Disability sporting issues

The power of sport to effect social change

 A truly inspiration and excellent key note presentation at the Towards World Class HR in the North West Conference. Thank you for your valuable contribution.

NHS North West Conference

Tanni presented to a room of some 200 Sainsbury's colleagues. All our colleagues found her stories of her...sports career both fascinating and inspiring. Her desire to succeed was obvious and certainly something to think about! Sport Relief and Comic Relief are topics very close to the hearts of our colleagues. Tanni shared with us her experiences of working with Comic and Sport relief and gave examples which helped illustrate the impact of the money that we raise has on people less fortunate than us. Tanni took questions from the audience. Her natural, relaxed style made colleagues feel able to ask many questions across a raft of topics, not least her role on Transport for London.


We're over the moon. Tanni was absolutely fantastic.

Welsh Assembly, motivational/diversity keynote
