Floyd Woodrow

Inspirational performance coach

  • Renowned speaker on leadership and elite performance
  • One of the youngest ever to have been selected for the elite SAS
  • Won the second highest gallantry award for his work in Iraq

Floyd is the managing director and founder of Chrysalis Worldwide, a world leading values-based organisation, and has an excellent track record of success as a military leader, director, non-executive director, consultant and negotiator. 

Challenging, supportive and totally committed to developing elite teams and individuals as well as offering practical and commercial value in strategic planning and execution, Floyd has established an international reputation for designing and running leadership and elite performance training in sports, business, government, police, not for profit organisations and education.

Floyd’s early career was as a soldier in the Parachute Regiment. He spent four years with the 1st Battalion Regiment before joining the Special Air Service at the age of 22. 

During this time he was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal for his work in Iraq and an MBE for his work in Afghanistan. Whilst in the military, he studied law and psychology and wrote his first book “Learning to Learn”.

Since leaving the military Floyd established his consultancy business and became a director of a number of companies in the oil and gas industry, technology and finance.

Floyd regularly lectures on leadership all over the world, recently winning a prestigious award as a high performing speaker. Floyd wrote his second book Elite "the secret to Elite Leadership and Performance" in 2012, which reached the final of the people’s book prize. His third book has just been published and is called The Warrior, The Strategist and You and outlines the “Compass for Life model for leadership and life”.

In his own words, Floyd was "given many leadership roles at a young age, but I never really understood what leadership actually was until my mid-thirties. I wish I had been taught some of the things I now know much earlier in my life. There is no doubt in my mind that there is a common thread to the most talented people in the world and I enjoy showing people what that is."
