Breakfast with an Olympian

February 9, 2024

On Wednesday 7th February, Reigate Manor, in association with Gatwick Diamond Business, hosted the first of their new Manor Breakfast Club events. 55 guests from local businesses all over Surrey, Kent, Sussex and South London were in attendance to hear from Olympian Roger Black.

Roger, a triple Olympic Medallist, delved into the highs and lows he experienced as a professional athlete along with what it takes to compete at the Olympics to achieve success.

Operations Director Giles Thomas said “Our first Manor Breakfast Club was a fabulous morning with some great businesses in attendance. Roger was a true Champion sharing his career, answering questions from the guests on the day and sharing his medals for all to enjoy.”

Attendees from the day also shared their praise on Linkediin.
