Endurance Sport: The Ultimate Business Playground?

Andy Mouncey There’s nothing new about high-achieving sports people accepting invitations from the world of business to talk about their experience and ‘how they dun it.’

Assuming the speaker can connect with his/her audience then the ‘wow’ factor can indeed be high and it can be a moving and inspirational experience for many in the room with some powerful lessons to take away.
