Overcoming Adversity
In early 2016, British short track speed skater Elise Christie won the overall European Championships. The Olympic speaker also came first in the 500m, 1,000m and 1,500m races in 2014 Sochi Olympic Games, in Russia. These victories were particularly sweet because two years earlier at the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games, she was disqualified from the 500m after an Italian skater collided with her. Two days later Elise was disqualified again, this time in the 1500m, for failing to cross the finishing line.

Shortly afterwards she was penalised for colliding with a Chinese skater in the 1000m semi-final. After such disappointment, Elise developed the skills needed to overcome adversity – including perseverance, determination and mental strength. In her speeches, she shares these methods with her audience as well as the memories of the highs and lows that she has experienced throughout her career. Delegates from many sectors can relate to how thin the line can be between success and failure, and can empathise with how important it is to face both in the same way.
