Record-breaking Olympic idol to give success talk
Published at 16:32, Monday, 15 October 2012
A DOUBLE Olympic gold medallist is set to appear at an event promoting the excellence of workers.
Dame Kelly Holmes has been announced as the star guest at Sellafield’s business excellence event, which is due to take place at the Energus Centre, Workington, on October 31.
Dame Kelly, who won gold in the 800m and 1,500m at the Athens Olympics in 2004, still holds British records for the 600m, 800m, 1,000m, and 1,500m distances.
A number of high-flyers from the West Cumbrian site will be exhibiting their work which goes above and beyond expectations.
The theme of this year’s business excellence event is “quality: delivering competitive advantage”.
Following a successful summer for Team GB at the Olympics, Dame Kelly will offer delegates an insider’s view on “the business of winning” .
Dame Kelly, who served as a sergeant in the army, will be speaking about her experience not only on the track, but also her company Double Gold and her charity, the Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust.
She will be speaking to businesses about having the passion and courage to succeed and how this translates into everyday working life.
In addition to this event, Sellafield Ltd has partnered with the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health to host a second day dedicated to Safety Excellence, which will see a range of respected speakers, such as Lord Robert Winston, address delegates on health and safety.
Up to 35 stands will be manned by Sellafield site improvement teams highlighting excellent examples of improved business and safety-related performance over the past year.
A judging panel comprising Sellafield Ltd’s executive directors will decide the winners of the best improvement team in 14 different categories over the two days.
