TOPIC: Gunning for gold; the mindset of a successful Olympic and World athlete

  • How to get the best out of the individual in order to make the team successful.
  • The correct mindset needed to succeed.
  • Understanding yourself as well as others in order to succeed.

One of Britain’s most famous athletes, Derek Redmond is a World and European relay champion. Having broken the British 400m record on two occasions, Derek was one of the country’s best athletes during the 1980s and 1990s. A key member of the relay squad that won gold at the 1991 World Championships in Tokyo, he competed at the highest level for over a decade.

At the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Derek became part of one of the most inspirational scenes in Olympic history. In the 400m semi-final Derek went into the race amongst the favourites but as he passed the 250m mark he tore his hamstring. Determined to finish the race he hobbled to the finish line with the help of his father as a 65,000-strong crowd cheered him on. This incident has since been voted one of the Olympics’ most inspirational moments by US network NBC and even referenced by Barack Obama in a presidential speech.

Derek’s story is truly inspiring and he now works as a motivational speaker and will share his remarkable story with In-house Recruitment LIVE! Manchester audiences for what is set to be an unmissable keynote presentation.
