Delegates heard from a trio of talented Cornish athletes, with the aim of exploring how dedication and passion for sport can enhance lives and careers when it comes to business.

Keynote speaker Melissa Reid, who is a GB Para-triathlete targeting the Olympic Games in Rio, revealed what drives her on, while there were also talks from UCP head of business development and world martial arts champion Ben Leonard, and Lee Harvey, a professional kitesurfer whose sport is due to replace windsurfing at the 2016 Olympic Games.
