The former professional rugby player took part in a virtual speaking engagement booked by MN2S for a global corporate client.
Not only a star of the rugby world and a former member of the Welsh national team, Gareth Thomas is a leading voice in the LGBTQ community, having received Stonewall’s Hero of the Year Award and been voted the most influential gay person in the UK for The Independent on Sunday. As an authority on inclusivity and diversity and an inspiration for many across the globe, he was a perfect choice for an online speaking engagement that saw Thomas discuss how his identity has shaped his professional life, how diversity and inclusion can be applied across all industries, and the importance of community, solidarity, and allies across all corners of society.
The client was hugely satisfied with Gareth’s one-hour talk, remarking: “Gareth was a fantastic speaker. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and delivered an outstanding speech. As a network we’re thrilled with what he delivered and thank him for being so vulnerable. It’s worth noting the many many positive comments we had from people. Please pass my personal thanks on to Gareth – working with him today on Zoom was a delight and super easy from the facilitator side of things.“
