    Time - 10.00 am Registration and Refreshments for a 10.30 am Start

    Presenter - Paul Parrish + Paula Craig MBE

    Topic - Do we know our limits? What might we be capable of?

    ABOUT THE PRESENTERSPaula Craig MBE is a retired Senior Detective Inspector in the Met, having worked in the Flying Squad, Homicide and Serious Crimes and Counter- terrorism units. She is also a world class athlete. In 2001, whilst training for the triathlon world championships she was hit by a car and paralysed. 11 months after discharge she became the first (and only) person to both run the London Marathon and push the event. She was to finish second on two occasions behind Tanny Gray Thompson and continued to compete at the highest levels as a wheelchair athlete.Paul Parrish, Director of Fundraising and Marketing for spinal injury charity, Aspire, is also an endurance athlete. He has completed a variety of long distance events and has raised over Â60,000 for his charity. In 2014 he became only the 20th and oldest person to complete the "Worldâs Hardest Triathlon", the Arch to Arc; an 87 mile run from Marble Arch to Dover, a solo swim of the Channel and a 182 mile bike ride to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. He later appeared in the BBC's Ultimate Hell Week, where he persevered to the penultimate episode of the series, proving that age need no barrier to physical achievement.CONTENTThis is a story of two very different people facing very different challenges finding their lives converging through a charity. Paula and Paul will tell their personal stories. Whilst not a traditional business presentation this seminar will inspire and help you "right size" the day to day challenges that you face in your personal and professional lives. They will challenge your perception of what is âpossibleâ and how with a simple change in mental attitude and the way that you approach a problem, you can achieve more than you would ever imagine possible.

What members and guests say

"I've tried a number of different networking groups (the usual suspects) and none of them were for me...too pressurised and regimented, and the early morning starts were a problem because of the school run.The Business Network is different. Sharon does an excellent job of creating a friendly environment, and I've made some great contacts. More importantly, after just the first couple of meetings I've already secured enough new business to more than cover my membership costs for the year...with hopefully more in the pipeline."
