The AMOSSHE national conference 360 degree thinking is all set to be an inspiring showcase for how Student Services leaders can really make a difference. Our final keynote speaker, Ben Smith, is joining us on Friday 7 July to share his insights into how one person can make a huge impact.
In 2015 Ben ran 401 marathons in 401 days around the UK to raise £250,000 for Kidscape and Stonewall, charities dedicated to tackling bullying in our society. Ben challenged himself to run the same distance as from London to Sydney to overcome the mental health issues, homophobia and bullying he had experienced in his life. His achievement has inspired others to do things they never thought were possible. Ben and The 401 Challenge team have received awards for this inspiring project, including the Regional and National Pride of Britain Fundraiser of the Year Award 2016, the Power of Light Award 2016 from the Cabinet Office and Prime Minister Theresa May, and the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Helen Rollason Award 2016.
Ben joins our other keynote speakers Wes Streeting, Nicola Dandridge and Lee Elliot Major, to enhance our programme of AMOSSHE member- and sector-led sessions exploring all angles to drive student success – encompassing inspiring leadership, effective collaboration and innovative practice.
