I had the opportunity yesterday evening (Thursday 11 December) to listen to the very inspirational speaker Baroness Tanni Grey Thompson. The Baroness talked about her career in athletics and her new career as a member of the House of Lords. Tanni was speaking in the Energus building at Lillyhall at a motivational masterclass organised by the Centre for Leadership Performance.
It was interesting listening to what motivated her in sport and what now motivates her in Parliament. It was clear that the Baroness has strong determination to succeed and to do well at all she does. She is focussed and very self-motivated which in turn is motivational to others.
We were treated to some specific stories from both of her careers which showed her strength of character and determination to succeed.
Baroness Grey Thompson spoke with passion and warmth which reflects the business passion in West Cumbria.
It was a most enjoyable way to spend a Thursday evening.
