Virtual Masterclass: New Year, New Inspiration

When we look back in time, we will see the revolution in the way we live and work began in 2020. Employees have shown they have the skill and motivation to work remotely, without the supervision imposed by traditional business management structures, to keep businesses running, thriving and prospering in this new era.

However we can only maintain this heightened sense of purpose for so long. The new year traditionally brings with it a fresh start, for clear mindsets to re-set and re-focus. It’s the perfect time for a kick-off meeting to leave 2020 behind and focus on the opportunities 2021 will bring.

Hosted by Helen Fospero, our final showcase of the year will demonstrate how an external speaker can re-energise your team, challenging them to look forwards and seize the opportunities that lie ahead. Our inspirational speaker line-up will do just that!

Register your place today  and join us at 3PM on Thursday 3rd December!

As one of Britain’s most successful athletes of all time, James Cracknell OBE has two Olympic Gold Medals and 6 World Championship titles. His epic rowing finals in Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004 have gone down in Olympic history, and have secured his spot as a British Sporting Hero. Since retiring from professional rowing, James has become the Founder and director of his enormously successful company Threshold Sports, and uses his expertise as an entrepreneur, businessman and Olympian to captivate his audience. We're delighted James will be joining us for this virtual masterclass event.

Mandy Hickson

Mandy Hickson overcame huge obstacles and setbacks before realising her dream of becoming a Royal Air Force pilot. Mandy was the second woman to fly the Tornado GR4 operationally and shares her experience to help us communicate better, empower ourselves and others, and draw the very best from the team around us. We've worked with Mandy for many years now and she never fails to engage audiences with her candour, humour and limitless energy.

Spencer West

In one of the last events to be held during 2020, our team saw Spencer West on stage at WE Day. They came back to the office blown away by his open and candid about the struggles he overcame after losing his legs at the age of five, and how he never lost the hope or courage he needed to overcome personal obstacles. Spencer is an inspirational and charismatic speaker, who speaks to his audience with humour and humility, while delivering his thought-provoking message to help us find opportunity in every challenge.
