The first in the new season of JLA’s Speakers Breakfasts featured those that have experienced the toughest challenges, kept going, and now recount gripping, inspiring stories.

Martin Elliott – paediatric surgeon and Co-Medical Director of Great Ormond Street; Martin has held lives in his hands and looks at the pressure on both teams and leaders, and examines the importance of taking lessons from outside your field.

Giles Duley – award-winning conflict photographer and campaigner; Giles turned his back on music and fashion photography to work for charities in conflict and disaster zones. Whilst working in Afghanistan he lost both legs and his left arm in an IED explosion. He fought to recover and return to work and now asks others to consider their story, their passion and their goals.

Alastair Humphreys – adventurer and author; despite having taken on challenges including a four year cycle around the world and the Marathon des Sables (a six day run across the Sahara), Alistair encourages others to take on ‘micro-adventures’; to commit to simple, realistic challenges whilst also overcoming the toughest hurdle of all – the first step.
