Starting and finishing: why do some people achieve what looks to others as impossible?

Thursday, 10 April 2014 00:00

Tom Boother has, on the surface, a conventional business background. He studied law at The College of Law, London, before working in the technology sector, reaching sales director and helping secure venture capital funds into a start-up within 4 years of graduating from college. However his journey has exposed him (and continues to expose him) to some distinctly non-conventional experiences which have shaped his thinking about motivation, determination and self-belief which he will share with the Business Café today.

It was when studying at the College of Law, and with no athletic ability, Tom stumbled into the bizarre world of Ultra Running. Over the last 8 years he has tested his body (and sanity) while completing some of Europe's most challenging runs. With the initial objective to complete an alpine 100 mile event Tom has now surpassed that with his longest non-stop run being 145 miles.

Starting and finishing: why do some people achieve what looks to others as impossible? Tom will give us a fresh perspective into starting and finishing (whether in work or life), however big the challenge is, using insights from the lessons he has learnt while running extreme distances.
