Gordon Tredgold

Author, Speaker, Consultant, Coach and Leadership Expert

Gordon Tredgold, is a Inc. Magazine Top 100 Leadership Expert and Speaker. He has spent the first 25 years of his career working in senior leadership positions, for Fortune 100 companies, successfully delivering complex $100m projects, running $200m departments and leading global teams of over 1000 staff.

He built a reputation as a turnaround expert, and when things were going badly, I become the “go to” guy to get things fixed. This helped me develop an understanding of what causes things to fail, and what we need to do to make them successful. Now he speaks, write and coach on leadership.

He has published three books, have written over 900 articles on leadership, and regularly contribute to Inc, Huffington Post and Addicted2Success.

Gordon's Rugby career: He started playing rugby league at the age of nine, and Union at 13. I had trials with Leeds RL but was found not guilty of being good enough. I played and captained Manchester University Rugby League, and I started the first rugby league team in Leicester, captaining them to the league trophy. I quit league at 27 and continued to played Union until I was 43.
