Profile:
For Guest Speaker Craig Joubert, refereeing International rugby has provided some wonderfully humourous onfield moments and some enormous challenges and pressures. From the fields of Maritzburg College (refereeing the likes of butch James and Kevin Pietersen as schoolboys) to Eden Park and the Rugby World Cup Final in 2011 the journey has been filled with experiences which Craig loves to share. What does Richie McCaw really say to referees before a major Test Match? How influencial are captains like John Smit? These and other amusing and challenging moments from his continuing journey through International Rugby are what he likes to share.
 
Craig's late dad taught him that refereeing is all about people management and his advice is still the mantra on which Craig bases his refereeing philosophy; treat people with respect and treat them like adults and the feeling is likely to be reciprocal. 
 
Having worked in Corporate Banking for 5 years after graduating from University, Craig is fascinated by the parallels that exist between the Corporate World and the world of Professional Sport. The habits acquired in his years in Corporate banking are still relevant on a daily basis as he travels the world refereeing professional rugby and vice versa. Honest self analysis of performance, how to connect with people and get the best out of a team, decision making under pressure, teamwork, dealing with difficult clients, handling criticism and failure etc are all aspects he deals with daily in professional sport as he did in Corporate Banking.
