Gosper is also the managing director of Rugby World Cup Ltd and has backed the organising committee of the next one, called England Rugby 2015, to deliver a first-class tournament.
England will contest three RBS 6 Nations tournaments before kicking off the 2015 World Cup where they will hope to match the scenes of 2003 by lifting the Webb Ellis Cup for the second time.
And Gosper believes that the pressure is mounting both on the pitch and off it to make 2015 a sporting success akin to 2012.
"We are conscious there has been an amazing event in the last few weeks in London with the Olympics," Gosper said. "It's putting the right kind of pressure on us. We are very aware it was a hugely successful event on every level; it really captured the hearts and minds of people not just in this country but around the world.
"Everyone is in awe of what happened here and we as an organising committee are in awe of that too. But that's good pressure to have and our goal is to deliver on that pressure and produce something everyone in this country is going to be proud of.
"There's that symbiotic relationship that the Olympics has with its host. There is no question that the Olympics were great for Great Britain, but what was also important was that Great Britain was brilliant for the Olympics. I think that is the kind of relationship and payback we want to have.
"This is obviously going to be a great World Cup for England but will also be good for the World Cup. We are confident England are going to put on a special and record breaking World Cup on many levels."
