TVCC has teamed up with Paralympian Aaron Phipps to bring to you a motivational and inspirational webinar.
Why are we hosting this?
We want members to have the feeling that you can run through a brick wall, achieve anything, be the best you can be and be aware of the impact your mental health can have on results you deliver.
If you’re happy with being ‘average’, being ‘okay’, or you’re content with where you are in business or life – then this talk probably isn’t for you!
If you’re wanting to get hyped, get inspired, be given a boost and a kick of motivation from listening to a Paralympian and Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby athlete, this is the talk for you.
Learn first-hand from Aaron the importance of realising your why and grit in facing challenges on a daily basis. It’s how you view these challenges that define you and with the current situation this is invaluable advice for us all, to give us that inspiration to continue to be our best selves and focus on our own wellbeing, goals and choices.
Aaron is a Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby athlete and Paralympian. At 15 Aaron had both of his legs and most of his fingers amputated due to blood poisoning from meningitis. Aaron joined the GB Wheelchair Rugby squad and was selected for the 2012 London Paralympic Games where he scored over half of his team & 39s points.
Aaron is a highly accomplished international sportsman. He works across the UK with young people to help them achieve their goals and is a Sky Sports, Living for Sport, Athlete Mentor.

After a 10km fundraising wheelchair race for the Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF), Aaron’s sporting journey began. Starting with wheelchair racing Aaron competed in two London Marathons, including 2009 where he came fourth, finishing in under two hours. Aaron joined the GB Wheelchair Rugby squad and was selected for the 2012 London Paralympic Games where he scored over half of his team’s points. Not content with just being a Paralympian, in 2016 Aaron decided to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, with a specially adapted off-road wheelchair.
