A Keynote Speaker Who Combines Resilience, High-Performance
And The Competitive Edge

By the age of 24 Anna had been World Champion 3 times and competed at the Olympic Games. In 2010 she was awarded an MBE for her services to sport. She achieved this success against all the odds.

She was told by the British head coach that she was not big enough or strong enough to be a great kayaker. She proved him wrong. At the peak of her career, Anna was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and was told by medical experts she might never race again. She battled her way to full recovery and went on to win a further 3 world titles and compete at her second Olympic Games in Beijing 2008.

“It was one of the best motivational talks translating high performance in sports into
the business world that I’ve heard. We are all walking away with many wonderful insights and actionable take-aways.”
