SIMON WESTON NEW 500PX

SYMPOSIUM KEYNOTE 2017: SIMON WESTON CBE

In 1982 the Sir Galahad was destroyed in Bluff Cove on the Falkland Islands. On board was Simon Weston, Welsh Guardsman, a name and face that was going to become well known for his struggle to overcome his injuries (46% burns) and redefine his role in life.

Following his injuries, Simon's road to physical, spiritual and mental recovery saw him active in a number of highly successful ventures including 'The Weston Spirit', a Liverpool-based young people's charity. His charitable work earned him an OBE in the 1992 Queen's Birthday Honours.  A successful businessman too, Simon currently runs his own security business in South Wales and is a director of Zappawoo, set up to help transform the disabled holiday market.

Simon's message is one of achievement, of triumph over adversity, of seizing the moment and succeeding.  Symposium attendees will hear Simon talk about overcoming adversity and the power of positive mental attitude, alongside his experiences of being in the public eye over the last 30 years.
