Charity Ambassador

Leon has always been keen to use his own experiences as a sports professional and now a business professional to improve the lives and opportunities of others. He became actively involved in charity and fundraising during his playing career, and continues to be an active ambassador for The Prince’s Trust, Action Deafness and Switch The Play.

“If I can help in any way to provide an opportunity and some much-needed guidance to others to hopefully change the course of their lives then I will do what I can in return for what others did for me many years ago.“

Leon has been an ambassador of The Prince’s Trust for over 10 years and remains committed to helping the charity raise awareness of the work it does to change the lives of young people. Leon channels his energy to ‘give something back’ by getting involved in fundraising events, raising vital funds, supporting campaigns and generally raising the charity’s profile. Leon has also joined the Princes Trust Business Mentor Programme, which was established to help those from varying backgrounds who are desperately trying to change their own lives for the better by setting up their own businesses and becoming self-employed.

As one of the Co-Founders and CEO of the Switch the Play Foundation, Leon led the UK’s first charity focussing on assisting athletes and members of the military with their transition and development into the next phase of their lives.

Having successfully transitioned into the world of business himself, Leon has been able to physically implement all he had learnt as part of his (1) professional rugby career, (2) his First Class Hons degree and also (3) his MBA so that real life athletes could prepare for their move to the corporate world.
