We are delighted to invite you to join Ruby Wax and guests on 11 May for an exclusive evening of transforming mind-sets hosted by Grant Thornton UK LLP in association with British Athletics and Mind.

The best performers – whether in business, sport or entertainment – are those who dedicate themselves to reaching the top of their profession. But what happens when you’ve reached the summit or if something happens to derail the plan? How do you handle transition when the time has come to move on to the next chapter? And what effect does all this have upon the mind?

Join Ruby Wax OBE for a thought-provoking discussion centred around mind-set, performance and resourcefulness. Ruby will call upon a stellar panel to share their unique stories and insights that have defined their lives and professional careers.

RSVP below to reserve your place at what is likely to be a highly engaging and memorable evening.

Date: Thursday 11 May 2017
Time: 6.00pm – 9.30pm
