Next meeting 7th April 8.30 am – 11.00 am

Future Business Centre, Cambridge

Sink or Swim


The April meeting of DRIVE in Cambridge sees Ed Williams from the Elite Swimming Academy share how he channels his personal drive to achieve big, bold, audacious goals in his personal and business life.

Ed has built a successful business on the back of his passion and constantly sets himself challenges. He will share how he deals with these massive challenges and achieves his ambitions.

These are real life experiences, so it doesn’t always work out the first time. There have been unexpected challenges along the way, both personal and professional, Ed has learnt a lot about himself, his team and those who are closest to him, his family. He will share his personal insight into the best ways to address set backs, why it’s just not real to succeed at everything first time and the important learning that a perceived set back will bring to many other aspects of your life and your business.


If you’re new to DRIVE, check out this website to find out more about what we’re doing, our approach, ethics and much more. You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter but the best place to experience DRIVE is in person, at an event like this. Everyone is welcome, this is a friendly, open group sharing and inspiring one another. I hope that you can make it.
