Robbie McRobbie, CEO, Hong Kong Rugby Union

Andy was one of our “Sevens Ambassadors” for the 2017 Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens, alongside the likes of Jean de Villiers, Waisele Serevi, Gordon D’Arcy and Ben Gollings.

He spent a full week with us, helping to launch our first “Tackling Barriers Through Sport” campaign, which was a collaborative effort between our HKRU Community Foundation and Laureus¬†to highlight the power of sport to help address issues such as overcoming adversity, social inclusion and youth crime. Andy led a practical wheelchair rugby session for local Paralympic athletes, and then spoke very powerfully at a workshop session for 100 invited guests.

Over the Sevens Tournament Andy helped with corporate hospitality and speaking engagements, and as always was engaging and a great personality to have as part of our team. After the Sevens, Andy gave a motivational talk to the HKRU staff plus invited guests, and it was obvious that Andy’s story and words had a profound effect on the audience.

Throughout their time with us Andy, and his wife Alison who assisted greatly with social media content, were consummate professionals in all they did, and an absolute pleasure to work with. We look forward to welcoming them both back to Hong Kong soon!
