On 17 April The Henley College welcomed Judo Paralympian Ben Quilter, who gave an uplifting lecture titled ‘Winning in Sport and Maximizing Life Chances’.
Ben Quilter is one of the leading Paralympic athletes of his generation, and one of the most successful visually impaired judo fighters Great Britain has ever produced. Among his sporting achievements to date are eight world and European medals and a bronze medal at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
Quilter said: ‘It’s important to me to be able to come and share some of my experiences. I hope some of the students can take something away from these and apply it to their life. I look forward to seeing these young people go on to achieve great things.’
College Principal Tom Espley added: ‘We were very pleased to welcome Ben Quilter to The Henley College. His lecture proved to be both interesting and inspirational to students and guests.’
The Henley College lecture series has welcomed many high profile speakers over the years including Lord Robert Winston, Terry Waite CBE, Dame Anita Roddick and Dr David Starkey.
Speakers for the coming year include Amazon Vice President Ajay Kavan and CEO of Manchester United, David Gill.
