“I am delighted to be speaking at FINA’s World Aquatics Convention in Hangzhou. I am a passionate believer in the ability of sport to change lives, inspiring people all over the world and bringing them together in a uniquely powerful way. Through my session, I hope to show attendees how they can use the lessons of fundraising to increase their income and to engage in new and innovative ways with their audiences, helping them make an ever-bigger impact and fulfil their visions for their organisations.”
