Reinventing one’s career is daunting, especially when changing industries. On Thursday 6th April 6pm we are bringing together the worlds of sport and hospitality to listen to inspiring, emotional stories.

Speaking on the night:
Former England rugby player Simon Halliday worked for Lehman’s, Lynn Blades is an ex-All American swimmer who became a CNN presenter and Brian Deane is a former Premiership footballer who went into coaching management. Angela Wilson, former team GB member (pictured below) has created a franchise of swimming schools.
All have reinvented themselves in different ways.

During the evening at The May Fair Hotel we will hear from many sporting stars who will share their experiences in the sporting world. As many know, a sports career is often short so many have to reinvent themselves and forge new paths.



  • Simon Halliday, Grand Slam winner and Chairman of European Professional Club Rugby
  • Lynn Blades, former All American Swimmer
  • Former English rugby union player, Paul Sackey
