October Lunch with Dafydd James, Former British Lion
Location: Parc y Scarlets, Llanelli
We will welcome former British Lion and now a respected rugby pundit, Dafydd James, as guest speaker at the Club’s October lunch, at Parc Y Scarlets Llanelli. However, the focus of Dafydd’s talk will be upon his struggles off the pitch, as much as his triumphs on the pitch. Having experienced depression and anxiety, Dafydd has become an Ambassador for Welsh mental health charity Hafal, campaigning to improve the lives of people across Wales who are affected by mental illness. He will highlight the role that employers and workmates have to play in supporting colleagues with mental health issues, and ensuring those with such issues are treated fairly.
The lunch will go ahead on Thursday 17 October and our members and their guests will be treated to a two-course lunch whilst being able to take advantage of the opportunities to network with other members of the business community from across the Swansea Bay City region.
Dafydd has, since his youth, represented his country on every level possible in rugby, from Wales Youth and Wales Students, to becoming a dazzling Wales Sevens player. He was the first man to player to score 25 tries in the Heineken Cup European Competition, attaining 48 caps for the Wales Senior team, and becoming a British Lion.
Having accomplished so much on the field, Dafydd has since spoken very openly about some of the mental health issues that can affect people within competitive sport – as much as in any other sphere of life.
Tickets to Swansea Bay Business Club’s April lunch with Dafydd James are priced at £25 for members and £32.50 for non-members. This will include a two-course lunch.
Bookings will close at midnight on Friday 11 October, one week before the event.
The lunch will be held at Parc Y Scarlets in Llanelli and guests are asked to arrive from 12:15 for a 1:00pm lunch.
PLEASE NOTE CHANGE IN DATE TO THURSDAY 17TH OCTOBER
