To reach the pinnacle of international success Giles Long had to overcome cancer. For twelve years he has represented Great Britain at the highest level in the world of swimming, both as a Butterfly and Individual Medley swimmer and as a relay team member. He won twenty major Championship medals including Paralympic, European, and World Championship Gold medals. His greatest achievement was winning the Paralympic 100m Butterfly Gold medal, in October 2000, in a World Record time.
Giles is entertaining, incredibly funny and above all a deliverer of core business messages. His speech, titled Changing to Win, highlights to people the importance of perceiving change as a positive and driving change to produce positive outcomes. Giles also demonstrates how everyone is part of many more teams than they are aware of, both in their work and their personal lives, and that everyone is a leader of at least one team.
