Our top priority is to keep our people and our customers as safe, healthy and supported as possible throughout 2020. And that's an aim shared by our ambassadors, former England Rugby captain Dylan Hartley and current Sevens star Heather Fisher


We sat down with both the stars to discuss how they're adapting to the hectic change that's happening all around us. They shared their experiences, going into detail on how life in professional sport has given them the opportunities to build resilience. Heather chats to Liggy Webb, an expert on human resilience and behavioural skills. Dylan catches up with former Olympic psychologist Charlie Unwin, the man behind The Thrive Project. 


Give the videos a watch below to find out the coping mechanisms Heather and Dylan have adopted, and how you can potentially live like a rugby pro to get through what is turning out to be a pretty eventful 2020.

Dylan Hartley meets Charlie Unwin


Dylan Hartley has been sending us videos of his experience in lockdown over the past few months and we're loving how his green-fingered passion has grown, which is one of the ways he's dealing with change.


We wanted to get to know more about this and how his resilience is proving useful. Which is why we introduced him to Olympic psychologist Charlie Unwin. Together they were able to dive into how you can not just survive, but thrive in the current climate. Find out how you can build your resilience from two people who are well-versed on the subject.
