We have two inspirational and amazing speakers in 2017. These are Anna Turney and Jen Rolfe. And we also have an excellent Master of Ceremonies in the form of Simon Smith.

2014 Paralympic Winter Games - Day 3Anna Turney

Anna Turney became paralysed in a snowboarding accident in 2006. She got back on snow, won World Cup medals and represented Great Britain in two Paralympic Games, achieving Britain’s best ever Alpine Skiing result in Women Sitting in Sochi 2014.

Inspiration and steadfast focus around her passions enabled Anna to turn a paralysing injury around, achieving international success in a short space of time.

Anna uses compassion and positivity to motivate others, stimulating skill development and success. Discover positivity, develop resilience and achieve your goals. You too can choose triumph over adversity!
