They talk about building teams in the business world but nothing is quite so ruthless as building teams in the sporting world. Cambridge Rugby Union Football Club let go around half the first team squad at the end of last season and have been recruiting hard for the new season.
Karl Rudzki has signed from Northampton Saints and has joined the club‘s PR consultants, Quite Great of Shelford, Cambridge, UK. It must be tough getting the body into shape for the season and the squad is already training three times each week. Of course, you do not need a budge in sport you have a league table from which there is no hiding.
It will take great leadership to keep this squad working together – a skill some entrepreneurial teams in Cambridge need to learn!
