About Ric

Ric Charlesworth is a chronic achiever – doctor of medicine and a former captain of the Australian Hockey Team, the Western Australian State Hockey Team and Cricket Team, and a Federal MP.

Ric played hockey for Australia for a record 16 years before going to Parliament in 1983 and retired 10 years later, taking on the position of National Coach of the Australian Women’s Hockey Team from 1993 to 2000, which then ranked number one in the world. He won Australian Team Coach of the Year six times in 1994 and from 1996 to 2000. He was then appointed a Master Coach by the International Hockey Federation and is described as one of the world’s best coaches.

Ric is the author of three books “The Coach – managing for success”. His second book titled “Staying at the Top” gives his principles of how to get to be the best and more importantly how to stay there. While living in Italy he wrote ‘Shakespeare the Coach’ and did some consulting in Europe with teams from professional rugby and soccer.

He has worked with the Australian Institute of Sport as a mentor coach to 5 national team coaches and was a high performance consultant to the Fremantle Football Club, New Zealand Cricket and Technical Advisor to Indian Hockey.

At the end of 2008 Ric was inducted into the Hockey Australia inaugural Hall of Fame and also became the Head Coach of the Australian Men’s hockey team, who won gold at the 2010 World Cup in New Delhi and gold at the Commonwealth Games. He is the first person to have played in and coached a Gold medal winning World Cup team in hockey.

With an entertaining and informative approach, Ric draws from a wealth of sporting, political and medical experience to provide insight, advice and anecdotes to all facets of human endeavour.
