10% chance of survival
This is Anthony Bennett's captivating account on the power of teamwork, after a school trip to Disneyland Paris left him fighting for his life and needing to re-learn the very basic functions such as breathing, walking and talking.
After making a full recovery, Anthony played a key role in winning a £10m charity partnership for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity and inspiring and leading a team of 20,000 people to raise the funds which went towards a new cardiac wing at the children's hospital.
With a highly infectious and positive outlook on life, Anthony takes his audience on a crucial journey on how he turned a huge negative situation and used it to fuel positive outward ripples in his daily life..
