premier League), England Rugby Union, Premier League Club Crystal Palace, Football League Managers Association (LMA) and F1 Racing.
Jeremy played professional cricket for 16 years, including 10 caps for the English team. However, his biggest lesson was learnt when he under-performed in front of 120,000 people against India in a One Day International; where he became a firm believer though that failure is our most powerful teacher.
He hosts a podcast named ‘Inside the Mind of Champions’ and runs a successful consulting practice called Sporting Edge Digital.
