Sharing their incredible journeys from dreaming to achieving success, the 290 strong audience were treated to personal and professional stories of strength, leadership and teamwork. From Bonita’s journey to the summit of Mount Everest, Lewis’s fight for marine conservation and raising awareness through record-breaking swims, to Sir Clive Woodward’s philosophies for winning and creating high-performance teams across sporting and corporate worlds.


Guests took part in a Q&A session before joining the speakers for networking at a post event drinks reception, which included canapé and bowl food of triple fried chip with charred fillet of beef and béarnaise sauce; soft quail egg with cured salmon; crispy buttermilk chicken, bubble and squeak and lime gel; banana ice-cream, chocolate crumble and apple foam.
