Olympic Sally


inspires store staff O


lympic gold medallist Sally Gunnell was at John Lewis in Watford recently as part of


her role as the ambassador of the retailer‘s Partners in Sport programme. The scheme has been set up to enable Partners


to engage in sport, touch the spirit of London 2012 and generally have a healthier lifestyle. During her time there the Olympic hurdler


gave a motivational speech to the management team to explain how sport can be used to inspire people to stay healthy and the important role that employers should play in motivating its workforce to get active. She also shared her own experiences in


overcoming individual and team challenges throughout her career. Sally said: ―It was great to visit John Lewis


Watford and have the opportunity to talk to Partners and share my experience of the challenges I have faced throughout my career. ―Through my running I learnt how essential it


was to prepare and believe in yourself and it is this message that I want to pass on to help motivate others. I believe it is important for


Sally Gunnell (centre) at John Lewis, Watford.


John Lewis as a whole to help Partners be healthy and look after their well-being and I‘m delighted I‘m getting the chance to help to do this through my role with Partners in Sport.‖ Paul Freeman, section manager, menswear,


John Lewis Watford said: ―Meeting Sally Gunnell and listening to her talk has really inspired me. One of the areas she talked about was having the self belief that you can achieve the targets that you‘ve set. This is something that really resonates and I will certainly keep Sally‘s inspiration front of mind as I strive to achieve both my goals.‖
