Join us at Fratton Park, home of Portsmouth Football Club, for our November networking event to enjoy breakfast, a chance to meet members and guests, as well as hearing from guest speaker, Deborah Phillips.
Deborah is an open water swim coach, swimming teacher and motivational speaker, who having only started open water swimming in 2013, swam the English Channel in 2017.
Overcoming adversity and a number of obstacles along the way, as well as losing her father to drowning when she was younger, Deborah combatted bad weather, enormous waves, wind, jellyfish, darkness, cold seas and mental demons to make it across the Channel in a time of 17 hours and 23 minutes. She believes the positive mental attitude adopted got her through the swim and can help people achieve anything in life, along with determination, hard work and courage, whether that be personally or professionally.
