Frank Dick OBE

Chair of Scottish Athletics

Frank Dick OBE is the current President of the European Athletics Coaches Association, Member of the IAAF Coaches Commission, as well as Chair and architect of the IAAF Academy.

From 1979 to 1994 he was the British Athletics Federation’s Director of Coaching, where he was widely acknowledged as and remains one of the outstanding sports coaches and coach mentors in the world. In this position Frank led the British Athletics team into its “golden era” with Olympic gold medalists such as Daley Thompson, Steve Ovett and Sebastian Coe.

Frank also devised regimes for European sportsman such as Boris Becker and Gerhard Berger and continues to encourage and inspire athletes in his work as a motivational speaker.

Frank’s contribution to sport and coaching has been recognised in being awarded an OBE in 1989, induction to the UK Coaches Hall of Fame in 1999 and the prestigious title “UK Sporting Hero” by Sport UK in 2001.

Over the past 25 years of speaking to hundreds of companies both in the UK and around the world, Frank has recognised key areas of personal and professional development that, once taken out of a “training room” mentality and put into a different context, can lead to individual and team progress simply by giving a different perspective.

In his capacity as an after-dinner speaker Frank combines his experience as a sporting coach with an ever-increasing knowledge of the business industry to produce informative and effective motivational speaker presentations that cover themes of employee development, personal improvement and attaining goals.
