WELCOME & OPENING REMARKS
COLONEL ANDY REID MBE
8:55 AM – 9:40 AM
“I’m a survivor, not a victim. I’m still here. I’m gonna start setting myself some goals and start moving forward”…
In October 2009, Corporal Andy Reid lost both of his legs and his right arm after stepping on an IED while on patrol in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, with the 3rd Battalion of the Yorkshire Regiment. His injuries were so bad that it was thought he would not survive; however, he astounded people with recovery, returning home after just two weeks in the hospital.
Serving in the British Armed Forces was a childhood dream for Andy, who continues to reflect positively on his time in the army and the fantastic opportunities it allowed him to experience. A testament to his attitude in overcoming adversity, he doesn’t let the severity of his injuries stop him from living his life with a positive mindset.
• Overcoming adversity
• A lesson on achieving your goals
• Leading by example
DANNY SCULTHORPE &
9:40 AM – 10:25 AM
IT’S OK NOT TO BE OK
“Ask a friend if they’re OK and ask them again because you just might trigger something inside them
and they get all their worries off their chest … that one question could save a life”
Danny was a professional rugby league player with a number of clubs; Rochdale, Wigan, Castlefield, Bradford, Huddersfield and Wakefield. He was fortunate to also represent his country and captained the team on two occasions.
During a training accident he was forced into retirement and suffered severe depression and despair
with frequent thoughts of taking his life.
Phil, an Australian ex Super League player with over 500 appearances in the top grade. He played for Souths in Australia and then to St Helens, Huddersfield, Swinton in the UK with great success, he also represented Scotland. After coming to the end of his playing career he embarked on a coaching career, this being very successful with numerous trophies won. Through management he suffered badly with depression on top of a family tragedy, his issues got worse.
Danny and Phil will openly speak about the difficult times and how as a result of talking and sharing
their thoughts they were able to recover and as a result have and are helping many others tackle the stigma of mental health.

WELLBEING…BEYOND FRESH FRUIT AND MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID…TOGETHER LET’S TACKLE THE STIGMA OF MENTAL HEALTH
11:50 AM – 12:30 PM
CHASING THE DREAM
One moment aged 15 sparked a belief and desire in Helen that led her onto achieving a dream against the odds… At the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens she became the first British woman to win an Olympic Canoeing medal. Although aspirations of a gold, her bronze medal on that day made the many years of challenges worthwhile
She credits the lessons learnt on route to achieving her dream of becoming an Olympic medalist to the fulfilling life she leads.
Helen isn’t one for letting the grass grow under her feet and thrives from personal development. Inspired by the impact her Olympic coach’s new NLP skills had on her performance she trained as NLP practitioner and reflexologist.
“If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it”, a quote very close to Helen’s heart to which she’ll explain through her talk.
• The power of a dream and importance of a goal.
• Enjoy the journey through the rough and the smooth.
• Never give up.
• Expect the unexpected.

WHAT CAN SHAKESPEARE & PLANET OF THE APES SHOW US ABOUT REAL ENGAGEMENT?
Through the lenses of Shakespeare and Planet of the Apes, Steve will explore with us how power
differences between people can impact our operational performance.
He’ll ask us to personally consider … Just what IS our power? Do we know our impact? Why does it matter? What happens when we use our power well …and not? And how essential it is that we own our power, in service of developing mutual power in operational settings?
• Know your impact – you have much to bring – and to learn
• Own your power, in relationship with others
• It’s all about “the play” – “the whole cast” – not just one or two lead actors
DIRECTOR OF THE NATIONAL CENTRE FOR STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP AT BABINGTON
2:50 PM – 3:30 PM
SHIFT YOUR SHADOW
Every leader and manager casts a shadow. It is in the way people feel about you, the things they associate you with and the way they see you behave. For most the shadow is something they don’t think about or even see. For some, it can be more of a hindrance than a help. In this session, Nigel will look at the way your shadow is formed and whether it needs to be shifted a little in order to get different responses and have better impacts on those around you.
• Why your shadow affects everything you do
• How your shadow may look different to others
• How changing the way others see you can shift performance to a whole new level
