This event has now finished. Please see our events website for details of upcoming events at Brookes.
Who this event is for
JHB Lecture Theatre, John Henry Brookes Building, Headington Campus
So many of us are
desperately busy doing what’s immediately in front of us rather than the things
that make a real difference.
Ben will tell the story
of the GB men’s rowing 8+ in the build up to the 2000 Sydney Olympics, where
they won the gold medal, and how they challenged everything to make the boat go
faster. For Ben it was the culmination of nine years in the national team.
Ben’s story is a call to
action, challenging you to examine how you spend your time in a way that
ensures you are travelling in the direction that you want to go.
