The Diversity Committee with Young British Chamber are delighted to be jointly hosting an evening reception and presentation for 3 times European gold medalist and former captain of team GB in wheelchair rugby, Andy Barrow. 
 
Join us to hear insights from Andy’s life and how we can all gain inspiration from his hard work, perseverance and triumph over adversity. There will also be an open Q&A where Andy will answer questions and share further insights to an audience of young professionals and business leaders alike. 
 
We will also be launching our new diversity publication ‘Getting Started in D&I’ which contains insights into the EDI policies of organisations such as Barclays and the British Council.
 
Attendees will receive a copy of Getting Started in D&I, which was compiled with contributions from the companies represented in our Diversity Business Group Committee.
 

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

 
 
In 1997, Andy was playing rugby when he suffered a spinal injury that left him paralysed from the chest down. He was aged just 17.
 
The following year, his life was transformed when he discovered wheelchair rugby or ‘murderball’. 
 
Making his debut in 2002, Andy’s career encompassed three Paralympic Games, three World Championships, and five European Championships, where he won three gold medals in a row.
 
He captained Great Britain from 2005 to 2010, and led the team out at the Beijing Paralympics.
 
Andy retired after the 2012 Paralympics and since then, has worked as an athlete mentor for the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust and Sporting Champions and has created and collaborated on several mentoring projects including his successful 3 Cs Challenge. 
 
Andy now speaks to corporate audiences about performance across the world where he specializes in creating bespoke itineraries for organisations.
