About

Helping organisations develop the coaching skills they need across their business to drive performance

We do what we do because not only do we find that people often limit their own potential through a lack of understanding of what is possible, they’re also unclear on how to best support the learning of others – usually called coaching!! We love to keep things simple and spend an unhealthy amount of time looking at the evidence behind where ability comes from and developing practical ways to help others reach their potential. Our passion is to share learning to help create environments where personal growth is a daily habit.

Tony Stanger - Stanger Pro Limited

Tony Stanger

Tony represented Scotland 52 times at Rugby Union and is their joint record try scorer of all time.  He was part of the victorious British Lions Tour to South Africa in 1997 and scored arguably the most famous try in Scottish rugby history to win the Grand Slam in 1990.

He has a 1st class Honours degree in applied sports science and an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Edinburgh and worked for 7 years as a professional coach for Leeds Rugby Academy and London Irish RFC. He has vast experience in the world of elite sport and was most recently Head of Talent at the Scottish Institute of Sport – a job specialising in understanding how to maximise the potential of limited talent pools.

He has a strong family focus and loves challenges and the life experiences they offer. When he’s not working (and sometimes when he should be!) his hobby is using what he knows about talent to maximise his golfing potential.
