Tessa Sanderson CBE

A 6 times Olympian (winning Gold in 1984), 3 times Commonwealth Gold Medallist ('78, '86 and '90) and awarded the MBE, OBE and CBE - Tessa Sanderson is one the UK's best loved sporting heroes.

Tessa, currently running her own sports academy in East London, is a warm, fun and engaging speaker who speaks at conferences and events across the UK.

She is the patron of Adoption UK, having adopted 4 year old twins herself, and regularly shares her experiences in the media.

"Tessa was a fantastic guest speaker. Quite apart from giving a wonderful and perfectly judged speech, she took time to speak to every child getting a prize and was most generous with her time and her comments after the ceremonies"
