Darren Harris: BAES Author Event

webbanner - My Commonwealth Story.png

Founder of Unblind the Mind, Darren Harris, lost his sight after being diagnosed and treated for cancer of both eyes aged fifteen months. He went on to win 157 caps and 10 World and European medals, making him England’s most decorated blind footballer.

He is now a sought after, bestselling author, speaker and coach who works with organisations that want life challenges to unleash rather than limit potential.

Come along to hear Darren Harris discuss how challenges unleash rather than limit potential. Open to all BAES students, regardless of course subject. You do not have to consider yourself a 'reader' to get involved!
