ABOUT Lessons from a World Champion

What is the Project?

CharlotteWilkinsonloved Judo as a youngster, competing most weekends working her way up to winning national medals by her mid-teens, but always just falling short of the senior British squad.

Life moves on and she left Judo and settled into family life with two beautiful children, putting on a few pounds along the way. Re-entering the sport later on in life she re found her love for it and her competitive streak. Stepping back on the mat for the first time in eight years was both terrifying and exhilarating, providing the motivation to get back in shape and truly achieve something for herself.

Recently, at the end of September 2014Charlottewon her 2ndWorld Veteran’s Judo Championship GOLD Medal!

What a great story and one that she is happy to share... it could inspire other working parents to achieve their own ambitions and be that inspiration for their children.

Charlottecan only get to the Worlds with help from sponsorship and with careful budgeting. Entering high level competitions in the UK and possibly abroad would be beneficialfor future success at the World & European Championships.

While her job requires her to sell the services of her employer, coaching on giving large group presentations would be really useful... so membership of a speakers club would help her inspire more working parents.


Thank you.
