Plenary Sessions

Overcoming Adversity

Date: Wednesday 11 October

Time: 14:30 - 15:00

Rob and Paul were orphaned but survived the Tsunami in Sri Lanka on Boxing Day in 2004. The founders of the Gandys casual footwear range have turned their personal tragedy into devoting their lives to help other underprivileged children through the funds raised by their company, which has evolved from the sale of flip flops into a lifestyle brand with stores opening in London in 2016. Entrepreneurs, philanthropists, authors and professional speakers – their fees are donated to their charity, Orphans for Orphans – their story is set to provide a compelling end to this year’s business sessions.
