Leading sports psychologist Jeremy Snape started the evening with a look at how top achievers take positive steps to achieve their dream targets and how they cope with the inevitable hurdles they encounter. Jeremy gave invaluable advice on how to embrace the lessons gained through setbacks and how to recalibrate to ensure a successful onward path.
Our audience then spent 10 minutes in conversation with each of our elite athletes sharing the inside track on their career highlights and tips for success.
Thanks to the Old Caterhamians’ Association for sponsoring this event – thanks too to our amazing audience. “Inspirational!”, “open & honest!”, “amazing” were just some of the comments from those who attended.
