Blind Dave will inspire Telford

Business leaders in Telford are set to hear from one of the most inspirational guest speakers they've ever had.

Telford Business Partnership will welcome Blind Dave Heeley to its breakfast meeting on Wednesday, July 4, at The Holiday Inn, Telford.

Dave is renowned for his phenomenal charity efforts and is the only blind person (and only the fourth man in the world) to complete the Ultimate Endurance Challenge - seven marathons on seven continents in seven days.

TBP Chairman, Graham Davies, who is our senior partner, said: "We are really looking forward to welcoming Dave to our breakfast event, and to hearing his inspirational story of how he has met life's obstacles head on and overcome them.

"As well as his Ultimate Endurance Challenge, which he ran with guide Malcolm Carr to raise money for Guide Dogs UK, Dave is well-known for his determination to achieve whatever he sets his mind to.

"He has even driven a car around Brands Hatch and has ridden a motorbike, so to hear his story will be fantastic motivation for all our members."

Dave will be introduced on the day by Kevin Parr, a motivational speaker from the PGS Team. He has worked with a wide range of high performers from Olympic gold medal winners to dynamic business entrepreneurs, and is passionate about helping businesses to increase their motivation.

Telford Business Partnership (TBP) is a growing network of business and professional service companies who promote the diversity and quality of their services to local firms and those relocating to the area. TBP describes itself as "the voice of professional business services", and encourages members to work together to create the right blend of skills to meet every possible business opportunity.
