QEF are excited to welcome Simon Weston CBE and his irrepressible humour and engaging personality to The 52nd Annual Guinness & Oyster Luncheon as our guest speaker.

In 1982 the Sir Galahad was destroyed in Bluff Cove on the Falkland Islands. On board was Simon Weston, Welsh Guardsman, a name and face that was going to become well known for his struggle to overcome his injuries (46% burns) and redefine his role in life. Simon's message is one of achievement, of triumph over adversity, of seizing the moment and succeeding.

Simon not only talks about overcoming adversity and positive mental attitude but also his experiences of being in the public eye over the last 30 years. 

“Simon was fantastic. His speech was both emotional and witty. It was a wonderful highlight to a very successful first day of the Summit.” – Jan 2017 Annual Company Summit

"Simon was brilliant! What an inspirational and lovely person. I could have listened to him for hours . He made a huge impact on me and many others." Vodafone
