client testimonials

We have been lucky enough to work with some incredible organisations over the years.

Please take some time to read a number of our client testimonials about their experiences with The Saracens Way.

Hearing The Saracens Way story from Will Fraser was a powerful and insightful addition to our Company Day. He talked openly and honestly about the Saracens story which was hugely refreshing, and spurred us into action to think much more deeply about how values truly impact elite performance in teams and organisations. What we had wanted was a real example of a successful team within our field of sport that could provoke thought and discussion for us to take us further, and that’s exactly what we got. I would highly recommend any Organisation to hear the insights from Will, it really will make a difference to how you think about your people and culture.

The Saracens way appears so simple yet it is so powerful. Their message is “that it is all about the journey”. And it is. They are right. And they have done it right too. The results speak for themselves. A profoundly impactful day brilliantly shared by Will and his team. We are on a better journey thanks to The Saracens Way. Thank you and Hurrah!

Director of People, Partners and Performance , Ark Data Centres

The LMA’s Institute of Leadership and High Performance has built a close and mutually beneficial relationship with Saracens. We have delivered a number of brilliant sessions providing coaches and managers in football with the opportunity to understand the principles of the incredibly successful Saracens Way and understand best practice from the elite level of another sport. Saracens’ approach to learning and their willingness to share their knowledge and experience with our members has delivered a valuable new dimension to our personal development programmes.

I would just like to start off by saying a big thank you on behalf of the UK Commercial team at Distell. The feedback has been incredible. Almost everybody has said to me how inspiring they found it … what resonated with the team was that you and Saracens really live those values and subsequently reaped the rewards and success for that cultural change. As a business we are also on a similar trajectory and you managed to motivate the team against some tough challenges and pulled them together. Commercial people really identify with sport and it’s competitive nature so the delivery was perfect. We also really liked David’s outlook and viewpoints on the methods he uses with the players. This session went a big way in motivating the team to step change our business and culture.

The day with Will Fraser, David Jones and Marcelo Bosch was a huge success. The Saracens Way doesn’t replace values and core beliefs Lidl already have but strongly demonstrates how successful a team or company can be if they fully ‘live’ those values both in work and outside. Our team of Senior Logistics Managers found this to be one of the most value adding sessions they have attended with many immediate takeaways. Will and his team present in an engaging and professional manner and drive the day through question and discussion. Feedback from attendees was that it was inspirational and motivating. The session on the pitch was also a huge success with all participants, regardless of being rugby followers or not, getting involved and understanding and appreciating the power of having the right attitude and behaviours and working as a team

Will Fraser gave an inspirational and motivating talk to staff at the University College London Hospital cancer event. [The] talk was very relevant to our organisations core values and he presented it in an engaging way… [it] was the highlight of the day and we would love to have him speak at other events.

Head of Fundraising, UCLH Cancer Division

Feedback was good. This is one specific email from a parent: I just wanted to let you know how much Harriet enjoyed the talk given by the representative from Saracens rugby.

Harriet was so animated talking about it and it has really made her think about how people are inspired in sport and life. I think she has learned a lot and the talk has made her think about which direction in life she may want to go! It is lovely to see, so thank you.

Dierctor of Sport, Felsted School

The day was a great success and was pitched at exactly the right level. I personally think that there is a lot of similarities between our core values, standards and ethos for what we are trying to instil into our teams, in order to get the most out of them.  Feedback from the lads was very positive and everyone agreed that the visit was very beneficial. The presentations at the start of the day created plenty of discussion and definitely give us food for thought and something to take away. I think the best part of the day for the boys was the activities on the pitch. They really enjoyed the session that was put together and the cross bar challenge was accomplished!

I cannot recommend “The Saracens Way” highly enough. You simply cannot argue with the fantastic results that Saracens have delivered on their journey thus far.

The delivery from the team was quite brilliant. We were able to see so many parallels and transferable methods into our own ‘performance’ business.
