Gilbert has worked as mental skills coach for the All Blacks for 15 years - and is still currently in this role. He brings to the table a practical matter of fact approach that drives ongoing success at both and individual and team level.
Hidden away in the backroom of the All Blacks machinery, the sports psychologist has helped transform the national team – playing a pivotal part in taking them from the depths of despair after their 2007 World Cup quarterfinal loss to the French in Cardiff through to their record-breaking Rugby World Cup triumph at Twickenham.
Forget images of leather couches and stuffy offices, Enoka's form of sports psychology has him holding one-on-one sessions in dressing rooms, in hotels and on planes with some of the world's best athletes – All Blacks, Black Caps, Silver Ferns, Olympic stars.
