Few Olympians have made the transition from athlete to coach as smoothly as Tim Foster MBE. After achieving his goal of winning a gold medal as part of the coxless fours at the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000, the Olympic speaker retired and transferred straight into coaching with the Great Britain Rowing Team before joining the UK Sport-sponsored Elite Coach Programme in 2004.
Tim is regarded as one of Britain’s most successful rowers of all time due to his remarkable career in which he won numerous gold medals. He made a bright start to his career and became the first British rower to win gold medals at two consecutive Junior World Championships. From there he proceeded into the senior squad.
He took to the senior stage like a duck to water and was winning medals in no time. Throughout his prestigious career, Foster won two gold medals at the World Championships as well as winning one gold medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. After winning gold in the Olympics, Foster was awarded an MBE due to his work within the team.
Since retiring in 2001, Foster has spent time coaching and managing a number of different rowing teams. His expertise as a rower combine perfectly with his leadership skills which make him the perfect coach.
As an Olympic speaker, Foster often discusses his illustrious rowing career but often reflects on vital topics such as peak performance and maximising success. Having spent time managing and coaching, Foster has great speaking qualities which make his after-dinner speeches both educational and compelling. Tim is a popular and amicable motivational speaker with a relaxed yet confident presenting style. He uses a great mix of anecdotes and humorous stories to entertain, inspire, and motivate audiences around the world.
