Special Guest at OOW
Charles Phillips opened his keynote with a great overview and then introduced Michael Phelps, Olympic Gold Medals Winner.
This guy had a dream to be the best and achieve something no other person had ever done, and he did it. hats off to him for the dedication and achievement. As a mum who drove her daughter to swimming training until other interests took over I have a small insight into what personal sacrifices he and his family must have made.
I was honoured to be asked to attend a meet and greet brunch with Michael and he was such a nice individual.
During his talk with Charles he said that whilst many millions saw him on TV he had not actually had 4000 in the same room so OOW was his biggest audience to date.
Great motivation speech for us all.
