Ashley Woolfe will talk about his career in elite sports management that spans more than 20 years. During that time he’s represented a range of high level sportsmen. In 2003 he became a licensed FIFA agent after an approach from Gareth Southgate (current England football manager) to look after his commercial work. Ashley oversaw the careers of Southgate and Dean Whitehead (former Sunderland Captain, and Stoke City & Huddersfield) amongst other footballers. His career highlights include managing the career of Lawrence Dallaglio (former England Rugby Union captain), including a successful re-brand after a ‘News of the World’ sting. Also in rugby, Ashley managed Jason Leonard for 15 years helping him make a successful transition to his post-playing career. In 2016 he became the Head of Commercial and Sponsorship for the newly formed University Rugby Championships and has been responsible for all sponsorship deals. Outside of sports, Ashley formed Just Talented along with Stuart Higgins (former Editor of The Sun) to represent television personalities where he signed Kirsty Gallacher and Katie Price (aka Jordan).
