Event description

Description

In honour of International Women’s Day, Lift As You Climb is pleased to welcome Tanni Grey-Thompson DBE. Tanni is a cross-bench member of the House of Lords, a passionate campaigner, a high-profile strategic leader, a public figure, a wife and mother and a former elite-athlete.

One of Great Britain’s most successful Paralympic athletes, Tanni knows what it takes to succeed and how to build a successful team. Her position as a cross-bencher is well suited to her; she uses her objective faculties to scrutinise and anticipate the unintended consequences of individual decisions, policies and legislation.

Tanni has unique skills to defuse and deflect negativity and can help others adapt those same skills for their use. In 2000 she was voted into third place in the BBC Sports Personality awards, however the BBC hadn’t provided a ramp or means for Tanni to join the other winners on the stage. There was an outcry, Tanni stayed calm throughout, but the gaffe by the broadcaster highlighted the lack of facilities for disabled people.

Tanni will give us her view on how to build and maintain resilience. Come and listen, learn and ask questions.
