Meet Paralympic Champion: Aaron Phipps

Your chance to meet a Paralympic Champion!

Southampton-born Aaron Phipps is a British Wheelchair Rugby player and a Gold Medal-winning Paralympic Champion, winning gold at the Tokyo Paralympics 2020. Aaron will be joining us to talk about perseverance and determination, energy and endurance, and his strategies for achieving goals that are transferable to business and life. After the talk, there will be a Q&A so that you have a chance to chat with Aaron.

Aaron is in the Top 100 most influential people in the UK with a disability. On 23 May 2016, Phipps became the first disabled British person to scale Mount Kilimanjaro, completing the ascent on his hands and knees. Aaron was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire in the 2022 New Year for services to Wheelchair Rugby.
