Para-athlete tells UKEA dinner guests of the similarities between business and winning gold medals
28 October 2011
The UKEA (UK Electronics Alliance) annual dinner in London on 26 October provided the ideal platform for double gold medal winning cyclist David Stone to tell of the links between success in business and on the track.
The Premier Farnell sponsored tri-cyclist joined Mark Prisk MP, Minister for Enterprise and Innovation, at the Royal Society of Mechanical Engineers to speak at the annual electronics event.
Talking of his challenging year, which included multiple wins, a loss of confidence and an accident that left him knocked out and suffering concussion, he told the audience of electronics industry representatives of his invigorated love for the bike.
“After losing the World Champions jersey I am now the underdog. I want to prove myself and I look forward to the next challenge. I perform better when I have something to prove,” he told the audience. “Planning and training are vital, but we then have to keep our focus, our commitment and determination. This is the case whether it is in business or sport regardless of what this uncertain world throws at us.”
