On Thursday 15th November, as part of Holmewood’s Lecture Programme, we hosted Maggie Alphonsi MBE. A World Cup winning Rugby player and Sportswoman of the Year, she was every bit as dynamic as a speaker as she had been as a player! Outlining her stunning career, she deftly interwove a number of powerful motivational points with amusing anecdotes. She also spent a great deal of time answering questions from the audience before chatting to the girls and boys and signing autographs. It was a great evening and everyone left with both food for thought and a wide smile.
