Keynote Title and Synopsis: The Power of 7

Martine Wright is a survivor of the never to be forgotten day in 2005 when terror hit the streets of London. As 52 people lost their lives in a series of attacks across London, she was the last survivor pulled from the train in Aldgate, losing her legs, and very nearly her life. The events of 7/7 are one bookend of her life in which her remarkable fight for recovery and rehabilitation culminated in becoming a Team GB Paralympian, appearing at London 2012.

In tribute to those that died that day Martine chose to wear the number 7 team shirt and will share with you how she developed and adopted her mantra of the ‘Power of 7’ to provide resilience, positivity, structure and new purpose into her much-changed world.

Her compelling story of survival to sporting success and her easy and refreshingly honest approach will provide inspiration and clear key messages to all who take part in Martine’s presentation:
