Tony Ward

Rugby legend and pundit Tony Ward suffered a crisis of confidence when his hearing went into decline. This is a common occurrence in people with hearing loss, and often the sense of insecurity increases as hearing ability decreases. We recently fitted Tony with Oticon More hearing aids, and he tells us it's restored “an inner confidence” he had lost. Restore your hearing and confidence.

I thought it’s like being seen with a Zimmer frame. Psychologically, that’s what I was thinking. What I’m trying to do is to draw on my experience and encourage other people not to make the same mistake.

So, to them, I would say, look, shake off any inhibitions because the difference to the quality of your life in doing the things that matter in life simple again, I use the word interaction, verbal interaction, whatever it is, just life. There is a better quality of life guaranteed on the back of it.

It’s given me an inner confidence that I’d think I lost to some degree, particularly when I’m talking to my own girls and grandchildren as it is.
