Olympic gold medallist Sally Gunnell is the guest speaker at a business conference in Ely next month.

She will address this year’s East Cambs Business Boost in its second year, an event created by East Cambs District Council and the Cambridgeshire chambers of commerce.

Sally is the only female British athlete to have held Olympic, world, European and Commonwealth titles concurrently.

She will tell local business leaders about her journey from sporting success to how she has applied it to her business.

Sally will cover topics such as the importance of wellbeing at home and in the workplace, as well as how to build resilience in day to day life.

The event will bring together over 200 local SMEs through networking, business exhibitions and seminars.

Sally said: “I’m very much looking forward to be speaking at this event. I work with organisations of all sizes applying techniques and experiences learned from the Olympic track to the board room.
