Inspired Exchange is delighted to announce that our client Martine Wright has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list 2016. The award is made in recognition of Martine’s services to sport.
Martine has become a truly inspirational public figure sharing the story of her resilience and rehabilitation from the horrors of 7/7 where she suffered immense traumas, including loss of her legs through to appearing as a sitting volleyball Paralympic athlete in London 2012. Martine has subsequently spoken to thousands of people in different businesses about her experiences and why her 7 keys to success, now guide her life. She has danced in a Strictly Come Dancing special, been a Champion for Team London and undertaken key work for a range of charities.
"I am absolutely honoured to accept this award. I am a product of the power of sport which has positively impacted not only my life but also those of many others across our nation. This is an award that recognises the contribution of volunteers, coaches and officials and those behind the scenes that help to put the ‘great’ into Britain.”
