Make 2018 your year of high performance

If you want to make 2018 your year of acceleration and high performance then you need to join us at Twickenham on Wednesday 24 January for our Accelerate 2018 event.

O2 Business is teaming up with Enterprise Nation and England Rugby for Accelerate 2018, a unique event where experts from the worlds of sport and business will talk about how your business can perform at the highest level this year and beyond.

Tickets are £20, with proceeds going to O2’s Go Think Big programme, an initiative that helps young people get the skills and experience they need to land their first dream job.

Accelerate 2018 is an exclusive opportunity to:

  • listen to experts from business and sport talking about how you and your team can perform at the highest level
  • meet the England Rugby Women’s team and hear about the lessons they have learned about performing on the world stage
  • take part in roundtable discussions about performance in business and sport, with two England Women’s players at each table
  • enjoy a guided tour of Twickenham Stadium
  • network with business leaders over drinks and canapés

Meet the Red Roses

It has been a fantastic year for women’s rugby and all of us at O2 are very proud to sponsor the England Rugby teams.

There are now more than 26,000 women and girls playing contact rugby in the UK, a thousand more than the ambitious target set by the RFU back in 2014, and plans are underway to double this number again by 2021.

A key element of the RFU’s strategy included rebranding the England Women’s team as the Red Roses, a name designed to inspire more people to get involved in the sport and to encapsulate what it means to be an England player.

With the team reaching their second successive World Cup final, the RFU’s development work is clearly paying off with this talented team.

Join us at Accelerate 2018 and not only will you get the chance to meet the team, you’ll also hear from a panel of three England Women’s players about the lessons they have learned in performing at a world-class level.

It promises to be a unique and insightful event as we look at the parallels between the lessons on the pitch and within the workplace. So whether you’re looking to reach new markets, take on new staff, or just want to get fit for acceleration in 2018, join us at Twickenham Stadium on Wednesday 24 January 2018.
