Paula Dunn guided the Paralympics GB track and field team to great success in Japan – and now she is headed for our National Club Conference in October.
Delegates will gather at the Hilton Hotel on Saturday 9 October for key sessions and a day of learning together from good practice.
And we are delighted to confirm that Paula, a top GB sprinter in the 1990s with England at the Commonwealths and GB and NI at the Olympics, will be our Keynote Speaker.
There will also be presentations on October 9 from Springburn Harriers and Aberdeen AAC as well as Erin Gillen, sportscotland Youth Ambassador.
After her career of the track, Paula successfully moved to coaching. Her work within the Paralympic movement began in 2009 when she was appointed as Performance manager alongside Head Coach Peter Eriksson.
In 2012 Paula Dunn became Paralympic Head Coach, the first female Head Coach at British Athletics. She has overseen one of the most successful periods in history for Para athletics in Britain. Under her leadership in Rio 2016, the ParalympicsGB team came home with an amazing 33 medals.
With Tokyo being postponed a year, Paula offered incredible support to the ParalympicsGB athletes and despite the many challenges has undoubtedly managed to produce a successful team to represent GB in the Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
Paula’s high standards, values and attitude are key to her approach and the success of the team. We very much look forward to hearing from Paula on October 9.
Full details including the online booking have been emailed to the club secretaries.
