Speaker Bureau

Here at the Don’t Panic Speaker Bureau we always aim to give you what you want, and who you want. So, as always we’ve been busy lining up new speakers for you to hear and plenty of events for them to attend.

This week we have two new additions to our bureau, and we can’t wait for you to meet them.

Claire Lomas

Since her freak accident in the highest level of eventing, Claire has found new sports including skiing, set up a business, written a book and organised fundraising events. Her life has been turned around, but it did have one similarity, she was busy again.

Claire speaks publicly about the split second that changed her life, and candidly describes the darkest times alongside the gradual process of turning her situation around, and surprisingly how the best five days of her life have all been after her devastating injury.

Richard Charles Lawrence

From the height of conflict with the Taliban to studying a masters degree in Philosophy.

Richard has gone from successfully solving complex problems on the battlefield to a qualified hypnotherapist, an award-winning salesman in the pharmaceutical industry and a chief instructor of the martial art ‘Keysi’.

His talks are thought provoking with topics ranging from how to cope with pressure through to being more effective in leading and thinking.
