This week saw the third ‘BM Network’ event take place where around 40 clients and contacts of Four Broadgate heard motivational speaker and ultra marathon runner, Chris Moon, discuss ‘Succeeding in Adversity’.
The event, which took place in the Studio Bar at the Andaz Hotel, allows our clients to meet and network in a relaxed environment. They were able to cement previous relationships, add to their own contacts and develop new business opportunities. On previous occasions, our events have seen new commercial tie ups formed after introductions on the night.
The highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the speech by Chris Moon. Chris, an ex army officer, survived capture by Khmer Rouge guerrillas in Cambodia, then whilst working for a mine clearing charity in Mozambique, Chris was seriously injured losing his lower right arm and leg. Within a year of leaving hospital, Chris ran the London Marathon. Over the years he has raised several million pounds for charity and now runs the world’s toughest ultra-marathons and extreme races including the Badwater Death Valley ultra-marathon and the marathon des sables. Chris has truly had firsthand experience on ‘Succeeding in Adversity’.
The event had a fantastic turn out from Four Broadgate clients, colleagues and friends, and we are already looking forward to organising the next event.
