We were privileged to hear talks by two speakers - Alison Mowbray, an Olympic Medallist who was on the British Rowing Team which won silver at the Athens
Olympics and Emma Wiggs who is Captain of the GB Sitting Volleyball team and who will be representing her country at the 2012 Paralympic Games. The stories of
their incredible journeys to reach their goals were inspirational, motivational and at times quite emotional...and they were both so down to earth and
unassuming and indeed "normal" that I'm sure that all of those present learned a great lesson in how to achieve goals without all the hype and "superstardom" which unfortunately many sportsmen and women think is theirs by right. They were truly amazing ambassadors for their sports and it was an honour to be in their company.
