ABE Networking Breakfast with Key Note Speaker

Wednesday 16th May from 7.30am

Ipswich Hotel Copdock

Limited number of tickets available to join our prestigious ABE Key Note Speaker Breakfast with Wendy Smith. Enjoy breakfast, networking, a fantastic speaker and be on site to visit the exhibition.

Speaker - Wendy Smith

We are delighted to announce that businesswoman and Paralympic athlete Wendy Smith of Pioneering Change will be the keynote speaker at the Anglia Business Exhibition Breakfast.

Wendy, who suffered a spinal injury at the age of 17, was a member of the Great Britain women's wheelchair basketball team at the Athens Paralympics in 2004 and went on to qualify as a sports psychologist and sports massage therapist, alongside achieving basketball coaching and refereeing qualifications.

She now works as a trainer and business coach with a focus on personal development and self-management, running workshops and practitioner courses designed to share knowledge and help people reach the next level of performance.

Wendy, who describes herself as a "helper", also works within the education system as a mentor and is an ambassador for both 21st Century Legacy, which aims to build aspiration in school children and help them find their passion in life, and Milestone Group, founder of the Passion Project to tackle youth unemployment and disaffection. 

Her approach is based on the idea that people are not their behaviours but are the sum of their beliefs, and one of her favourite quotes is from Henry Ford who said: "If you think you can or you think you can't, you are right".
