Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

The London Branch of University of Bristol Alumni warmly invites alumni and friends to our 2017 Annual Lecture.

This year’s Annual Lecture will be somewhat different!

We are absolutely delighted, and privileged, that the three University of Bristol alumni who won medals at the 2016 Olympics have agreed to participate in a Panel Discussion to share their thoughts about their amazing achievements in Rio, last year.

This event will bring together:

  • Hannah Mills, MBE, Team GB’s Gold Medallist in the Women’s 470 Sailing event
  • Georgie Twigg, MBE, member of Team GB’s Women’s Hockey Gold champions
  • Tom Mitchell, Captain of Team GB’s Rugby Sevens squad which won Silver

The Discussion will be chaired by Matt Paine, the University’s Elite Performance Sports Manager, and will include a Q&A session, allowing you ample time to put your questions to the medal winners.

This unique event will give you an opportunity to understand how our medallists’ University experience prepared them for Olympic stardom; to explore their story about their road from Bristol to Rio, and hear what it was it like to stand on the champions’ podium with the Union Jack fluttering above their heads.

We are also delighted that the University Vice-Chancellor & President, Professor Hugh Brady, has confirmed that he will join us at the event, and will give a short presentation on the University’s exciting, and ambitious, development programme.

It should be a fascinating evening!

This event will take place at the heart of the British Olympic Movement: the prestigious Headquarters of the British Olympic Association, 60, Charlotte Street, London W11 2NU, which is a short walk from Goodge Street underground Station.

The event starts at 1800 and the post-discussion networking drinks/ food reception will continue until 2130.

The Panel Discussion will be preceded by a short Annual General Meeting of the London Branch of Bristol Alumni, of which Notice is hereby given. Any proposed Resolutions should be notified to the Branch Secretary by 1 October, 2017.
