Lisa Gawthorne was called up to run for England last weekend in the British Masters Cross Country at Aintree Racecourse. We are all incredibly proud of Lisa and it’s well deserved. Hopefully this is the start of something big for our talent.
One of our talents, Mick Dawson, has a very busy month ahead of him. There are a number of talks he’s going to be a part of in November:
15th – Mick’s a keynote speaker at the Captains Black Tie Dinner at The Dyke Golf Club, East Sussex.
20th – He’ll be the keynote at the Pegasus Network Club (Military Club) lunch in London.
21st – He’s attending the Royal Marines Charity Dinner at London’s Guildhall (As a guest of the sponsor Patron Capital).
29th– He’ll be spending a day at The Petersfield School, where he will be giving a series of presentations to the students during the day and in the evening a presentation for the general public at the school theatre. Tickets are still available and he will be signing copies of his first book in the evening.
He’s also speaking twice this month at NARU (National Ambulance Resilience Unit) on two of their hazardous training courses where Mick regularly delivers presentations on adaptive leadership, crisis management, teamwork and resilience.
Early in December, Mick departs on a Celebrity cruise ship ‘Constellation’ as a guest speaker, selling his first book; battling the oceans in a rowboat, and promoting his second; Never Leave a Man Behind, which is published in June 2020. He’ll be sailing from Dubai to Singapore via a host of great locations including; India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
As well as these talks, Mick is also busy training for a 90k cross country ski race with his old rowing partner, Steven Sparkes (Who’s blind). They’re taking part in the Vasaloppen in Sweden, on March 1st. Due to Mick having not skied since 1984, that should be interesting …
Catch our talent, Huw James, at the Kendal Mountain Festival from Friday to Sunday this week talking about the Science of Adventure. From the pain we endure on big expeditions to the performance it takes to do superhuman feats. He’ll be on the schools stage on Friday and the Columbia Basecamp stage Saturday and Sunday.
