TritonLake, as primary sponsors of the Ireland Sevens programme, brings you TritonLake Perform – a podcast series that will explore the intersection of sport and business, and in particular, the necessary ingredients when it comes to creating and maintaining a dynamic high-performance culture. Hosted by TritonLake founder and CEO, Conor Smyth, guests on TritonLake Perform will come from the world of sport and business, with particular focus on businesses operating in the countries where HSBC Sevens World Series Events take place - many of which are key markets for TritonLake. 

The fourth episode of TritonLake Perform features Ronan O’Gara, Head Coach of La Rochelle. In this episode, Ronan talks about making the leap from rugby player to rugby coach as well as the struggle of leaving his playing days behind and making room for the next generation of talent in Munster and Irish Rugby. Ronan also delves into his own coaching performance and style within La Rochelle, breaking down what he calls the performance ‘triangle’ of skillset, structure, and mindset, and the role of theming in building the team’s culture, before looking ahead to the future of Irish Rugby.
