NEW EVENT : Behind The Scenes Of Personal Achievement – Teamwork, Determination & Courage

We are delighted to announce details of our next, and final event of 2017, ‘Behind The Scenes Of Personal Achievement – Teamwork, Determination & Courage’ sponsored by Call Of The Wild.

Join us for an exciting talk by Jeff Smith, a former ice hockey player and, at age 53 recently climbed to the summit of Mount Everest. Jeff had two hip replacements in the months leading up to his successful expedition and has been travelling the country inspiring people with his story, including many visits to schools – helping children to have a dream.

Jeff is also the founder of bigmoose, a not for profit which has the aim of leaving the world a better place than we have found it, with a target of being a conduit to raise a million pounds (or more!) by 2020 for various charities.

We are very grateful to Call Of The Wild for kindly sponsoring this event.
