As usual a panel of elite athletes will share stories of their recent sporting successes. A second panel of women who were involved in the first breakfast will reflect on the advances for girls and women in sport over the past 25 years and share their insights into making a career in the health, sport and physical activity industries. Don't miss out on this very special event.
