SAIF is delighted to announce that guest speaker at the AGM Weekend in March will be Simon Weston CBE.  Simon is a veteran of the British Army who has become well known   Simon Westonthroughout the United Kingdom for his recovery and charity work after suffering severe burn injuries during the Falklands War.  Simon’s message is one of achievement, of triumph over adversity, of seizing the moment and succeeding.

Following his injuries, Simon’s road to physical, spiritual and mental recovery saw him active in a number of highly successful ventures and he has earned many special honours, including:

  • an OBE
  • the Freedom of the Cities of Liverpool and London
  • Top of the UK`s Heroes Index and named as the Nations Favourite Hero
  • a Legend Award by the Variety Childrens charity
  • the CBE for his charitable work in 2016

Along with Simon’s work with a number of charities, he is also a professional motivational speaker with over 25 years experience. Simon not only talks about overcoming adversity and positive mental attitude but also his experiences of being in the public eye over the last 30 years.  His irrepressible humour, infectious enthusiasm and immediately engaging personality, have made him the number one choice of many companies who invite him back to speak time and again.

Simon’s talk is an opportunity not to be missed!  SAIF Members may hear Simon on the afternoon of Friday 11th March, the kick-off event for our 2016 AGM Banquet Weekend.  Click here for details of how to book.
