Inspiration strikes in Telford

Business leaders in Telford say they have been truly inspired by one of the most motivational guest speakers they've ever had.

Telford Business Partnership welcomed Blind Dave Heeley and his guide dog, Seamus, to its quarterly breakfast meeting 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.

He told TBP members he would never have completed the challenge without the support of his family and his back-up team.

Outgoing chairman, Graham Davies, who is our senior partner, said: "It was really humbling to hear just how dedicated Dave is to making the most of every day, and there were some incredible stories which I'm sure our members will take away and learn from."
