Anna Hemmings’ story is a tale of triumph over adversity, culminating in six World titles and three European titles to become Britain’s most successful female canoeist.
At the next Network Royals Business Club event on Wednesday 22nd May, she will share how she reached the highest level in her sport, the challenges that she faced along the way, how she overcame them and how she won back-to-back world titles - sustaining performance at the highest level over a period of 10 years.
There will be a particular focus on leadership roles that the coaches she worked with took and how, together, they created high-performing teams.
Anna will discuss the key characteristics that made some of those coaches excellent leaders, and the behaviours and attitudes that they adopted that allowed them to inspire optimal performance and cohesive teams.
After an incredibly successful sell-out inaugural event last month, which saw more than 100 businesses attend and over 20 businesses sign up for Network Royals Business Club membership, places are expected to sell fast for May’s event.
Companies can join other like-minded businesses for an afternoon of networking, a buffet lunch, discover the latest exciting opportunities with Reading FC and hear an inspiring talk from Anna.
