Over the coming weeks, the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust will be hosting our ‘Unlocking Performance – Bite Size Briefings’ webinar series led by our world-class athletes. Covering a range of topics, each webinar will provide you with a unique insight into the key attitudes and mindset that drive a world-class team and individual performance.

As we continue to adapt to the new norm of working remotely from colleagues, we hope that these sessions will stimulate new ideas and personal development, leaving you feeling motivated, energised and inspired to be better performing individuals and collective team members. The sessions all take place from 1 - 1.30pm and cover the following topics:
