Bearded polar explorer talks to Young Directors' Forum

Places are still available at the Young Director’s Forum’s very first event for Notts and Derby types. It’s being held next Tuesday (12th October from 6pm) at Tonic on Chapel Quarter in Nottingham, attendees will be able to hear the adventures and inspirational tales from Gary King. Not only has he raced to the North Pole and dived out of a balloon over Chicago but he has also been chased by an orangutan! Now he does motivational speaking.

The YDF are already behind Gary’s philosophy of ‘Life is for Living, Not Spectating’ as you can see at Lucy Herreras-Griffiths’ blog. Lucy is a YDF member and throws herself into challenges in the outdoors as well as trying to apply that philosophy to her professional life – the photos are on the blog as proof.

Anyway, the talk with Gary looks to be a good evening, with plenty of chances to mingle and network with peers. Plus, those goodly folk at Tonic have offered a free glass of Prosecco on arrival and 25% discount on evening meals after the talk.
