About Dan Carter

Former All-Black, father of four and Unicef Ambassador Dan Carter is considered the greatest fly half to ever don the All Blacks jersey. During his 20-year career he broke several world records and scored the winning points in the 2015 Rugby World Cup final, earning him his third World Rugby Player of the Year Award and a second consecutive World Cup win for New Zealand. He is the most-capped All Black Flyhalf and the highest point scorer in Super Rugby history. 

Since his retirement from rugby, Dan has spent much of his time immersed in charity work. His autobiography, Dan Carter: My Story, published in 2015, became one of New Zealand’s biggest selling biographies of all time and was a major bestseller around the world. In 2019, Daniel William Carter was made an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for his services to rugby. In 2021, Dan was invited to become the first ever Leader in Practice at the Oxford Foundry, the entrepreneurship institute founded at the university by Apple CEO Tim Cook. Dan's goal was simple: to inspire the next generation of leaders.
