BIO

At the London 2012 Paralympic Games, Naomi Riches achieved what some athletes only dream of winning a Gold Medal in front of a home crowd. She now uses her lived experience to inspire, motivate and enable others. Naomi delivers her story - Playground to Podium - putting adversity and seemingly insurmountable challenges, firmly into perspective, with her personal story of achievement, against the odds. I was one disabled child in a mainstream school of 800. I was not important, most teachers did not cater for me needs, and my peers didn’t try to understand. I left school with poor grades, and little to no self-confidence. All I wanted to do was to not be defined by my visual impairment. I set out to prove the teachers and the bullies wrong - I won gold at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. When I deliver a speech, I take the audience from the Playground to Podium and beyond. I want my audience to feel inspired, motivated to step up and empowered to realise their full potential.
