About: Marc Woods
As a teenager, Marc Woods would describe himself as ‘lazy’. Faced with a daunting situation, he took personal responsibility to get on with his life to the best of his ability.
In this presentation, Marc describes having to learn to walk again and how taking the time to do that as well as he possibly could, still positively impacts his life today.
A county standard swimmer as a teenager, Marc Woods had his left leg amputated because of cancer when he was 17. His dream became to simply be the best that he could be and just 18 months after he finished his chemotherapy he was selected to represent Great Britain.
Marc co-founded the Leadership Advisory business, Equiida, and now spends his time working with organisations around the world as an executive coach and speaker. He focuses this work around developing personal awareness, taking responsibility, leadership effectiveness, teamwork and inclusion.
