Liz is one of the biggest and brightest personalities to emerge from the growth of Paralympic sport in the last decade.

Liz, who was born with Cerebral Palsy, has competed in 3 Paralympic Games and has a remarkable backstory that demonstrates resilience, determination and talent which culminated in winning a Paralympic Gold medal in Beijing in 2008 despite the greatest personal challenges imaginable. The Swansea University Business Management graduate also had the honour of reading the Athlete Oath at the London 2012 Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony as well as taking part and winning further medals.

Now retired, she enjoyed a tremendous 2016, being heralded as one of the stars of Channel 4’s award winning production of the Rio Paralympic Games.

Now experienced in addressing small and large audiences, feedback from all her corporate appearances has been outstanding due to her charismatic and energetic delivery coupled with her warm personality - audiences are touched and inspired by her story.
