Michaelmas Speaker’s Dinner – 17th Nov

On Friday the 17th of November, the Ospreys were delighted to welcome our guest speaker: GB hockey player Helen Richardson-Walsh (Olympic Gold and Bronze medalist,  European Champion and Quadruple Olympian).

To begin the wonderful evening, which took place at Downing College, there was a pre-dinner Champagne reception where there was the opportunity to mingle and meet one another prior to the dinner.

The three course meal was exceptional, as was the memorable speech delivered by Helen. Helen’s speech mentioned some very powerful ideas on winning mentality and culture, which could translate well to any sport. We were grateful to Helen for bringing along the Olympic Gold medal that she obtained at Rio 2016, and allowing each of the Ospreys to hold it and take pictures with it. It was so inspiring to be able to see an Olympic Gold medal up close!

The Ospreys would like to say a huge thank you to Helen for speaking at our dinner, and we look forward to keeping in touch.
