Where: Glaziers Hall, 9 Montague Close, London Bridge, London, SE1 9DD (3-min walk from London Bridge Station)
Topic: Join STH Live for a keynote speech on performing under pressure and overcoming failure. Celebrating Rugby World Cup 2019 and the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games.
What: How do you motivate and inspire your staff to demonstrate outstanding leadership and teamwork under pressure; to stride confidently towards purposeful goals and maintain focus despite great risks? Mandy Hickson’s story is one of drive and determination, triumphs and setbacks. Using her unique experience, Mandy will demonstrate critical success factors required to perform under pressure and overcome failure, in order to get the best for yourself or your team. Mandy will be joined by Rugby World Cup winner Ben Kay MBE and a Team GB athlete fresh from the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games, who will share their experiences and how this relates to their careers on the world stage.
Keynote speaker: Mandy Hickson was the only female pilot on her Front Line Tornado Squadron, flying multi-million pound fighter jets for the Royal Air Force in hostile territory. Whilst for many this is a dream job, it is a career that takes years of ambition, training and commitment. Mandy’s route to the top was tumultuous in every sense and despite prowess in the skies she failed the computer-based tests, taken by all potential RAF pilots. Undeterred and with unwavering self-belief Mandy overcame seemingly insurmountable hurdles to complete three tours of duty and 45 missions over Iraq.
Guest Panel: An England Rugby legend, Ben Kay MBE was part of the iconic 2003 World Cup winning England squad. He retired at the end of the 2009-10 seasons after 11 years with Leicester Tigers and with 62 caps for England. During a highly successful career Ben was also part of the winning squad for six Premiership titles, three Six Nations tournaments and featured in every minute of England’s march to the Rugby World Cup 2007 final.
Webb Ellis Cup: STH Live are excited to announce that the Webb Ellis Cup will be at the event, and attendees will have the opportunity to have a photo with the famous prize for the winners of Rugby World Cup.
