There are lots of great stories about friends who start businesses and have fun while they make money. What isn’t so well known are the disagreements, disappointments and misunderstandings that can lead to either the business or the friendship biting the…

Hear how determination, drive and focus can create incredible results!

When Lucy Gossage used to lug her bike through busy lung cancer clinics, changing from sports kit into more professional attire in the toilets before seeing patients, most people thought she was "just a bit of a nutter."
But over the past decade the cancer doctor has gone from dabbling in triathlon for a dare, to winning long-distance races against full-time professionals.
While many of her fellow competitors were training all day, Lucy was spending endless hours in Cambridge laboratories doing research for a PhD into kidney cancer.
Her dedication and hard work has paid off on both fronts.
Not only has Lucy just completed her PhD, but with two Ironman wins in 2013 she was voted female Long Distance Triathlete of the Year by British Triathlon.
Now, with her studies finally out of the way, she is taking a well-earned two-year sabbatical to train and race full time - and she's sparing some of that time to come and talk to us at Drive!
After Lucy's talk we'll be doing some masterminding - learning a process for sharing our experience and skills to help each other to build our businesses.
Come and join us on Wednesday 22nd June at 11am in Huntingdon https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/drive-the-network-huntingdon-st-ives-tickets-26074122402

Its not just about binary or not, its about whose business it is and why anyone needs to know if someone is male or female (or anything else). The Swedes use "hen" and several British institutions now have Mx as an alternative to Mr or Mrs/Ms.
