After retiring as a player Sir Clive began his remarkable coaching career as the first ever full-time professional head coach of the England rugby union team. Sir Clive immediately abandoned traditional practice by introducing business principles to the role – combining the setting of long term goals for the team with personal development programmes tailored to the needs of the individual. By combining modern business and sporting techniques, he revolutionised the way the game was coached and played. This led to the transformation of the national side and the ultimate glory of winning the Rugby World Cup in Sydney 2003.

According to a participant at a recent Metropolitan Police leadership conference, Sir Clive gave an “Excellent presentation of his approach to work. Memorable content with detailed, well thought-out examples which made it easy to consider applying his learning and personal philosophy to our leadership practices. The presentation made me think, and has caused me to reflect on my applications to my work" Metropolitan Police
